Reverse Engineering OS X

desktop managerSo you are an unwealthy programming hobbiest who cannot afford the exorbitant fees of becoming a full blown Apple Developer Connection Member complete with access to pre-release seeds of the forth-coming OS, and you also don't like the idea of stealing pre-releases off of the underground internet and risking legal persecution from Apple. Nevertheless, you have an OS X product that you are proud of and would like to continue to support for years to come.  What do you do?  Get yourself a blog and harness the power of good people and the internet to help you reverse engineer OS X. That's what Rich Wareham, the coder behind Desktop Manager, did. If you're interested in doing the same, you should read his tutorial.

This type of news is why I love OS X.  It's about the community working together.
