Comment Re:So this is Slashdot under new management? (Score 1) 168

Seriously ... And oh, how the tides have turned.

I had the first submission that kicked off '' about, oh, 15 years ago now? How exciting things were then.

None of the Apple hate. Mac OS X was just getting started, and had so much potential.

Let's not forget how revolutionary it really was. The real UNIX for the desktop. Good stuff.

Part of me misses the simplicity of PowerBook Titaniums and iPods with scroll wheels.

Comment First install (Score 1) 284

First (and only) install was a Chicago beta ... I was working as a Banyan VINES administrator at the time and needed to test the VINES client under the upcoming W95.

At home, I used OS/2.

At work, I switched to a SPARCstation.

Tells you what I thought of W95 and Microsoft.

Sound policy that I still follow today.

Comment Now compare this to Apple's approach (Score 4, Informative) 66

I know that it's all the rage to crap on Apple, but compare this "approach" to security vs Apple's approach ...

Apple isn't perfect by any means but at least they put the time and energy into actually trying to do the right things. They make mistakes - like everyone else - but at least there's some forethought.
