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.

Spotlight vs Launchbar/ Quicksilver shortcut
by Dave on Fri 29th Apr 2005 09:46 UTC

I upgraded from 10.3.9 to 10.4 with LaunchBar installed and the Spotlight shortcut defaulted to control + space. So there can hardly be question of Apple trying to oust LaunchBar/ Quicksilver.
In general terms, Tiger seems somewhat fast in a number of areas, start-up is definitely much faster (after a few starts). Aesthetically speaking, I'm not happy with having Steve Jobs latest design tastes forced on me with every update. Especially the Menu Bar looks dreadful, to me. The break in the middle is irritating (makes looking at it uncomfortable) and unnecessary. It looks like a cheap plastic clip.
