I have been listening to this podcast since the first episode and I think it rocks. I am primarily a Linux user and this podcast has made me think about learning the BSDs as well. Still I think the great BSDs are more of geeky stuff.:)

Hi Will, great podcast! I was impressed that you'd heard of Acorn and its application directories (bundles) as prior art for Apple Darwin's bundles. It's mainly a UK based OS so I'm curious to know where you heard of it. Perhaps you've tried the X-Windows desktop based on RISC OS called ROX and ROX-Filer.

Your posting scripts removed the word RISC OS from just after the Acorn in my previous message, and completely missed the closing anchor tag which I know was correct because I double checked it. The previous post contained TWO links:

http://www.riscos.org/

and

http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/about_rox

I daren't wrap those in anchor tags for fear they'll go wrong again.

I read about Acorn and ROX on Wikipedia while researching the bundles.

www.yahoo.com does have a lot of advertising and it can be quite irritating ...solution, use "privoxy" which is in the ports and in pkgsrc
