Mac OS X OSNews reviews Apple's latest OS upgrade. Is it an overpriced, glorified point release or a truly worthy upgrade with major new functionality? Is it a Longhorn killer or just more of the same? We'll take a look, and try to see what's on the surface as well as what's under the hood.

Apple's apps are great, but Finder and the Dock are still really behind - Why cannot I drag a file onto a minimized window and make it appear? Why can I not navigate one-up on a folder when dragging a file?

Explorer is fugly, but it's still far more quicker to use than Finder.

Tiger is definitely an awesome update worth a Major status because of the inclusion of never-before-there subsystems, CoreImage and CoreVideo. But where is my BackupApp like I have in windows!? Where is my MSPaint? What's the first thing you do when your kids want to play on the computer? Open MSPaint and let them doodle. Where is my native-FTP client (with uploads)?

Apple need to address the lack of most basic-of-basic utilities, but otherwise OSX is well polished OS.
