I honestly think a working version of linux is worth money.

>> No.26093790

Technically, its Unix, but its essentially the same.

Personal preference?

I thought OSX was basically BSD

i's not UNIX it's BSD you fucking retard. Yes, there is a massive difference

OS X is UNIX not a poorly implemented clone.

If you want to use mac osx.

Hackintosh is the only answer.

Leopard is certified UNIX '03.

The mac pro and some of their laptops are, but not all of it is terrible. Just my two cents.

All apple hardware is overpriced. This is a well know fact.

>OS X, formerly Mac OS X, is a series of Unix-based graphical interface operating systems developed, marketed and sold by Apple Inc.
>OS X is a UNIX-like operating system that originally ran on PowerPC-based Macs. In 2006, the first Intel Macs had a specialized version of Mac OS X v10.4 "Tiger". in 2007, Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard",[4] was the first to have UNIX 03 certification and run on both PowerPC and Intel Macs with the use of Universal Binaries.

iOS is BSD. OS X is Unix.

>and Windows

>> No.26096000

Well, there are layers available that make it compliant.

But if you use the POSIX defined APIs to make a temp file in Windows it will stash it in C:\, which is idiotic.
(The Windows API has no such defects however.)

>> No.26096001

OS X is unix, but uses BSD software as an equivalent for busybox

if you man page any common busybox program on os x you can see the licensing is BSD because of what the BSD license is

>> No.26096015


They're all layers. Windows itself is not POSIX-compliant.

terrible touchpad, which is rather important

>> No.26096429

A bit cheaper, at the cost of slightly worse battery life and a godawful trackpad.

Whether or not you see those as deciding factors is another thing entirely, but personally, the trackpad alone is a dealbreaker.

>> No.26096572

From trying it out at the store, I think it's quite good for a non-Apple laptop. Maybe I didn't try it enough it real world application. Trackpads are indeed a deal breaker for me. I'm very picky about choosing laptop. I have absolutely no regrets about returning an $800 HP laptop 3yrs ago for a $1300 Macbook to have a better trackpad...and not use Vista.
