Mac OS X I was able to try out and preview Mac OS X Panther 10.3 for the past few months after WWDC and for the last few days I am running a latest version. So, what to expect from Mac OS X when it comes out on the evening of October 24th? Come in and have a look in this preview article. Update: screenshots removed at request of Apple.

Windows Media Plugin - Why bug Apple and not Microsoft?
by Homer Simpson on Thu 16th Oct 2003 09:36 UTC

<em>I need a Windows Media Player plugin. Apple is touting Windows interoperability, but this is a sore spot right there. I usually need to view WMV video and movie trailers that happen to not be available as QuickTime or Real, but most of the time I wanna watch music video clips at launch.yahoo.com. I mean, I've got the Internet bandwidth, why not be able to enjoy Red Hot Chilli Peppers or Linkin Park videos as the average Windows user can at 300 kbps? ;) </em>

Well how about bugging Microsoft first then to write the missing codecs - Mac OS X is still on WMP7 and half of the content doesn't work. It's not Apple's responsibility to include third-party software that doesn't exist. Just like it's not fair to rag on Apple (as someone recently did) when Aladdin's Stuffit Expander wasn't working as they required - lesson 1: contact the developer of the application in question! D'oh!
