: : Linux and Apple, I was reading somewhere that Linux and Apple are in the midst of taking Linux (far better than windows) to a whole new level.

: Linux isn't a company, it's an operating system... and Apple's flavor of UNIX (MacOS X) is COMPLETELY different than the Linux flavor of UNIX.

: Software for one can be recompiled to run on the other pretty easily, but the actual OS is very different in nature and therefore impossible to merge.

: to my eyes, Apple fulfilled the promise of Linux with MacOS X. Granted, it's not *free* so most Linux kids will never touch it, but Apple has brought UNIX to the desktop with a full range of applications that Linux users will NEVER see.

: give OS X another year to mature and then add Intel/AMD support and you will have your Windows killer.

: but that may be just me...
