May 10,000 Applications Blossom

January 9, 2003 Written by Charles Cook

While on the subject of marketing fluff, I seem to remember Steve Jobs in this week's MacWorld keynote proudly claiming there are now over 10,000 applications for Mac OSX. Its strange how whenever a new unix-like platform is released there are always over 10,000 third-party applications running on it almost immediately. Is there somewhere you can download the source to as many old creaky Unix apps as you need to reach this amazing number?
