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.

I don't disagree with anything you say, but it is telling that so many people feel they need to jump up and defend Apple. Apple is a "big boy." It doesn't need to have its minions out there to jump on anyone who looks askance at it. So much of the buzz out there in the fan community about these appropriation issues smacks of religious apologists who twist and contort and build elaborate justifications for every action that every prophet and church leader has ever done. Just lighten up a bit!

Look, I love Apple. I love the Mac OS. And I think there is room for debate on this issue. Unless someone from Apple comes clean and tells us just how much they were inspired by these other apps, we'll never know. But this fanatical knee-jerk defense of Apple just smacks of desperation. Hey, Apple is a great company, and OSX is a great OS. Stop getting so defensive!
