Poll Preview: The Benefits of Unix

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: The Benefits of Unix -- Last week's article by Chris Pepper - and this week's concluding article - highlight the Unix underpinnings of Mac OS X, as well as how they relate to what we'll see on our Macintosh screens and to the rest of the Unix community. However, moving from a proprietary operating system (the existing Mac OS) to a Unix-based operating system is a major move for Apple, and we're curious much you think this change will impact you when Mac OS X ships next year. Will Mac OS X offer the best of both worlds for you - the power of Unix with the ease of the Macintosh? Do you think you'll mainly use Mac OS X software, but occasionally delve into Unix? Does Unix benefit you indirectly through increased stability, protected memory, and improved performance? Or is Mac OS X's Unix core a major problem for you because hardware or software you require may not be compatible with Mac OS X or accessible from the Classic Mac OS environment?
