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!

Agree. It happens. One question to Thom though. What are the file system and the OS running the shared folder? E.g. if you set up an SMB file share from a Linux server and then connect to it from a Mac, it is very likely to be a nightmare. OTOH, SMB works more or less smoothly between Windows and Linux or between Windows and Mac. Sometimes it is unclear whom to blame - the client or the server, especially if both are "aliens" in terms of the network protocol.
