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!

What exactly happens?


Network shares are a pain in the Finder. Random "disconnects" (it's still supposedly there but the Finder can't read anything), resuming from sleep causes the Finder to beachball for 5 minutes when opening mounted shares, and every now and then (few times a month, sometimes every week) it'll just give up and crash. Restarting is impossible, you'll get a numerical error - only a full reboot will fix it.

I've had consistent issues like this crossing 4 releases, and about... Seven, 8 Macs or so. Do a Google search - you'll see I'm not the only one.
