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.

MacOS Tiger is a fine upgrade IF you have the required hardware to take advantage of those new features, but with that being said, until application developers take advantage of those new API's, any added benefit from those API additions will be lost on the customer. As for some of the applications, I would have liked to see saved passwords in Safari like how Firefox has, MSN support in iChat so that I no longer need MSN and iChat open when online etc.

Regarding the comments in reference to how American dashboard is - I'm surprised it took you that long to realise something so basic. If a company is located in America, anycountry external to the US is meaningless to them. Heck, you could have 1.2billion people, but unless you live in the US, American companies see you as nothing more than a irritation (kinda like how SUN has developer offers, but only makes them available to US customers).
