POSIX is a group of standards that determine a portable API for Unix-like operating systems. Mac OSX is Unix-based (and has been certified as such), and in accordance with this is POSIX compliant. POSIX guarantees that certain system calls will be available.

Essentially, Mac satisfies the API required to be POSIX compliant, which makes it a POSIX OS.

All versions of Linux are not POSIX-compliant. Kernel versions prior to 2.6 were not compliant, and today Linux isn't officially POSIX-compliant because they haven't gone out of their way to get certified (which will likely never happen). Regardless, Linux can be treated as a POSIX system for almost all intents and purposes.

All but one release of Mac OS X (now macOS) has been certified as Unix by The Open Group, starting with 10.5:

10.14 (Mojave)
10.13 (High Sierra)
10.12 (Sierra)
10.11 (El Capitan)
10.10 (Yosemite)
10.9 (Mavericks)
10.8 (Mountain Lion)
10.6 (Snow Leopard)
10.5 (Leopard)
At any given time, Apple's page on The Open Group site only lists the current version of macOS and sometimes the previous version, but all of the links above were at one point found via that page.

OS X's status as a certified Unix is called out in Apple's Unix technology brief, which also has other good technical bits in it that will help you compare it to other UNIX® and Unix-like systems

>> No.68796771

Buy the iMac in that case...
The only thing that apple does really well is their screens...
The mac mini is a laptop minus all the useful parts and my experience is that the motherboard is really crappy on the minis
So the Ram CPU and SSD is working at 15% but the system still lags and takes forever to load stuff.
(The same problem came up in the first run of the dongle-MBP 2016)

Why is the Posix part important to you?
I always find it funny that 9/10 people who brings this up dosent really care about unix or posix.
"Its Unix/POSIX certified!"
"But it doesnt even have a packet manager and the X-window compatibility is really crap!"
"Well i cant use Linux because i only use my computer for the Adobe Suite!"

Get the iMac and pay as much for it as you can , consider the pro one!
Since 9/10 problems with newer Apple products is that they are obsessed with making everything small
consequences be damned, so unless you get the best in the line your machine WILL underperforme.
So unless you are part of the main audience for apple computers: Stay at home moms and bloggers, you will have problems with the lighter versions of their computers.

And last thought you should consider something like Buddhism or Christianity instead of Apple to fill that void.

Good luck anon.

Why would you need a Posix compliant machine for home office?
If the demand really was home office then a Windows based computer would be the only logical system!

And the problem with using older Macs is that you will get pushed out of the supported raster and the "It just werks" no longer apply and i believe that the 2012 models are next and i would guess that they will include the 2013 models there as well.

So if you want the Apple system but cant pay the premium for it. well then your in the wrong market.

They are both very similar. If you get the mac mini, you will have to get the lg ultrafine display, as that is basically the only screen with the right resolution. If you get the imac, you need to make sure the default height isn't too high for you ergonomically as it cannot be adjusted any lower.

Even with a gruesome 100% cpu load on all cores it's able to maintain 3.9GHz TURBO frequency on all cores which is 800MHz above the base. To top if off temps aren't even reaching 85C which is insane for something smaller than a mac mini.

Partly this is due to better cooling but the nuc has a dedicated power brick capable of feeding up to 230 watt peaks of power. The mac mini has an internal PSU that probably suffers from overheating as well

But Macs are still seen as a huge security hazard since Mac users believe that they are invincible and that you cant get viruses on macs.

Macs works really well if you
A: Have a company with employees that are proficient with computers, like Devs and companies like IBM. But in these enviroments you would be just as well of with Linux, BSD or any other modern OS, unless you use Adobe.
B: if you just use your computer all by yourself with no conatac or collab with other people, Writers, bloggers, photography

But Macs has about 2-3% of the enterprise functionallity of Windows.
Macos in the corporate enviroment today is where Windows where with Windows 2000.

Apple doesn’t pretend to be an enterprise services company; it just focuses on making really nice client devices, then partners with the likes of IBM and Cisco to make sure they provide first-class macOS support.

It’s true that AD integration is a bit patchy and requires some finessing, but I’m wondering whether that’s on Apple or if it’s typical Microsoft foot-dragging and sabotage. Office for Mac still lags the Windows version in features and integrates poorly with the Mac look and feel.

>But in these enviroments you would be just as well of with Linux, BSD or any other modern OS

Not true. No other Unix or Unix-like OS has a GUI that is nearly as pleasant to use as macOS’s. It’s in a league of its own.

Less Compatibility
Less Hardware options
Less Scalability
Less support from the company
More expensive
Less third party support
Shorter support cycle
Less competition in the market
A company more prone to take legal action for things like support, refurbish and reselling, repairs and sharing of troubleshooting tools
Has their own proprietary standards making it harder to integrate with other OS:es (Cocoa, BSDP, AppleScript etc)
Less friendly to comapnies that want to partner (VPP)
Less consistant, throwing shit out as they please, Sensor check, CLI to force resolution, the delete key...
Does not take HW problems seriously (Staingate, the butterfly keyboards, Chargers burning, Heatsings that melts the glue that holds the computer together, thermal throtteling in The new MBP i9 almost all models of MB air.)

Since you're both too busy bickering like children I'll chime in with something more useful than a headline.

The "bug" is the Quicklook cache, which stores thumbnails for files on the system. Encrypted drives experience this "bug" because when you mount them they are indexed by Quicklook just like any mounted drive. I put bug in parenthesis because its just Quicklook functioning as intended. You can disable Quicklook caching using "qlmanage", and clear the existing cache as well. The real "bug" is connecting a drive with data worth encrypting to an unencrypted computer and not expecting data leakage.

Windows does the same thing with the thumbsdb or whatever it is called.

tldr, When you decrypt a drive and mount it the OS is going to create thumbnails. Pretty much every consumer-facing OS does this. It's not a bug.

>> No.68800720

As someone who has actually worked with Macs in the enterprise that statement is bullshit. Its about how you work with them. Of course if you pick up a Mac and treat it like a Windows device its going to give you a bad time.

The enterprise functionality is there, just not in a way you recognize. Group Policy? Device Profiles/ MDM. AD? OpenAccess and Kuber.

The real trouble with Mac in the enterprise is Apple's won ton approach to updates and critical bugs. They force you to be running the latest, even if you're not ready. That is what makes them a pain in the ass.

POSIX is a just pay certificate.

OS X is UNIX 03 certified. That's a formalism.
1) That's a nearly 15-year-old standard (03 == 2003). Windows was certified to the predecessor POSIX standard.
2) While certified, it's compliance in actuality is poor. macOS's certified status says more about flaws in the certification test suite and administrative process, and the OpenGroup's need for income, than it does about macOS. The manual page for pselect, for example, even admits that it's not compliant!
FreeBSD, Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD and probably DragonflyBSD are all more compliant in a practical sense than macOS, and much more compliant to the latest specification as they implement all or most of the newly defined interfaces, while macOS implements very few.
That said, yeah, macOS is compliant enough as a practical matter, especially compared to Windows. Porting stuff to macOS is about as painful as porting to Solaris or AIX, which is to say not very painful.
The biggest headaches with macOS are the bugs. For example, last week I was adding support for sendmsg/recvmsg and IP_PKTINFO in my Lua unix module and was able to reliably crash the kernel with a single line of unprivileged code:
I was really confused at first. I had to reboot multiple times before I figured out it was my test code and not my hardware dying. After some Googling I found the above link that verified what I was seeing. This bug was only fixed, AFAIK, in macOS 10.12. (I don't have a 10.11 machine to test.) I was testing the code on 10.10, and as of the latest update a couple of days ago 10.10 is still broken AFAIK.
