I figured out the appleid.apple.com issue.

It sniffs your User-Agent.

If it says Linux, Bad Gateway error.

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

IT WORKS WITH A WINDOWS UA

IT WORKS WITH A BSD UA

IT WORKS WITH A GOD DAMN OS/2 UA

NOT LINUX

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU

And it's specifically that too. If I delete "Linux" from the UA and resend the request, it succeeds. If I delete just the 'x' off the end, it succeeds. If I lowercase the 'L' it fails. They are deliberately blocking Linux users from managing their Apple ID if they have one.

Wait what?

If I remove the "X11; " from the OS section of the UA, it succeeds. So they're sniffing for "X11; Linux" case-insensitive.

Guess Apple hates X11.

@alexbuzzbee let's keep in mind that this is the company that currently maintains Linux's printing subsystem

Very reassuring, indeed...

@Shamar @zalandocalrissian @alexbuzzbee Something I noticed when reading that: the file conversions incorporated into it are for us maintained separately. The ones maintained with CUPS are Mac OS-specific.

So far the core can still be compiled for Linux-based systems. But it is worrying.
