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.

RE: widgets and backup

"I have yet to find workstation end-users who need it or have ever used it in this age of zip utilities and cd/dvd burners standard on almost every new machine"

You obviously don't have 40GBs of irreplacable personal data / designs / commercial work on your own computer that you mirror to an iPod everyday; or do you live at work and rely on server backups?

The lack of a backup App on OSX is really, really dense. Although I suspect this should be rectified with Automater in Tiger, I only hope I can set it up to copy only new files and delete orphans on the backup device which the Windows Backup Utility cannot do (I had to write my own)
