Mac OS X Apple recently seeded developers with yet another build of Mac OS X 10.4.11, destined to be the final update to Tiger. Builds 8S155 (PowerPC) and 8S2155 (Intel) deliver an additional number of bug fixes, including remedies to issues with the BSD Kernel and interlock timeouts, ASR and scanning and restoring, CoreText Layout, and a bug with ImageCapture that creates problems downloading images from an iPhone when the phone has a large number of saved photos.

Some words to Leopard

Is it just me, or do others also think that Leopard is the less promoted version of MacOSX so far? Since the introduction in March and some discussion about the inclusion of ZFS and the design of Time Machine, there was pretty nothing, neither from Apple side, nor from other sources. Now the release seems to be in October, but still no official conformation, no release date, no hype. All I hear from Apple is iPod, iPhone, iMac, iWork, iLife, but nothing about Leopard. It already makes me bit suspicious. Which role does MacOSX play in Apple universum? What if Apple decides to ditch the OS business alltogether and port all it software to Windows? Is this scenario so unlikely? It seems to me that the only unsuccesfull business, which Apple continues is programming of MacOSX. There they have 3 or less percent of the market as opposed to their music business with 70 and more procent. Even their hardware is much more successfull now, since Windows can be installed on it.

Please don't get me wrong. I love MacOSX and work every day with it, but if I see the progresses Linux and Windows make and promotion efforts from Apple side, I'm really starting worrying.
