Wow. Uncle Sam may soon be spending your money on Macs. In a move that completely contradicts the last half decade of accepting Windows hegemony by the Feds, OS X and Linux have been “added”:http://www.fcw.com/fcw/articles/2003/0825/web-trm-08-27-03.asp to OMB’s Technical Reference Model, whatever the hell that is. Inertia will probably protect Microsoft, but hey, at least it’s a step.


I still contend that we’re rapidly approaching an era in which operating system becomes mostly irrelevant. Technologies such as, say “Moveable Type”:http://www.movabletype.org let “worthwhile work”:www.rollerfeet.com/backporchbeer be done regardless of the platform. I’ve posted using almost a half dozen OSes (98, 2000, XP, OS X, Linux) and as many browsers (MSIE, Safari, Opera, Netscape, Mozilla), and it’s worked like a champ every time. I could see similar applications (and I’m sure they’re out there) for about any application you want to use. Don’t matter what piece of hardware I’m using.
