Mac Creator Raskin comes down hard on OS X
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "The man responsible for conceiving and implementing the project that delivered the first complete graphical user interface OS to market, Jef Raskin, has recently found himself out of favor in the Mac community, a group that normally includes him with the other apostles that surround the legend of Apple Computer. His crime was referring in an offhand way to OS X as a "throwback" during a recent interview: "Look at OS X, that Apple's coming out with: everybody who works on it says it's a throwback to the 1970s in terms of structure. It's UNIX, it's backwards.""
