No. He does not mean that. He did not say that. He did not imply that. He did not suggest that.
Like most chat programs, iChat allows all sorts of notifications. In iChat's case, when a "buddy" becomes available you can set any combo of a sound playing (with or without repeat), the icon in the dock bouncing (with or without repeat), or speaking text - including the name of the buddy (with configurable volume). And of course, you can set a default but also have specific settings for specific buddies. No big deal, but something that Peter clearly did not know about. Then again, there is a *lot* that Peter clearly does not know but pretends he does.
The feature in question is not the same one as what I, and Tim Smith, have been talking about. The two features can be use together or separately - the user can chose which way they like things to happen.
Hmmm, and here I was thinking you might like choice... but that is clearly not the case.
Keep in mind I am not playing your silly game of stating that all choice is good - I am merely pointing out that OS X allows a choice that, as far as we know, Linux does not. And, more than that, it is a choice that affects people in a real-world way, as both Tim and I have explained.
And watch you run to silly straw men and side issues:

And look, Peter runs again! Poor Peter... can not stand the fact that OS X simply has some benefits over Linux... drives him crazy! Well, maybe too late for that - Peter's anger and poor self image did that to him long ago.
