The list is intended primarily to provide a forum for UK users of these technologies (both academic and otherwise), but those from outside the UK (especially in Europe) are also encouraged to participate. Because of its origins in the NeXT-using community, the list is NOT intended to act as a forum for users of existing Apple systems wishing to migrate to OS X, as such users will be better served within existing Apple Mac fora. However, some Mac developers (especially those with Unix experience) may find the discussion of the Unix and Cocoa systems in OS X of interest.
