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!

Why is that a user failure? Or are you just trolling?


It might not be user fail, but you have a lot of anecdotal evidence and so does everyone who contradicts you... the truth lies somewhere inbetween though. SMB has always been problematic on every non Microsoft platform, so using that as a reason the Finder sucks doesn't really prove a lot. Ever try using SMB under BeOS with Netserver? Exercise in pain. I've used Jaguar, Panther, Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard and the reliability of SMB has gotten better with each iteration. Couple that with the news that Lion is dropping SAMBA in favour of an Apple internal implementation, well, I guess the future might be better!
