    A couple of points. Regarding comments/talk backs, here's my
    suggestion, someone moderate them and convert repeated comments
    into links back to the first time they said it.

    I tired to have an open mind about this, but I just don't understand
    how the benefit of the Linux developer community would offset
    Apple's costs to swap out the BSD userland with a Linux. (Or maybe it
    was both BSD and Mach.) There's also the issue of retweaking the
    graphical shell. And tossing over 15 years of expertise going back to
    NeXT. There was some comment about Apple's alienation from GPL,
    but, heavens to murgatroid, the compiler is gcc! To be clear about
    this, I am not knocking Linux. For some of the things I use, java and
    Haskell, Linux has better apps, but I don't think it's the GPL that
    makes the difference there. As I said I don't see why it should sound
    like a good idea to Apple and I don't see how it would improve my
    Mac usage.
