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.

You have to admit that Windows Desktop Search on XP blows. Google desktop on XP is far better. WDS on Vista is better though.

OS X's release cycle isn't bad at all. It's incremental and easier to budget for. Vista is very expensive, essentially requires you to get new hardware to get the most out of it. While it is true that it's the only upgrade a Windows user has had to pay for since XP, people just don't think like that. They just see the $300 price tag for ultimate or the requirement of a new computer.

OS X on the other hand appears inexpensive, it adds new features each time will install and run well on reasonably recent machines. And you get security/bug updates for free, just like Windows.
