"...amid all the Linux hoopla, the prime advantage of BSD over
Linux hasn't been widely noted. In merciless precis, it boils down
to this: if you develop code for Linux, the licence Ts & Cs
dictate you put it back into the general pot, and all other
developers get access to it; but if you develop for BSD, you don't
- you get to keep your stuff secret."
"Apple's incredible rotating operating system strategy is
currently all back on the one platform, and the business end is
facing three ways. You've got Classic, running existing apps,
Carbon, dealing with optimised versions of existing apps, and
Cocoa, which is the future - maybe."
"...at the [OS X] launch, Microsoft was enthusiastic, vowing to
develop Office for this new platform. A wilful misreading of this
alleged enthusiasm would have you believe the Microsofties meant
they were going to port to Cocoa, whereas, in fact, the shiftless
buggers will probably just Carbonize it and watch the money roll
in. But if it did port to Cocoa, Microsoft would be developing
an Office suite for BSD, which, of course, is just a heartbeat away
from Office for Linux. Don't tell Bill."
