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!

RE[5]: About the Finder

Same here. I use OSX heavily most of the week. I have seen the finder crash maybe a couple of times in YEARS of usage.

That is the problem with qualitative arguments and hearsay being put forth. Something which most technical writers without proper engineering background miss when writing about a field which demands quantitative and precise data/arguments (science being what it is).

Being inside engineering groups which produce some of these products, it is always a hoot to read these sort articles in which the author is projecting their cluelessness on the subject more than anything.
