Mac vs. Windows gets bloody

Mac Halo 1.03 Updater Mirrors

When Halo for the Mac shipped, it was already a version behind the Windows code, which was at version 1.03. Now the Mac version of 1.03 is available.

The good news: Mac players now can get into multiplayer games with Windows players, which means you're more likely to find a game you'll like, and you're more likely to find a game with low latency. I like the multiplayer better than I did before, and can't tell any significant difference in the single-player game.

The bad news: Version 1.03 now requires a CD in the drive to play.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Mac vs. Windows gets bloody:


MICROSOFT Web Site Link - Windows History Timeline - It appears Windows XP comes from Windows 2000 and Windows ME and DOS per their website? But they leave quite a few things out?

When you look at the history of Windows, starting with Windows on top of DOS in 1981 and going forward to XP in 2001 you have to end up with some spaghetti code. It appears Windows is a collection of everything from DOS, to DEC Basic, VMS, RSX-11, to Windows, to the Macintosh? To OS/2, and who knows what? It is no wonder there is a millions lines of code that cannot be fixed.

There are over 45 millions lines of code that Microsoft cannot fix in XP?
