What has everyone seen at the kernel level that's new? Apple has forgotten for a long time (according to various Apple "core OS" engineer buddies) that the kernel and core OS innovations are important. We're at a point now where Linux (kernel) has surpassed Apple in this area (as of about 10 years now) and it's caused a lot of us a huge number of problems for a long time now. Apple's got to be brought to realize that we, as users, know what they're doing - the iDevices may make money, but WE use the computers to help them make the money! They've gotta focus on performance and stability at the very core kernel level vs throwing more and more speed at - and they need to still allow us to have flexibility to muck around in and with the kernel and kexts if we want to. I'm hoping all of us can share observations and discoveries from the lower levels of the operating system here.
