Mac OS X "While the Apple hype machine and its fanatical followers would have you believe that Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard' is a major upgrade to the company's venerable operating system, nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, Leopard is yet another evolutionary upgrade in a long line of evolutionary OS X upgrades, all of which date back to the original OS X release in 2001. But let me get one huge misunderstanding out of the way immediately: That's not a dig at Leopard at all. Indeed, if anything, Apple is in an enviable position: OS X is so solid, so secure, and so functionally excellent that it must be getting difficult figuring out how to massage another USD 129 out even the most ardent fans. Folks, Leopard is good stuff. But then that's been true of Mac OS X for quite a while now." Additionally, Apple acknowledges installation problems caused by Unsanity's APE, while others are complaining about problems with Java, or visual oddities. Additionally, there are hacks that restore the black dock triangles, opacify the menubar, and to enable Time Machine on Airport disks. Update: It appears the Leopard firewall has a dent in its armour.

Don't tell anyone, but Microsoft Windows XP was only a point release on Microsoft Windows 2000!

Well this is an interesting little moderating war that's been going on with this comment of mine! At first it was voted down to 1 and then someone popped it back up to 2, now its been voted down all the way to 0! Still as amusing as it all is, could one of the people modding my comment down kindly leave a POST about why it is they feel the need to mod me down?

According to the vot confirmation page you are only allowed to vote a comment down under the following conditions:

Yes, this comment includes personal attacks/offensive language

Yes, this comment is off-topic

Yes, this comment is spam or includes advertisements

Could someone kindly tell me which of the three my previous comment violated?
