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.

Forgot about them other desk accessories. But still, to come up with something that resembles almost exactly how Konfabulator looks is not becoming of Apple.

It just pains me to see Apple not doing better.

Just because every one does it does not make it right!

I would advocate Apple to just buy the rights to those software that they like and then give them the features or UI-just as they did with SoundJam when they morphed it into iTunes. As someone commented, Apple is big enough to afford this instead of being a thief-however small the idea that was stolen from its own developers.

The long-term effects of ripping of these small developers is to discourage developers from coming up with zany products. If on the other hand, if a small time developer feels that his/her efforts may be rewarded by Apple buying rights to their software, this would encourage more developers to the Apple fold.

Just my 2

Cheers
