Right... Then you should be happy that you can still sell your Mac for some $$ which will cover your next windows laptop.
Whereas many of the Apple fans, old and new, seem to like the way Apple/OS X works over both Linux and Windows.
It's not as if there's no cheap(er) Windows options out there, or more expensive Windows options out there. How come Apple's marketshare is growing YoY, especially in face of declining marketshare among general PC vendors.
And on top of that, the user satisfaction ratings are through the roof (heck, the iPad had a higher approval rating than Samsung's tablet *IN* South Korea last year).
It would appear that their choices are in alignment with their users more than anyone else.
But wait, I thought OP's stance was that Apple uses bog standard parts. Now you're claiming Apple use proprietary parts.
Which is it?!?!
No no, this could turn out to be an HaterGate. Please do not try to bring facts into it! Let people who don't even use OS X come in and rant about the poor choices Apple consistently makes.
So, how many systems do you manage where SELinux is actually in use, and by that, I do not mean enabled with a "allow all".
You are missing a sarcasm tag, hopefully.
Without fixing your congress critters, how do you plan to get to your nirvana?
Yes you are defending them.
Sure. But, encryption of in-flight and at-rest data thwarts both passive and dragnet surveillance. This is *exactly* the thing that we've been screaming about for the past year or so.
Uh, no. What has been screamed about is that meta data collection is happening on a broad scale
Methinks someone doesn't understand what dragnet means.
They never had the keys in the first place. What they have done is to enable more things to be covered by encryption.
Reading's over rated if all OP wanted to do was rant and dump on Linux...
You don't know how long a pop up window is active without a key logger? You kidding me?
My god, how do people even make excuses for shit like this?!
You do realize their implementation of PHP is the only secure form of PHP out there? The one they released as a virtual machine?
Are you fucking shitting me? It's an open source license. That means you can fork it at will if they screw with the license. Is this what passes for critical thinking around here, or is it just bash anything at will?
Speak for yourself. Some of these are of interest to me and my company.
