Submission + - Linus pans OSX, HFS+

CurlyG writes: Apple's much-touted new operating system, OS X Leopard, is in some ways worse that Windows Vista, says the founder of the Linux open source project, Linus Torvalds. Torvalds was in Melbourne last week for the conference and was invited to pass judgement on OS X versus Windows Vista in a wide-ranging interview. "I don't think they're equally flawed — I think Leopard is a much better system," he said. "(But) OS X in some ways is actually worse than Windows to program for. Their file system is complete and utter crap, which is scary."
