ClamAV For Windows Open Beta Begins

kc0re Re:What is the Immunet product and why should we r (127 comments)

Immunet is a lightweight client that runs on the Desktop, the AV is done "in the cloud" as opposed to running a gigantic fat client and downloading daily updates. As a result, it's faster, adapts faster, and allows for worldwide correlation.

Psystar Claims Apple Forgot To Copyright Mac OS

kc0re Re:Seriously?!? (648 comments)

It's illegal for them to do this, IMO. And I am not a lawyer, however, if someone wants to buy a computer from Psystar, then go buy OSX Leopard and install OSX Leopard on the computer, that's the users's prerogative. The problem comes up when Psystar is installing the OS on the machine and selling it. That's the illegal part. I guess?

Psystar Claims Apple Forgot To Copyright Mac OS

kc0re Re:Berne convention? (648 comments)

I wonder if Apple could argue that this is the same line of code. Just upgraded.

Psystar Claims Apple Forgot To Copyright Mac OS

kc0re Re:Berne convention? (648 comments)

Being Pedantic -- OSX is Darwin. Darwin is Apple developed code based on Nextstep, FreeBSD, and OpenStep. When Apple bought OpenStep (which was NextStep), they developed an OS named Rhapsody. Rhapsody was forked into Darwin. Darwin is the basis of OSX. The major difference in all is the Mach kernel.

Psystar Claims Apple Forgot To Copyright Mac OS

kc0re Re:Berne convention? (648 comments)

I think they only did that with 10.3, I had the same problem going from 10.2 to 10.3. But after 10.3, they have been full install disks. On the other hand, we were installing them on Apple Hardware, right? Which means that if the "original media" is OSX based hardware, Apple *could* claim that the disks were "upgrades"? I'm not a lawyer, and don't pretend to play one.

Jobs Not Giving This Year's Macworld Keynote

kc0re Re:Look, really? (371 comments)

I am by far one of the biggest Apple fanboys in the world. I've checked into a home, and am getting recovery. (As I type this on my MBP) - Anyway... We have to face reality at some point. Hopefully not anytime soon.

kc0re Re:iPod, iPhone, then what? (371 comments)

Well, you ASSUME they aren't listening to their "market segment". How do you know they aren't developing these things? There are entire websites dedicated to saying "please apple?" http://www.dearcupertino.com/ being one.

Jobs Not Giving This Year's Macworld Keynote

kc0re Look, really? (371 comments)

We know Steve is going to die, someday. As much as we'd probably like to put him in some cryogenic container, thaw him out every few years when products start to suck ass -- we know he's going do die AT SOME POINT. Why is this blowing up to be such a freakish crazy thing? So he's turning over the keynotes to someone else!? How about he's turning THIS one over to someone else. Will he still headline his own events, that Apple throws? Probably. How about WWDC? Come on. I don't blame them for pulling out of macworld: http://www.joelesler.net/finshake/Blog/Entries/2008/12/16_Apple_pulls_out_of_MacWorld%2C_OH_NOEZ.html But CNBC said it best, IMO: http://www.cnbc.com/id/28265938
