What Happens?

If you ever consider using an Apple platform.

Get It

Try It

What happens if you download a file - any file - onto Apple's OS?

This happens.

Your file gets clobbered with a full half dozen extended attributes.

Of course Apple's fanboys don't object. Because they don't see it. They could see it if they wanted, but they don't want to, so they don't. Their systems can be shit, but they think life is grand.

We actually got a letter from an Apple fanboy, still working at Apple today, originally from Canada and working for Corel back in the day, and he sincerely asked 'why bother - that's invisible, isn't it?'

If you ever consider using an Apple platform, keep this in mind.
