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!

That's what is called "user epic failures"!

Even the Finder of Tiger on my iMac Snow (which is G3 600Mhz) does not crash. I do not even need to mention my MBP 13". Oh and I never had a Finder crash on my iMac G3 333Mhz with Panther running either! It was really slow though the Finder had never crashed.
