    Apparently the future of "real Unix" is only being able to use the built-in GPU, and that GPU that's notably weaker than the competition and incapable of features that other GPUs have had for years.

      GPUs are for children though. We’re talking real Unix here, go back to playing Fortnite.

        I'm taking the bait to say this:
        This type of retardness is common on LULZ. Newfags, beware of his and others' stupidity.

    >grand central dispatch
    This is why Applel just cant name projects. Absolute cringe.

      they changed it and the new gcd is essentially apple only but you can use the old one still to this day to produce binaries which will assess the SIMD capabilities of GPUs and CPUs and automatically make the code "go" on all of them for max perfs.

      It's brilliant. You can use GCD's abstractions and it will deploy anywhere and automagically use all available vector processing units.

          apple changed grand central dispatch, but the old version is still "good" and fully cross platform for accelerating maths using whatever hardware the computer running the program has, because it's all abstracted

        what?
        https://github.com/apple/swift-corelibs-libdispatch/blob/main/INSTALL.md
        >freebsd
        >linux
        if they make apple-only gcd, they break all swift crossplatform support since swift multithreading is gcd based

    Back when companies cared about real Unix it basically meant you bought a license from AT&T or descended from Berkeley Unix, which was a 100% rewrite as courts eventually found. Later on the Open Group would "bless" your Unix as Unix if you underwent some, apparently largely POSIX-derived stress test. But this didn't even guarantee source compatibility until the SUS or Single Unix Specification came later. By that time Linux was the de-facto Unix with the BSDs in close second, and the proprietary Unix OS's were on the wane. These days, correct me if I'm wrong, but these days there are only about three or four closed source Unixes. Solaris, AIX, AT&T's Unix 11th edition which is used in the phone system and has NEVER been public. And maybe one other which I feel I'm forgetting. But Unix is Linux + BSD now.

    What's the fucking deal with Unix? why does everyone suck it's cock I don't understand

      Source code can be looked at and used.
      It has offshoots such as NetBSD/OpenBSD and FreeBSD which have exceptionally permissive licenses and are open for anyone to use.
      This has caused companies such as Apple and Sony to use the code from the above projects extensively in their commercial ventures.

    Real actual Unix is a buggy usability nightmare, so much so that people would install GNU shit on proprietary Unix flavors because it was a huge improvement.

    "Certified" "Unix" is meaningless.

      Bullshit. Maybe on old versions, but anything past 5 is better.
