applefags will defend this
You're right, nothing to worry about!!!
Macworldexpressed the concern that Apple could take full control away from users and developers in future releases and move the security policy ofOS Xslowly toward that of Apple'smobile operating systemiOS, whereupon the installation of many utilities and modifications requires jailbreaking.Some applications and drivers will not work to their full extent or cannot be operated at all unless the feature is disabled, either temporarily or permanently. Ars Technicasuggested that this could affect smaller developers disproportionately, as larger ones may be able to work with Apple directly.
>At the time /usr was coined, its meaning was user and home directories were located there. unix/universal system resource is actually a backronym
$USER is the portable environment variable though.
Or just user $HOME or ~ for short
It's a concern alright, but so far it's possible to disable it see >>52381425
bin is for executables. That's why you have /bin (system executables), /usr/bin and /usr/local/bin
Program files are much more than just executables; it's also services/daemons.
>In about 3 years
In about 3 years your father will have chopped his dick off and requests that you call him Caitlyn too...
Random numbers aren't contributing to the discussion anon, but I'll admit that it is a shady move.
On a side note, Windows users will justify driver signing too and that it isn't possible to disable the requirement for just single drivers (you need to disable it for your entire system which is a massive security issue). This hurts hobbyists who want to experiment with their own peripherals and can't rely on generic USB or RS232 drivers.
>Secondary hierarchy for read-only user data; contains the majority of (multi-)user utilities and applications
That is my point. Meant for user utilities.
I think some confusion. I am referring to what windows OS intended for the Program Files directory to be as a concept and not in execution. I brought up /bin because that is where the system executables go. Not ever sure what we are talking about at this point.
>/usr is the second major section of the filesystem. /usr is shareable, read-only data. That means that /usr should be shareable between various FHS-compliant hosts and must not be written to. Any information that is host-specific or varies with time is stored elsewhere.
>must not be written to
/usr/local is writable
You can disable SIP in recovery mode
Other unices have had similar root-limiting features
Negating local root sploits and basic bitch malware
Turn it off if you don't like it.
Honestly just take away to write to anything except the desktop with anything that isn't Apple approved.
I have enough knowledge of the decision making history of tech companies to make an educated guess about this. Apple has never been about giving users control.
On a side note YouTube HAS been about recommending users not to use their real name, see what happened to them.
Tough chance Apple's going to be better.
