Mac OS X "No one is unhappy with Mac OS X Version 10.4, known as Tiger. OS X is not an application platform that needed repair, speeding up, or exterior renovation. Motivations for major upgrades of competing system software - roll-ups of an unmanageable number of fixes, because the calendar says it's time, or because users are perceived to have version fatigue - don't apply to OS X. People buy Macs because the platform as a whole is perfect, full stop. Leopard is a rung above perfection. It's taken as rote that the Mac blows away PC users' expectations. Leopard blows away Mac users' expectations, and that's saying a great deal."

If I may be so bold as to ask: how did OSN get their hands on Leopard? I thin every review should include information on how the gadget/computer was received and what is the arrangement with the company (will the gadget/computer/OS be returned to the manufacturer after review or not). Naive question, for sure, but one of great importance for judging the reviewers motives. ;)

The way we usually get stuff: we buy it, or we get it on a loan basis. It's the latter in this case.
