Ubuntu Drive Visible to OS X?

| The utilities available vary; hdiutil burns CDs and DVDs and so
| replaces cdrecord and growisofs, and it often has Unix itilities
| instead of GNU utilities, but it's hard to argue the OS X experience
| is worse or more limiting than Linux.

In my experience (10.2.x), the command line experience of MOSX is totally
broken.  Stuff like hdiutil is not returning any useful return codes,
and there is no way for an application which is started from cron or
thereabouts to interact with the UI.  Linking shared libraries is,
well, interesting.  Yes, and NetInfo.  Horrible, horrible and poorly

(This is my personal experience with the MOSX command line -- YMMV)

UNIX is user friendly, it's just picky about who its friends are      : :' :
