Hope so, more Mac games would be good. I still like to buy software the old fashioned way though, on disk.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Yes, it's native, and they are optimizing for OpenCL and other Mac-specific stuff. No cider or other such crap. Now, if only they can release something other than third-person shooters which I both dislike and suck at.
Fair enough then, happy to hear I didn't have to resort to a smiley!
Bad attempt at a funny. But if you have to explain...
I thought WAP was dead with real mobile browsers?
Yes, I do get free health care. I live in Canada.
Do Mac or Linux users get a tax credit?
So, what's your point? Bugs are hard to find. Bugs can be fixed, a broken security model cannot.
If the design is good, you can fix the bugs. If the design is fundamentally flawed, you
need to throw it out and start again. There is a difference.
Sure, bugs can always be introduced, and some of these will open security holes. But as long as the fundamental design conforms to a sensible security model, this isn't a big deal. That type of bug can be found through additional code review. (Note that testing is *not* a method to find security bugs.)
As Bruce Schneier has said, trying to bolt on security to an existing product or application can be very difficult and time consuming. Sometimes you even have to redesign things. Designing for security and using secure coding practices from the beginning, however, makes it much, much easier.
Why live your life, why do anything? In the grand scheme of things, there's no point to anything. We create that meaning for ourselves.
Make a declaration that the US will land on Mars before this decade is out, provide the funding, and it can be done.
Yeah, Oracle Apps is in a different category from the Oracle DB. That runs on Linux, Windows, Solaris, HPUX, Mac, etc. No lock-in there. Oracle Apps? Something doesn't do what you want, put in a request, five years later you get it, if you're lucky. But at least it isn't IE only.
Sure, of course I remember. That explains why a company might use IE as their standard browser. It doesn't explain why they would choose an app that depends on IE-only extensions. If you use something based on standards, you're future-proof, if you don't, you can get locked in.
