GNOME Creator Ditches Linux For Mac

Miguel de Icaza

To me, the fragmentation of Linux as a platform, the multiple incompatible distros, and the incompatibilities across versions of the same distro were my Three Mile Island/Chernobyl.

Without noticing, I stopped turning on the screen for my Linux machine during 2012. By the time I moved to a new apartment in October of 2012, I did not even bother plugging the machine back and to this date, I have yet to turn it on.

Even during all of my dogfooding and Linux advocacy days, whenever I had to recommend recommended a computer to a single new user, I recommended a Mac. And whenever I gave away computer gifts to friends and family, it was always a Mac. Linux just never managed to cross the desktop chasm.

BlueStacks now lets you run every Android app on Mac as it moves to beta

This app lets you run Android apps on your Mac (has been available for Windows for a while). Don’t know why, but, there you go.

When I first heard the name “Safari”

Don Melton, Retired Apple Engineer recalls the process of selecting the name for the Mac Browser.

I don’t recall all the names, but one that stands out is “Freedom.” Steve spent some time trying that one out on all of us. He may have liked it because it invoked positive imagery of people being set free.

Of course, all I could think about was, “Please don’t let us name the browser after a feminine hygiene product!”

Go to his blog and read the entire thing, very interesting.
