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.

Tiger innovative?
by claudius mustafa on Thu 28th Apr 2005 15:15 UTC

How come such a developed OS as OSX Tiger does not feature such advanced features as a humble OS as RISC OS? Context-sensitive menu's with title/dragbars, full UI customisation, 'inverted' functionality in windows/buttons/etc via other mouse button, SYSTEM-WIDE drag&drop, etc.? Why don't people look beyond the usual Microsoft and Linux suspects before proclaiming Apple the grand innovator? Sometimes little known companies, like Acorn (RIP), were really innovating and already having features 10 years ago many would find utterly innovating today.

Beyond this little rant, I do find Tiger a wonderful OS, I just find it baffling how, on the one hand a OS can have such advanced features, and on the other hand be a bit 'incomplete' and lacking obvious and straightforward usability.
