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.

RE[2]: The importance of bias

Member since:

ok so where is the ars technica review if your so unbiased in your roundup?

Your article links to paul thurrot (sp???) for gods sake... he might have a clue about Windows software but he is the last you should ask advice from for Apple. And yes I listen to his windows weekly podcast and his apple comments on that were STUPID. Add the ars technica link to this roundup or its quite obvious that your just trying to fan the flames against apples OS.

BTW... I dont disagree with this roundup, but if your actually looking for equality like you supposedly did for Vista then missing the ars technica and linking to Windows supersite of ALL people is an obvious stab against it. And I dont care the Ars technica article is just down from this, it wont be in 6 months time.
