Rupert Goodwins, ZDNet UK, commentator likens Apple Macintosh to defunct platforms in his latest screed, writing, “It’s easy enough to get a full inbox of scorn in response to a column: all you have to do is insult some obscure, outdated computer architecture such as a BBC Micro, an Acorn Archimedes or the Apple Macintosh.”
We hope he’s talking about the “Classic” Mac OS and not Mac OS X.
Later in the commentary, he asks, “what exactly goes on in Windows when you rename a file and everything goes dead for a second? Why do shortcuts never notice when their main files are moved or deleted? Why did the giant brains at Microsoft design a registry that had no access control and was a half-hearted attempt at a database, despite having all the tools already present in the operating system to have done it properly?”
Now he’s making some sense. Read it all here.
