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."

How can any software be perfect?

After using my Mac for about year now, I'm seriously considering switching (back) to Linux. The completely inflexible window management drives me nuts, and the less I have to use the dock, the better.

But oh, I'm sorry, now I see that it's "perfect". I guess I'll have to try harder to adapt to my machine (here I was thinking that it should be the other way around).
