As I said, last I knew, not it is this. From what I read it was, this is why Darwin code its available but why it can't be compiled into a working OS because only what its needed to be open sourced is.

Now, instead of acting like a little bitch, could you stop swearing at me and explain the differences and why Darwin is open sourced but not complete? Or do you have no idea? I took a quick look at the BSD license before my last response and from what I read, it works pretty much the same as GPL.

You deserve to get heat for not even bothering to look on Wikipedia.

You can compile the Darwin code to a working OS, but that OS is not MacOS. It's the plumbing that's underneath MacOS. Any POSIX compliant code should compile and run on the Darwin that Apple releases. As the code has a BSD heritage, Apple is under no obligation to release the code. That's why they've relicensed it as Apple Public Source License, which is a FSF approved but GPL incompatible license.

By saying you think the BSD and GPL licenses are similar, it sounds like you're trolling. The BSD says "here's the code, do whatever you want with it" whereas the GPL says "here's the code, if you distribute modifications you must also distribute the source code for those modifications".

I went and looked up BSD licenses http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BSD_licenses

Two variants of the license, the New BSD License/Modified BSD License,[1] and the Simplified BSD License/FreeBSD License[2] have been verified as GPL-compatible free software licenses by the Free Software Foundation, and have been vetted as open source licenses by the Open Source Initiative

Reading this gave me the belief that the BSD that it was similar enough to merit my statement.

You've been told that you are wrong and yet you insist on pulling facts out ass?
The GPL is not the same as the BSD, and that is why Apple went with the BSD one. It suited them better.

But in the end, it's only a matter of time before Valve just releases some steam box that runs a closed Linux distro, completing the circle of hypocrisy.

No, the GPL is specifically designed to prevent this.

May I show you OSX and iOS?

While I'm not saying that Valve will make a closed Linux box, claiming that something like the GPL will prevent them is very naive. Apple took the open Mach Kernel and BSD codes and locked them down, only keep as much open as they legally had to.

Somebody doesn't know the difference between the GPL and BSD license. You can close BSD code, but not GPL ... well, unless you are willing to risk a lawsuit.

Last I knew, the BSD is GPL. And thats why Darwin is "open source" because its the part Apple legally needs to keep open. Everything else they tack on to it on the other hand isn't GPL.

So Apple is using the base engine and keeping it as open as needed, every little modification and screw change they do, they don't open up because they don't need to legal. The GPL doesn't cover that

Can't wait until my nexus 10 arrives. I want the nexus 4 but can't afford it at the moment. No lte for it did worry me until i realized that wireless data costs a fortune in Canada and i only have 500 a month, wifi most of the time so it wouldn't effect me much. The speed boost wouldn't effect my email and messaging program enough to care

Reminds me of Phantasy Star Online for the Dreamcast. The original version was free to play and was used to help sell it. Problem came up later with someone finding out a code for the Tiger Shark That would let you delete others characters in mid session. Needless to say, this killed online play and helped tank sales (they later repackaged it with extra modes and items and resold it with a fee to play online to help prevent against these problems again)

From what I understand, the problem isn't if the country is becoming socialist and if that's a bad thing but more that the county Is now less and less of a capitalist national and more of a crony capitalist nation.

And crony capitalism is nothing like capitalism and will kill a nation and everything the USA ever stood for.

While this will seem like an anti-Apple rant, you have to realize that from what i recall, Apple was the biggest pusher to make it illegal to jail break smartphones. And so its things like this you have to consider when you buy stuff. Not only are you buying a device that you say has the ideals you want to support, but the companies actions you support as well. Something to consider the next time you look at devices to buy.

Better then Apple polices that change on the drop of a hat.

"Your app is approved." fix a bug but change nothing of the real game "Your app is denied for violating our polices"

Isnt it wonderful when people compare arbitrary restrictive policies of two corporate entities and then declare that one is 'better' than the other???

While both are evil, I feel that clear rules are better then off/on rules. But yeah, its not good either way.

Well facts are facts looks up android audio latency problems for DAW software and then compare specs. It's lighter with a bigger screen and will support faster audio latency for DAW's. I'm pissed my nexus 7's Tegra underperforms along with bad latency. I would kill for nanostudio on android.

You guys should really see how over zealous you react. Who
Cares I'd you guys don't like apple, just ignore the posts instead of trolling. I'm simply just stating that it factually weighs less and has a reasonable price point considering apples butt tax.

Look I'm not buying a mini but i would like to see your nexus rom that runs NOVA or any other intensive title smoothly. Instead of generic "hardcore pc gamer apple hate rhetoric".

I like OSx, Linux and windows. Nothing is the best, by some handle things better than others and in this case the android platform doesn't give a fuck about music production and or handling the audio latency issue.

I know you guys don't care but its also cus my problems aren't your problems, so you naturally won't care

More its the fact I was right. You aren't running stock and so your having problems. This is what I said, your making up problems or have a bad ROM.

Once you said you had overclocked it I knew something was wrong. Many of these devices don't like being overclocked and have problems when you do. You also said that the iPad is faster, your literally the first person/review that has said this since all the spec's say the exact opposite.

You also say there are zero music apps on Android.

My Piano
DJ Studio 3
DJ Control

But please insist that there are none and that by putting on a possible unstable mod that you refuse to show (you even got called on that part) that the stock ROM is bad, and that we are trolling you...

You'll be flamed for trolling. Part of the thing is either your out right making thing up... or you have a really bad ROM. You should restore it back to the factory ROM and try again

Removed to prevent offending to Muslim gamers?

Your censoring/removing all existence/mentioning of a religion, I feel this is the most offensive part.

"You acknowledge a religion" "Oh sorry, we will remove all existence of it so people won't ever see that it exists, that will help the religions followers feel like that aren't being offended"

Apple did the same exact thing by railing about the Google Nexus. Where are the "Apple is Freaked Out By the Google Nexus" articles?

Many news sites are heavily pro-apple because they find it gets them more clicks which in turn gets them more money.

These sites love to claim that the iPhone is king and yet its market share has peaked a while ago and from what I've seen has been slowly dropping with the articles that do mention how many people are using iPhones.

Same goes with the iPad. "Apple sold 54% of the tablet market showing customers love the iPad." Not really since the lions share are sold at a discount to places like schools (that give them to the students or colleges to their students as part of their course, jno opting out of the iPad or getting an Android tablet instead). These things really skew the numbers because it shows iPads selling but these weren't sold to people who had a choice and in turn didn't vote with their wallets. So while 54% were iPads and over 40% were Android tablets, the lions share of the Android tablets were bought by those who had a choice and show that, yes, people prefer Android tablets because they had the choice to vote with their wallet and choose Android over iPads.

I don't have any tablet, but I'm thinking of checking out the iPad 4 to maybe get as a portable gaming handheld. Specs seem to be pretty powerful now with A6X. So is it a good platform for gaming?

Bit heavy for extended usage for gaming. You'd be better off with a smaller/lighter tablet like the Nexus 7, or if you must have an iOS a iPad Mini.

Remember, its light in the beginning but give it some time, like 10+ minutes and you'll start to see that it's heavier then you first thought.

Apple fans are never irked at new stuff. Many/most of them rush to buy the next gen even if they bought theirs a couple months ago. Which is why apple releases new gens so fast after all. They make piles of money doing it.
That same thing can be said about Android fans also. How often does a new Android tablet come out like every 3-4 months or less?

Nexus models are one year apart, and don't have Apples history of one refresh every year for thirty years. When you have this long of a history of one year refreshes (maybe pushed a month or three back) is one thing, suddenly six-seven months later is a different. I know my friend would have just waited for this iPad instead of getting his three months ago.
