Mac OS X As you have surely noticed by now, Apple's CEO Steve Jobs held his keynote speech yesterday at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco. So far, the responses have been mixed; I have seen a lot of excitement, but also a lot of disappointment. Personally, I am not really sure where I stand.

I was a bit let down myself. I truly expected some revolutionary steps. There are a lot of need additions that I'm sure we'll grow used to. Time Machine and versioning filesystems in general are pretty cool, so I can't wait to use that.

Besides the addition of ZFS, the thing I would truly like to see is non-blocking I/O in the Finder. If a mounted volume is offline, or the network is down, the Finder should not hang, or beach ball so badly force quit (or kill -9!) won't do anything, and I have to reboot the machine. This is the only flaw on OSX that I have no patience for (not that I have huge list of 'flaws').

Please fix this Apple, it's a showstopper.
