Mac OS X Three reviews of Mac OS X Leopard, to be released coming Friday. David Pogue writes: "Leopard is powerful, polished and carefully conceived. Happy surprises, and very few disappointments, lie around every corner. This Leopard has more than 300 new spots - and most of them are bright ones." Walt Mossberg concludes: "Leopard isn't a must-have for current Mac owners, but it adds a lot of value. For new Mac buyers, it makes switching even more attractive." Edward C. Baig of USA Today writes: "With Leopard, Apple's operating system widens its lead aesthetically and technologically. Whether the sixth major release of OS X in as many years puts a dent in Microsoft's dominant market share is another matter entirely." Thanks to MacWereld.nl [Dutch] for pointing these reviews out.

I have been there too ...

I have a Mac Mini (for the Mrs.) and two Powerbooks (G4 15 and 17 inch). I also use FreeBSD heavily for network based testing (dummynet of course).

But I too have started to switch. I am starting to see a lot more Gray screens on the Macs. I had to upgrade RAM to over 1GB to get core video and other stuff to work. Don't even talk about having two users logged in with NeoOffice documents open. The system crawls. Now I have a Vista Desktop and a laptop.

Also, Apple charges for Remote Terminal licences. MSFT does not.
