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.

Good review, application support comment flawed

I liked this review but I don't agree with a few comments. Since people have touched upon other omissions, let me concentrate on the factual error.

You state that 10-20% of the apps will not work. This is simply NOT true! Apple has not changed any of the APIs!

Apps that do not work are HACKS! Apps that have reverse engineered Apple's INTERNAL APIs which were not meant for public. This is certainly the case for apps that use Apple's menu item system instead of using the public one. Also, apps that HACK Safari etc will not work since the function entry points have changed.

ALL of the apps that use PUBLIC AND SUPPORTED APIs work just fine!
