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.

Thanks for your review on Tiger. It seems to be a good user perspective of Tiger. Unfortunately I don't believe you have given enough credence to how significant an update Tiger is. The areas you definitely don't give enough significance to are Spotlight and the new 'Core' frameworks (Core.Data, Core.Image, etc). Spotlight is a major technology that has taken years to implement and even though you dismiss it, I believe it is a huge feature and changes my computing experience. Also, the Core frameworks will enable a whole new class of applications and therefore provides the foundations for new applications features in the future.
I agree the Dashboard features are not that significant and maybe some more time needs to be spent on the Dock and the Universal Menu Bar problems.
