踩着eWeek的蓝色绒面革鞋

这是万博manbetx贴吧的废话检测周。

接下来我们的名单是eWeek的“独家新闻”声称在接下来的三周内,Apple将向Jaguar发布10.2.2更新,其中包括一个代号为“Elvis”的日志文件系统。

请允许我反对这个故事在其他地方的rah-rah报道因为我不相信。

免责声明:我在Apple中没有任何来源我也没有10.2.2的beta版除了我自己的猜测,我什么都没有但是如果我错了,并且在几周内出现了带有日志文件系统的10.2.2,我就会在这里吃一些乌鸦。

来自文章:

The journaled file system, which will run atop the Mac’s traditional HFS file scheme, will be switched off by default; users will be able to switch it on via the command line, sources said他们报告称,虽然Elvis在后台运行,但启用日志文件系统会使当前系统性能降低10%至15%。

这毫无意义没有。

HFS +和UFS是两个文件系统,均受Mac OS X支持这两个日志文件系统都不是(也不是“文件方案”,无论是什么。)你不能只是把HFS +变成一个带有神奇的小精灵尘埃层的日志文件系统要将磁盘从一个文件系统更改为另一个文件系统,您需要重新格式化它eWeek简单地声称是不可能的。

日记文件系统不会简单地编写包含所有日记信息的单个“日志”文件日记文件系统的重点是日志数据是格式本身的基本部分。

文章继续说:

事实上,Apple显然已经为其Elvis项目招募了Be技术的创造者:Be的BFS日志文件系统由Dominic Giampaolo编写,他于3月加入Apple担任文件系统工程师,The Register UK报道。

这绝对是真的Apple聘请了Dominic Giampaolo而且,Giampaolo主要负责BeOS的日志文件系统他很可能正在为Apple的日志文件系统工作但是,如果出现这样的日志文件系统,根据定义,它将是一个文件系统。

苹果公司在微小的操作系统更新中首次推出全新的文件系统也不合理Since 1984, there have been a grand total of three new Macintosh disk formats: the original Macintosh File System (MFS) in 1984, the Hierarchical File System (HFS) that debuted with System 3.0 in 1986, and HFS Extended (HFS+), which debuted in Mac OS 8.1并且不要让“.1”欺骗你,Mac OS 8.1是一个重大更新(谢谢MacKiDo对于历史数据。)

跟踪记录

合着者Matthew Rothenberg在他的谣言中有着可怕的记录,该文章的另一篇文章属于Nick de Plume,这是一个很少准确的假冒作者想想秘密

10月5日的问题MWJaddressed Rothenberg’s recent crowing over Apple confirming his previous “scoop” about future Macs no longer booting into Mac OS 9正如MWJ指出的那样,他没有这样做。

发生了什么事是eWeek发表了一个题为“苹果在Mac OS 9上大满贯“由Rothenberg于8月2日发表在那个故事中,他写道:

消息人士表示,对台式机和便携式计算机的Macintosh系列中的新型号进行调整将阻止启动到Mac OS 9,将基于Unix的Mac OS X作为唯一的操作系统。

消息人士表示,Mac OS X-only政策可能会通过Pinot的软件功能实施,这是继捷豹(Mac OS X 10.2)之后的下一个主要Mac OS X更新,苹果公司表示将在8月发布24苹果最有可能在1月份的Macworld Expo /旧金山举行此举。

请注意,该文章声称这些新Mac可以启动到OS 9,但Apple将使用“调整”来阻止他们这样做。

我会让MWJ从这里拿走它:

Of course, Apple did announce it would make new machines that don’t boot into Mac OS 9, but eWEEK’s details appear substantially wrongThe story describes machines that could boot into Mac OS 9 but are prevented from doing so via a “tweak” or software update, and there’s no available evidence to support thatAs MWJ pointed out at the time, a far more plausible explanation is that Apple will finally advance the motherboard to include new technologies that Apple doesn’t want to support in native Mac OS 9, such as faster FireWire, USB, AGP, or even HyperTransport (MWJ 2002.09.18)Turner and Rothenberg’s own article goes to show why disabling Mac OS 9 booting for non-technical reasons is ridiculous: large customers are already saying they won’t purchase those machinesApple is not in a position to turn away eager Power Macintosh customers in a slow technology economy.

However, since the article, eWEEK has published at least three more crowing about how Apple’s announcement “confirmed a recent eWEEK report.” The original article was modified to link to a新故事“in which Apple confirms its plans,” and that story spends its first two paragraphs talking about how Apple was just confirming what eWEEK had already reported — even though Apple did no such thingA 2002.09.16 Rothenberg column boldly crows about the “scoop”, saying, “I hate to say it, but we told you so,” and “I’m delighted to note that Daniel Drew Turner and I were on the money back at the beginning of August, when we first flagged Apple’s next major step to close the book on Mac OS 9.”

[...]

Rothenberg, who formerly wrote MacWEEK.com’s “Mac the Knife” column, tends to get onto these rumors and hold them for years, including the “Apple’s about to dump the PowerPC” and “handwriting recognition is the wave of the future” memes.

To an extent, this is harmless braggadocio, but eWEEK is starting to change thatThe site, and more specifically, Rothenberg, are linking to the “confirmed” report about booting into Mac OS 9 at every opportunity to lend credibility to other rumors that even the Knife likely wouldn’t have gotten into print.

[我以前从未见过Rothenberg被命名为MacWeek.com的Mac the Knife现在那是我称之为独家新闻如果你是麦克风书呆子并且不订阅MWJ,那么你应该]

我在明尼阿波利斯的一家K-Mart看到猫王

在日记文件系统文章的底部附近,他们声明:

据报道,苹果本月早些时候向开发者播放了预发布版本,减去了猫王的增强功能。

What sense does this make? Yes, the new Apple is secretive about future productsBut what good would it do to seed a version of OS X designed to run under a new file system without the actual file system? If it were true that 10.2.2 is going to offer a journaling file system, wouldn’t that be the feature需要进行广泛测试?

如果苹果公司发送测试种子,而不是他们想要保密的秘密新组件,那就不足为奇了比如说,一个新的iApp应用程序可以与操作系统本身分开测试,通常不会产生系统范围的影响但是,新的文件系统将构成对操作系统本身核心的重大改变,并将影响计算机上每个文件的完整性。

我猜到将会发生什么:

  1. Mac OS X 10.2.2确实会在一两个月内发布。
  2. 它不包含日记文件系统。
  3. Rothenberg将声称他是对的,但苹果公司高管在最后一刻撤销了这项新功能,(a)等待1月份的Macworld Expo,或者(b)等待下一次付费更新到Mac OS X.
  4. 相信eWeek的人会非常失望,有些人会误导他们的失望苹果据我所知,这家公司还没有就日记文件系统说一句话。

而且我的建议是不要相信那些没有归因于引用或可靠屏幕截图的谣言。
