Re: Re: Paltalk 9.3 Future


Obviously if you say “Macs suck”, you know nothing about OSX, especially if you are talking about using Linux…in case you didn’t know…

OSX is a highbred Unix/NeXT based on BSD Unix. Underneath the GUI is a complete command line driven *nix backend (yeah, complete with most *nix commands and man pages).

It also comes with Apache pre-configured, and the ability to use PHP, MySQL and other *nix applications out of the box.

The OSX OS can be configured to be in an AD domain, OD (Open Directory) domain and other *nix Directory Services. It can read NTFS out of the box, read/write Fat32, and Apples own HFS+ journaled filesystem. The Apple hardware can boot OSX, a lot of Intel flavors of *nix, and Windows XP/Vista. Apple even provides drivers for the hardware to be used in XP and Vista.

OSX supports a ton of networking protocols just like other Unix flavors and supports ftp, WebDAV, SMB, AFP, SFTP, Telnet, SSH etc etc etc all built in.

The OS GUI is completely based on PDF, so you can create a PDF of any print out from the print dialog (the Print system BTW is based on a licensed version of CUPS).

You get the power of *nix as well as professional standard applications like Photoshop, Adobe Premiere (and other CS3 apps), Microsoft Office (not to mention OpenOffice and other *nix variants), and a ton of professional Apple audio/video applications like Final Cut Pro and the built in apps that come with every Mac – iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie and iDVD….

Now, I am not a programmer, but I AM a power users, and I support 6500 clients (all OSX) as well as 15 servers with raid boxes (also OSX) and Windows clients and servers. Yes, we also have a few Linux servers.

So please, before you spout “Macs suck” how about learning a little…you would be might even (gasp) like it.

And loco…the only mention of it is on the main page, just a snippet at the bottom.

That should be it.
