I really hope they keep the non-Retina MacBook Pro in their line-up and upgrade it to Haswell. There's a chance, because from what I've read, they're pretty popular in the education market. Right now, apart from the Mac mini, it's the only user-serviceable computer in Apple's line-up, with easy RAM and disk upgrades. And yes, some of us actually need that Ethernet port and a DVD-ROM drive!

Oh quit the whining already!

Get Windows 8, install ClassicShell from http://www.classicshell.net/ and you're set. You've got your Start button back along with the menu and you log in straight to the desktop instead of the Metro interface. From now on it works just like Windows 7.

And about moving options around, just how often do you really change those? If all you do all day is change your prefs, then yes - Windows 8 is not for you. If OTOH you just configure the OS once and forget about it, than finding the settings is not such a big issue, even if they are moved to some other place.

OS X Notifier App Growl Goes Closed Source 270

Posted by timothy
from the what-order-will-emerge? dept.
First time accepted submitter para_droid writes "Version 1.3 of the popular open source notification system for Mac OS X, Growl has surprised its users by going closed-source and only available for purchase on the Mac App Store. Any users who provide links to bugfixes and source for the previous version 1.2 are being banned from the discussion group, and their messages deleted. Could it be time for the community to create an OpenGrowl fork?" The linked post above about bugfixes and source ends "Hopefully the Growl 1.3 branch from the official Growl maintainers will eventually become open source again and get straightened out so that it works for most users, but if it doesn't, a fork of the project will be able to provide a working Growl to Mac users."
