Mac OS X "OS X 10.5 Leopard is the best operating system released by Apple so far and runs neck and neck with Ubuntu's Gutsy Gibbon as my favorite operating systems to use. In the past I wanted to get an iMac, but not because of OS X but rather because of their sleek hardware. Now after using Leopard, I want to buy an iMac to run Leopard. Nice job Apple." More here.

Your question is not rude at all. I enjoy working with older apps to name a few: Acta, More, Clockwork, WordPerfect, my Epson printer, FullWrite, Loki, Netscape 4.8 (for sentimental reasons and boy is it fast) and Outlook Express (prefer it to Mail). Remember, just because an OS is newer does not mean it is better [in all areas]. Heck, I still use a 22" Diamond Pro CRT monitor because it is vastly superior to newer LCDs.

THe reason I thought it might have sounded rude was the abrupt nature in which I asked the question.

I can understand about CRT vs. LCD; the issue of washed out colour still exists in LCD. The move to LCD's in the main wasn't the result of 'better technology' but because it made computers more ascetically pleasing. IIRC there was actually a company, I think it was Samsung, who put out a CRT but it was significantly slimmer than a standard CRT, almost that of LCD.

As for the rest, time to move on; there are replacements out there. Pages is a great alternative to Word, but then again, Office 2008 might prove my 'Microsoft scepticism' wrong. The issues you're having sound more like personal preference rather than hardcore reliance on something because there are no alternatives in that given area.

I can't agree with your "Time to move on" philosophy. If something works for me in Tiger and Leopard takes that away while adding virtually nothing then why "move on. " I don't see any compelling reason to downgrade to Leopard. As for Pages, I tried it during the trial it was OK but why spend $$ when what I have already works. As for MS Office, I will never buy it as I loathe it and NeoOffice renders it irrelevant.
