Where is the love for Linux?
Basically, I'm a software *****. Whatever the customer pays for, that's what I use.
I've been running Vista as a VM instance for a while, mostly to look at the security aspects of it. Business users are going to need to be trained as to what all the allow/disallow prompts mean. MS really tried to batten down the hatches on it. With mixed results IMO.
OS X is based on the CMU Mach kernel and BSD isn't it? I think its got a little NeXTSTEP and A/UX flavor in it as well. I don't follow OS dev the way I used to.
