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."

This post was not worth being linked because the review just falsely claims that OSX Leopard was perfect, in spite of the bugs that are common, the holes in the firewall, the changes that keep many people from updating or that lead them to using all kinds of hack to remove them.

Leopard might be good (I don't use proprietary operating systems, I wouldn't know) but it's not perfect and it has many obvious and well-documented flaws.

Linking this was a bad decision by OSNews, makes you look like a Apple PR outlet.
