Microsoft Exec: I wrote Apple’s OS

Filed under: — menk @ 10:14 am

Rick Rashid (Microsoft’s Head of Research) claims since he wrote a few lines of code for the open source Mach OS that somehow he is responsible for the Mac (OS X) and the iPhone. As he pointed out to Microsoft developers at a recent developers conference:

“If you use a Macintosh or an iPhone, which honestly, I would not recommend, you would be using code that I wrote more than 25 years ago.”

I guess his point is that he wrote better code 25 Years ago than he and his team can deliver today.
