Sandboxing on National Radio

Rush Limbaugh (via Nicolas Seriot):

And what he’s talking about being “restrictive,” is software developers with the new operating system for computers, for the Macs, Mountain Lion. You don’t get your app in the App Store unless it’s ”sandboxed,” which means… “Restrictive” is the word. The best way to explain it is that it can’t access the data in any other app and very little of the operating system itself.

[…]

Politically they have nothing in common with me, and your question is very valid. “Why in the world would you want to tout people that have no desire to do anything with you?” It’s just the stuff works. I think it’s state-of-the-art. I think it’s the best out there for what I need to do. Their stuff has facilitated my productivity like nothing else has.

As a long-time Mac user, he’s presumably been hearing questions like this since Apple was the “hippie” company rather than the “restrictive” company.
