Apple engraxa os pés aos srs de hollywood - Dtrace

Parece que o sr Steve Jobs e a apple são tão ou mais subservientes aos poderes de Hollywod quanto a micro$oft.

A apple, com certeza absoluta, por pedido do sr manda chuva Steve Jobs e para ter a benção dos senhores de Hollywood resolveu destruir as capacidades do Dtrace importado do Sun Solaris para o MacOSX de maneira a proteger o iTunes.

Está tudo explicadinho no blog de um dos criadores do Dtrace, Adam Leventhal.

Se dúvidas existissem que a apple é tão EVIL ou mais que a microsoft, atitudes destas ajudam a clarificar as coisas, só lhes falta mesmo o monopólio.

Exactly why Apple has banned DTrace from pulling on certain applications is anyone's guess. We lobbed out usual carrier pigeon in Cupertino's direction but don't expect any return message.

Ignoring Apple's usual "no comment", some posters on Leventhal's blog have speculated that Apple blocked DTrace access to iTunes to placate Jobs' friends in Hollywood.

DTrace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
DTrace is a comprehensive dynamic tracing framework created by Sun Microsystems. It was released under the Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL) in January 2005 and included in Sun's Solaris 10 for troubleshooting system problems in real time. DTrace was the first component of the OpenSolaris project to be released under the CDDL.

DTrace is designed to give operational insights that allow users to tune and troubleshoot applications and the OS itself. Special consideration has been taken to make it safe to use in a production environment. For example, there is minimal probe effect when tracing is underway, and no performance impact associated with any disabled probe; this is important since there are tens of thousands of DTrace probes that can be enabled.
