This is something I heard in macintosh computer club
and had little more than hearsay to support my allegation.
I should have checked.
I googled vista unix and immediately came up with a hit "Is vista unix
which embarrassed me for swallowing hearsay whole.
My computer internet is slow now
since I am downloading 15.46MB from Einstein@home and have 23 of 24 items
of this page showing "forever" it seems.
The google hit list came up faster and I read that vista was more unix
The entendre of the question, "Is vista unix based?", on a macintosh forum
strongly evidences a memory I have that os x is unix based
and that they are making a comparison of the long awaited vista
which in my crowd is alleged to imitate os x features.
I am not an expert in windows stuff, I only wanted to afford hope
that with vista we are on the same page running the squeak virtual machine
which makes all platforms alike.
