OS X made apple relevant again by the return of the NeXT people. There was a software revolution going on at apple, the old 68000/ppc people were being pushed out by these Unix PowerPC/i386/SPARC/HPPA/M88k people....
It was a major shift and he wasn't part of it.
worse he was on he loosing side anyways...
trying to be all OSX/i OS was an attempt to stay apple relevant. but his larger fear of success stops him from shipping anything anyways. He wont work with others, is a recluse but he's no Richard Stallman producing 100,000's of lines of usable code over a month, and he's a terrible evanglist like our Jaggermeister friend....
Instead he found a niche with GDB stepping through shite. But his gravitation to firewire & powerpc, the religion of the old/dead apple has driven him out.
