Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

1. Mac OS X . - The operating system re-invogorated competition in the OS market. Certainly it kicked MS into action.


While I sorta agree with you on the iPhone, I have to disagree with you with MacOS X kicking MS into action.

All they inspired Microsoft to do was candy-up XP and glassify Vista/7. All the other goodies that came with Vista and 7 came from within Microsoft.

Fair enough. Though I would say that OS X raised the bar and became the gold standard. One of the main reasons Vista got such a bad reception was that OS X was seen to be better ( by many internet tech sites at any rate).

MS *had* to pull off something good. And by all accounts they did with Windows 7.

MS has a history of resting on its laurels when not pushed. Look at the release cycles of their browsers. It seems they only pushed out good software when they felt the heat from Netscape, Firefox, or Chrome.
