Sorry if this is out of topic but I couldnt find anywhere else to put this.
But what do you guys think about the possible features that apple will put into mac os 11?
Will they change teh kernel?
Will they change the code they used in OS 10?

That's ten years from now.
When you consider what the iMac was in 1998 - 32 MB of RAM and a 233 mHz processor, and now it is dual 2.4 gHz processors and 1 GB of RAM, who knows.
By that time, it could be that the whole current idea of adding more and more cores will have long run its course. Or it could go the other way, with tens of thousands of micro-cores on a chip, and advanced methods of ultra-parallelizing every algorithm with hardware.
At least I think it's fair to say that mechanical hard drives will be obsolete, finally. If you had asked me in 1983 if mechanical spinning plates would still be used in computers in 2008, I would have said you were crazy.
