Comment on "Mac OS X is Six Years Old Today"
by Jon H — Mar 24
"Not entirely true; for instance, the core frameworks in OS X sit on top of the C-based CoreFoundation, unlike the original NeXTStep"

True, but then again, CoreFoundation is to some extent a C implementation of the concepts of NeXT's FoundationKit. (I'm sure the scope has grown significantly since development began.)

CoreFoundation wasn't part of MacOS, and if I'm not mistaken it's something of a departure from the style in which MacOS development was done.

There's been a lot of layer blending, but like adding cream to coffee, with classic Mac OS being the cream and NeXTSTEP being the black coffee, the result is still pretty dark.
