Waste of time
Me personaly, do not see any problems in that OS X is not Unix. The comments about which OS is better are not related to this article. Whether the author tried to explain the same thing - if OS X is not realy Unix so doesn't matter what it is, but for "all" is clear Unix way is better and it's related to Open Source Community, but OS X is not...
It is a wrong way to think so. IMHO.
I don't see any advantages that config files are spreading in /etc and to make localization, for example,
you need not only to set some (quite a lot) variables, but also change init files (apply patches), because
without it you don't get a full functional environment.
Does it mean that it was a gut concept? For me not.
X server? Ha-ha-ha...
Who needs a Graphic Interface thru IP protocol?
May be .1% of all users. Then it is a strange logic
to create concept with meets only small part of user
requirments... But till now we have no complete UTF8
support from box...
So, there are a lot of bad words, which can be said about Linux. So, forget about how OS X is bad.
Think better how we can improve this unix clone.
