Mac OS X Ten years ago, to the day. March 24, 2001, the first official released version of Mac OS X went on sale, for USD 129. It was a massive step up and a massive step down from MacOS 9 at the same time - technically way more advanced, but clearly still in its infancy and pretty much unusable. Kernel panics, crashes, incredibly slow, and lacking many key features. It was so bad, in fact, that Mac OS X 10.1 was released as a free upgrade. Of course, we geeks know that Mac OS X is technically a lot older, but alas, let's just celebrate these 10 years. Maybe Lion will finally bring a usable non-crashing Finder!

Seriously Thom, what is it you actually DO to cause it to crash?


I have to agree. I "use it" on a daily basis, most days for the whole working day. I have both network and internet hosted volumes mounted, as well as internal, USB and Firewire drives, am constantly moving files (drag and drop) between local, network and internet volumes, have auto synchronisation of various volumes using Time Machine, iDisk sync and CCC (which includes auto mounting and unmounting of volumes), all happening at the same time, have a Windows VM running in VBox that has local filesystem access (not that this is specifically Finder related, but it does access the filesystem), and I can't remember the last time the Finder crashed.

PEBCAK maybe?
