nothing but a recompiled version of has at most minor changes, most to strip attribution, hide the theft, or remove debugging output...

Mac OS X 10.3 — the definitive Panther review
Topic: Computers 3:51 pm EST, Nov 13, 2003

It's strange to have gone from years of uncertainty and vaporware to a steady annual supply of major new operating system releases from Apple. But some important questions quickly follow. Do I really want to pay $129 every year for the next version of Mac OS X? Worse, do I really want to deal with the inevitable upgrade hassles and 10.x.0 release bugs every single year? Just as the 10.2.x code base was finally settling down (the botched 10.2.8 release notwithstanding), the Mac community is asked to start all over again with 10.3.0.

Wired 10.12: God Is the Machine
Topic: Computers 12:48 am EST, Nov 21, 2002

Tommaso Toffoli, a quantum computer researcher, puts it best: "In a sense, nature has been continually computing the 'next state' of the universe for billions of years; all we have to do — and, actually, all we can do — is 'hitch a ride' on this huge, ongoing Great Computation."

O'Reilly Network: Bioinformatics Meets Mac OS X [Dec. 14, 2001]
Topic: Computers 5:55 pm EDT, Oct 23, 2002

"Many of the important bioinformatics applications that previously existed only for Unix platforms are now being brought over to the Macintosh, thanks to Mac OS X and its Unix underpinnings."

One of many reasons why I want a Mac OSX system. I know this article is old...but as it is new and relevant to me, I thought I would meme it:)

Flirting With Mac OS X
Topic: Computers 9:41 pm EDT, Sep 24, 2002

I was immediately attracted by a very intriguing and pleasant desktop on the laptop's gorgeous screen.

I watched in jealous disgust as the guy next to me fired up a terminal window and ssh'ed to some server and ran a pine mail session.

That's it, I decided. I am going to get a Mac OS X laptop, too.

That was a few weeks ago.

Unix guru Moshe Bar loves his titanium G4 PowerBook (even though he skimped on the RAM). Who settles for 512 MB when you can have 1 GB?

The Rotten Apple
Topic: Computers 12:41 am EDT, Sep 16, 2002

Crack the case open and out pops the heart and soul of a monster that is far from a G4. Duck took extra care to keep all the cables tucked away or neatly loomed. What you can't see in these pics is the "refrigerator light" that was installed. You know, so when you are at the darkly lit LAN and you need to pop your box open to do a bit of work. The Rotten Apple has two white cold cathodes that come on when the door is opened to guide you on your flashlight required.


Fresh on the heels of the DIY G4 meme, here's one from HardOCP about converting G4's to the dark side... MWUHAHAH!!!

[Hey, I resent them trying to make it look "unchick-like". I think the "manly" version looks pretty rad:) - Nano]
