Mac OS X "No one is unhappy with Mac OS X Version 10.4, known as Tiger. OS X is not an application platform that needed repair, speeding up, or exterior renovation. Motivations for major upgrades of competing system software - roll-ups of an unmanageable number of fixes, because the calendar says it's time, or because users are perceived to have version fatigue - don't apply to OS X. People buy Macs because the platform as a whole is perfect, full stop. Leopard is a rung above perfection. It's taken as rote that the Mac blows away PC users' expectations. Leopard blows away Mac users' expectations, and that's saying a great deal."

Uau, here it goes again.. the Apple PR machinery! Now, really. I have some issues with this article. First of all, sound like a detergent commercial. Second of all, nothing is perfect (even Apple). And third - if Mac preachers would really have a good education, they would know this - everything is relative. I would give the perfect 10, if I stick to this rather stupid grading, to Ubuntu, Fedora 8, ... With both, i can do all i want to and wish to. And both are free as in freedom. Both developed by amazing bunch of people who give their spare time to develop something new and useful. Now, how can OS X beat that? Besides, criticism is the engine of progress... not "perfect 10" articles such as this one.

Additional edit: I read the article twice, checking if I understood it incorrectly the first time, trying to find traces of sarcasm, irony. No luck.
