I think it's interesting that an old bug is actually news on something that affects OS X. How many of these do you think there are in Windows?

I often compare Windows to the North Korean missile development program- they start with a crappy base, and then build a second level on top, calling it new. Then another level, and another level, on top of the same terrible base, which never gets rewritten completely.
