@sjaak327 I only said the word "Start" was no longer on the button, I called it an orb that is left. Here is a link to Microsoft's Vista Press Screenshots:...

@waethorn Some other reasons are, of course, some of the same work Microsoft has done: low number of default process listening to the network, usable standard user accounts, authenticated access to...

@lketchum What do I care if Microsoft allowed Mr. Rashid to continue contributing to the Mach project. Apple the company wasn't using Mach at the time, NEXT was. Apple didn't merge with NEXT until...

@lketchum The point of the Start Menu task-based discussion that began was specifically referencing the word "Start" as the entry point to the menu being so easy to use. It isn't in Vista, isn't in...

@Waethorn Market share is a part of it, but as I suggested, not the only reason. I don't know what you are doing building PCs, you should get a show in Vegas
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 8:28am
@Waethorn Deprecated, but still there and still important.
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 8:23am
@lketchum It doesn't sting that Mr. Rashid was at Carnegie Mellon where the main Mach work was done before he left for MS Research. Your right though, I did confuse the name of the OS X kernel,...

@lketchum The start button was dead in Vista, replaced by the orb. The start menu is just about deprecated in 7, and I wager it's totally gone in the next release. OS X has the Finder, which does...

@ibarskiy Nothing to chill about, just fun to debate, hopefully on the merits. I am really glad these two giant corporations, and soon 3 with Google, are going at it. Results in better products for...

@waethorn It is well documented that Windows home networking, with the mix of TCP/IP standards, WINS, NetBios names, workgroups, and local security has stymied countless users. I have never had to...

@EricoF3 The OS X Kernel is called Darwin, it's open sourced, includes a lot of open source projects, and you can get the code here:...

@RobertC I am not, other's have done this to exhaustion, digging through and trying to align the hardware specs of each PC in those ads and then comparing them to the MacBook lineup and deriving the...

@EricoF3 Windows XP/Vista/7 are based on Windows NT, which was a fork of the IBM OS/2 project, and also integrated lots of architectural ideas from Digital's VMS OS from the mid-70s:...

@aemarques Or Mac shipments are up, if Gartner is right:...

@ibarskiy Again, not a lawyer, but price is a characteristic to me. Again, that is the most important characteristic of the products in the laptop hunter ads. I would actually say price is...
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 6:16am
@waethorn @de Silentio asked a question, I gave my best answer. As for the Apple ads being the same as getting the price wrong, again not a lawyer, but this is a easily verifiable fact of the...
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 6:11am
@RobertC It's really not that hard to understand. The ingredient Apple has that no one else does with all their products has been and always will be their software. If you don't value their software...

@waethorn HAHAHAHAHAHA, that was so funny. Please, keep them coming. Let me help you. Yup, considering how beautiful a cheap PC is, the MacBook Pro is just gross! LOL! ROFL!
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 5:25am
@de Silentio I am not a lawyer, but I think if Apple wanted to they could sue and get a court to order Microsoft to pull the ads immediately or run corrective ads. Microsoft of course would have...
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 5:19am
@ibarskiy You're joking right. Price is the primary characteristic of laptops being compared in all the Laptop Hunter ads. In the one I linked the MacBook Pro price is now grossly wrong, and has been...
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 5:15am
@EricoF3 I didn't say anything about the cost multiple of the the MacBook Pro vs. the PC, I was simply pointing out the truth, which is that the MacBook Pro is now $300 cheaper then what the ad...
Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 5:00am
Assuming even part of what Kevin Turner said is true, that Apple called them, its for an obvious reason. In this Laptop Hunters video, they show a MacBook Pro at $1999:...

Of course he's a Mac user, how else did you think he was able to steal $59 billion by himself? It was all the extra time not lost to Vista ;-)

@mikegalos You have missed my point. OS X's Applications list is the equivalent of the Start Menu's All Programs list, both lists are intended for very less frequently used Applications/Programs,...
Tuesday, January 13, 2009 - 6:20am
@mikegalos OS X's /Applications is not totally flat, I was simplifying it slightly so I didn't bogged down in OS X's implementation and unification of Application launching and their visibility in...

@stimshady I just pinned the Control Panel, its not on the right-click menu for control panel in the Start Menu, only when you are running it (in OS X they call this "Keep in Dock"). I didn't...
Tuesday, January 13, 2009 - 5:48am
The Start Menu should go away, but it probably won't for backward compatibility. Count the clicks. Less clicks == better. In OS X, the Dock is full of what Apple thinks are the most likely...

@mike Understanding and explaning the facts != defense or praise. Since the iPhone SDK launched, 3rd-party apps have not had access to the bluetooth stack or to run in the background. BlueHoo is...

Opera knew before they even got started that their browser was going to get rejected, the SDK terms specifically prohibit implementing your own Javascript interpreter, which is obviously a pre-...
