VISTA and OS X are not the same. 2847
Mmmm, no. Well, perhaps in total lines of code, but not proportionally.
7.0 was a ground-up rewrite from scratch. I had a beta release of it which had an interesting bug: I had a folder window in Icon view, with about a dozen icons. I drag-clicked the mouse around them to highlight them all, then dragged the group a bit to relocate it in the window. When I let go the mouse, the OS scattered the icons all over that window. OS rearranged all the icons to avoid any icon spot already occupied, but he bug was that any icon that had been moved is no longer occupying its spot. This had worked correctly in 6.0.6 (and was fixed in the final 7.0 release).
Well, still no. X is a ground-up rewrite of Clbuttic (which can run Clbuttic as an application, even); 10.x releases are changes to the code, much of which is actually fairly stable.
