Steve Jobs

I don't know what to say so here are some random thoughts.

My second computer was the Apple IIe.

When I first saw a Macintosh, I didn't understand how to use it.

Scrapping the proprietary "classic Mac OS" kernel for a BSD/mach hybrid was pure genius.

I roll my eyes at people who say Apple takes from the open source and gives nothing back.

I've done the same to people who always said that Aqua was nothing but eye candy.

I now rely heavily on Mac OS in my job and personal life.

I don't see that changing in the new future.

99% of this is the work of one man.

    ever thought of adding a bbs to this site? There are several interesting discussions cluttered in several comments of different postings. Disqus helps a little bit, but not so much...
