Over a 10 year period from 1990 - 2000 only 175 people were killed by airbags while over 28,000 saved lives can be attributed to the addition of the airbag to the seatbelt. There are also a huge amount of people who still think that seatbelts don't apply to them, and an airbag might actually save them. While we could argue for the cleansing of the gene pool, I'll still take those odds.

Submission + - Did Apple Just End the Era of Paid Operating Systems?->

But is it really free? Can you just go get it? With Linux for example, You don't have to go out and buy a "Linux company" hardware box to run it. You can get the OS and install it on your generic hardware. Apple has vigorously fought against installing their OS on non-Apple hardware. If they truly open up Mavericks to all, that will be the true revolution from Apple in this announcement.
