C++ portability guide

What follows is a set of rules, guidelines, and tips that we have found to be useful in making C++ code portable across many machines and compilers. This information is the result of porting large amounts of code across about 25 different machines, and at least a dozen different C++ compilers. Some of these things will frustrate you and make you want to throw your hands up and say, ``well, that's just a stupid compiler if it doesn't do .'' But this is the reality of portable code. If you play by the rules, your code will seamlessly work on all of the Mozilla platforms and will be easy to port to newer machines. We will endeavor to keep the information up to date (for example, sometimes a new compiler revision will lift a restriction). If you have updates on any of these tips, more information, more ideas, please forward them to Christopher Blizzard, Scott Collins, or David Baron. Read More ...

Apple's move to Intel

Steve Jobs' announcement Monday will be analyzed to death by the likes of me and every technology watcher and blogger out there.
Most of the analysis will focus on the future of Apple and whether this Intel decision is a benefit or a disaster.
I'm on the side of benefit as Apple can now champion its design and aesthetic strategies in the world of Intel and allow people who prefer the Windows OS to actually buy a Macintosh for its design and run Windows on it. Nobody in the Mac community would suspect this, of course, but it is one of many foreseeable but unintended consequences of this announcement.
