Apple courts *nix fans


— 4:19 AM on October 11, 2002

Apple is preaching a different kind of "/switch" at the Linux Expo UK, they're trying to woo *nix fans to OS X. The message here seems to be that OS X is perfect for *nix fans because of its Unix roots, but many of Apple's attitudes don't jive with open source ideals. Still, Apple laptops are apparently proving popular at Linux trade shows, which makes me wonder if the appeal has more to do with sticking it to the Wintel world more than anything. The enemy of your enemy is your friend, right?
