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.

That article is based on the assumption that if a program doesn't have a specific feature, then the user is deprived of that feature. In most GUI environments, this is true because the tendency is towards large applications that do many tasks, as opposed to small programs that perform specific functions and can easily interoperate.
