On the importance of SIP

I know that, with Mojave, SIP has to remain unabled. The question is: what does it imply on the os behavior? A more particular question is: Does disabling SIP turn back our Mac OS a “more standard” Unix OS?

To my understanding it only prevents applications to have root accesses. If I am not mistaking, it is a completely OK thing in Linux distribution.

I know, that you are not an apple dev but I suppose, since you developped TotalFinder, you could give us some serious hints about everything SIP does.

Best regards,

I’ve often wondered about it myself. I never enabled SIP in High Sierra or Mojave. I haven’t had any problems (that I know of), but am I putting my computer at risk?
