Comment on "Mac OS X is Six Years Old Today"
by David Weiss — Mar 24
Calling Mac OS X the basis for the look of Web 2.0 is a stretch IMHO.

Moving to a UNIX based OS with the Cocoa APIs wasn't so much about building a platform for developers as it was about helping Apple innovate faster, and boy has that worked.

When Apple released Mac OS X 10.0 all the geeks called it slow and CPU cycles wasted on eye candy. Back then no one knew how very valuable eye candy would be.

Apple is an example to us all of 1) having a plan, 2) sticking to a plan and 3) having the courage to be imperfect.
