apples and oranges
Authored by: rgray on Jun 23, '04 10:19:02AM

This list compares oranges and apples... Protected memory, stability and multitasking are direct consequences of the UNIX core. The scores for those should be added to the UNIX score which would make the UNIX score overwelming. Which is as it should be. The other items are 'features' (all of which have homologues in the GNU/UNIX world) - without UNIX it'd pretty much be OS9..

My wording probably wasn't the best -- Unix core was meant to mean "the ability to install and use Unix programs alongside the GUI," versus the other things which (I agree) are definitely related to having Unix at the heart of the OS...
