comment Creating A Bootable USB Of Windows 8.1 On OS X?
This does not work. These are the same instructions that Ubuntu posts on their site for making a live USB and there have been several questions on superuser about this process not working.

comment Is MacOS 1.0 Free?
@mmk These things are often called "abandonware" because the company no longer cares what people do with the software, licensed or not. I believe System 7 was "released" in this way, since you can run it in an emulator in your browser.

comment What happens if I buy a paid game while it's free?
You may think of purchasing apps as adding a license to use them to your account; when an app is presented gratis, you get the license gratis.

Thanks for the TOC. Someone else has already suggested the book, though.

I appreciate the suggestion - however, that book is actually elementary for me. I consider myself competent in Unix. It's a good starter book, definitely.

comment Where can I find a comprehensive and detailed technical software manual for OS X?
I picked up Mac OS X and iOS Internals, and while it is a good book, it didn't suit my particular needs. Thank you nonetheless, it's a good reference for the future.

comment Run Makefile from Finder
Not sure about 100% Finder make-ing, but, you could open a Terminal window and type make then drag the Makefile into the Terminal to copy the path to it.

Although it doesn't solve OP's problem, this was useful for me - thank you!

A tad out of date, but I'm sure it's a great source of information - I'll likely check it out too if I can spare the cash.

Anyway, that second book looks like it'll do the trick - I'll get a copy and return to accept your answer if it does help. Thanks a ton.
