Apple: A Bigger Open Source Enemy Than Microsoft?

http://www.workswithu.com

What amazes me is Apple’s track record for openness is even worse than Microsoft’s.

Why I Choose Linux

http://www.tuxmachines.org

I never liked Windows. My Apple II+, which didn't have a hard drive and had only 48 Kilobytes of RAM, was a dinosaur by comparison to my first Windows machine but the Apple was an old friend who I understood and spent hundreds of pleasurable hours learning how to use.

Apple has decided to block streaming content from http://apple.com/trailers/ for Linux users. I say this because tonight I went to view a few of the upcoming movie trailers and was told to "Get the Latest Quicktime" in order to watch and I was denied the ability to watch them.

Linux on a Macintosh

http://www.tuxation.com

Since Apple introduced the Intel chip in their Macintosh computers, people have been using this technology to run other software that they would normally run on their PCs, such as Windows or various blends of *nix. Because of their specialized hardware, Macs present somewhat of a challenge to get a PC operating system that would run without a hitch on a normal PC computer, running on an Intel Mac. This guide aims to highlight, avoid and deal with main complications that arise when running (or trying to run) Linux on a Macintosh.

http://fakelinustorvalds.wordpress.com

See, it’s kinda like in Star Wars. We’ve got the evil bad guys, the Microsoft people (did I just classify the Microsoftans as human?). They’re a wealthy organization that wants to rule the galaxy. Then there’s the Apple… individuals. They’re a bunch of people obsessed with being perfect and with white cases. They’re the Empire, and they’re even worse than the Federation.

Stupid Apple Patents

http://aseigo.blogspot.com

I've run into a few Apple UI patents a over the years while developing software. Their software patents, like most other software patents, tend to be completely inane. They are the sort of things that are obvious to pretty much anyone doing UI development who isn't stuck thinking "WIMP, WIMP, WIMP".
