Mac OS X "What's new in Leopard? A lot. From the unified interface (goodbye, brushed aluminum) to major under-the-hood changes, to wholly new apps, Leopard is a substantial, albeit evolutionary, advance for Mac OS X that builds on a solid foundation and adds a modicum of eye candy to reinforce the notion that this is something new and improved. It's also fast - especially impressive given the new graphics sprinkled throughout the OS."

between two OSNews editors.

when you listen to Thom, Leopard is just a SP for Mac OS X.
when you listen to Eugenia, Leopard has major changes...

Duffman, I should mod you for nonsense, but it's much more fun to have you fall on your bottom:

"Definitely true. It's ridiculous to compare Apple's .x releases with Windows service packs."

Obviously you can't. He's not off topic, nor he's using offensive language. It is good to know though criteria you use to mod down people.

Secondo tempo, taken out of context, that quote doesn't have any relevance because the original poster said :

Microsoft Service packs are nothing more than bugs fixes and some features improvements, which is exactly what Apple does with their 10.x.x releases

Spot the difference? .x.x , not quite .x

Because Windows Vista is a much bigger release than any of the OS X .x releases.


When I take a look at Leopard changes under the hood (kernel, UNIX certification, dtrace, sandbox, obj-c 2.0, new TCP IP stack, scripting bridges, etc...) I am sorry but your statement *is* wrong.

The kernel changed possibly more in Leopard than in Vista which is based on the windows 2003 server.

Sure I change your words, but just to enlight that between 2 authors on OSnews, there will be very different point of view.

You should see them talking about BeOS sometime, completely reversed roles in the "yay!" and "meh." department...

Otherwise, Thom, it will seem like you're going down this route again:

Let's avoid being even tempted to perform arbitrary moddings, shall we?

Here's an idea, why don't we all agree that we couldn't give a crap about the stupid modding system, thus rendering the whole thing completely useless and removing anyone with a superiority complex of the 'power' that they think they have?

And before someone tries to be smart: Yes I do use the modding system. I see no value in it whatsoever, but it does give my fingers something to do whilst I read through the posts :-)
