Mac OS X "This is something I never thought I'd hear myself say - or maybe I should say, see myself type - about an Apple operating system: Mac OSX Leopard was released before it was ready. This operating system needed more testing on more systems with more hardware, and especially, more software configurations. The days of Apple computers operating with just the Mac OS and Adobe Photoshop installed, and practically nothing else to speak of, are long gone, and Apple knows this as well as anyone. This operating system was not properly beta tested, and Apple's customers are paying for it, with lost productivity and inoperative computers."

small problems here...

but no show stoppers.

What amazes me is all the people here who commented that they installed a .0 release in a production environment.

I didn't know that such things happened, and certainly didn't know they could happen without someone getting fired.

Perhaps I am naive (or ignorant), could someone point out the must have feature that would lead to replacing a solid and tried OS with a new release in a production environment?

It is not, that it is a '.0' release the issue..

The issue is installing a *new* version on production environements, without adequate testing first.

You should be as cautious for whatever .x versions as for .0 release..
