Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers

Re: Walled Garden? Linux?

You talk about macOS setting boundaries increasing security for its consumers.

Do you honestly believe a server running macOS (even if you managed to strip out its GUI frills) would be more secure than Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

These three platforms have no artificial boundaries enforced upon their users and yet I suspect they are indeed more secure.

I predict there are more spyware and viruses in the locked down Apple AppStore than in the completely open (and auditable) FreeBSD ports collection.
