Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y OSNews regular Kaiwai takes a superficial look at Vista and MacOS 10.4/10.5, and concludes: "To say that the changes in Windows Vista are only skin deep is missinformed to say the least; spend some time reading those sources I have listed, and even if you don't have a desire to run Windows Vista or particular interested in Windows based technology, it does provide some good resources explaining the changes and rationale behind those choices made. So from a purely technical point of view, Windows Vista is actually looking a whole lot more interesting than what the detractors have been saying in the computer press about the current direction."

IMHO doesn't make sense `comparing` (or looking at) one OS that isn't released with another that is.

I think just when apple show us what 10.5 will be, we can make that kind of analysis.

Vista has enough development time to anyone know which inovative features will package it..

9 months before tha release of the two OSs we known anything about Vista and nothing about MacOS X.5


I put 10.5 in there on the assumption that Apple will continue evolving the operating system along the current direction; building in features into Cocoa which Carbon has and Cocoa lacks, improving scalability, which will be required when Intel start shipping 4 core monsters.

Sure, we don't have a definitive map on the table as to where Apple is heading, but one can atleast make the educated assumption that it'll build and expand upon existing technologies already found in MacOS X 10.4.
