Mac OS X Ten years ago, to the day. March 24, 2001, the first official released version of Mac OS X went on sale, for USD 129. It was a massive step up and a massive step down from MacOS 9 at the same time - technically way more advanced, but clearly still in its infancy and pretty much unusable. Kernel panics, crashes, incredibly slow, and lacking many key features. It was so bad, in fact, that Mac OS X 10.1 was released as a free upgrade. Of course, we geeks know that Mac OS X is technically a lot older, but alas, let's just celebrate these 10 years. Maybe Lion will finally bring a usable non-crashing Finder!

Lol. I definitely disagree with Thom on a lot of Apple stuff, but Finder having some bugs isn't one of them. On the other hand, I still wouldn't call it an epic fail or anything, it's just not awesome and does flake out for me - though I don't think it has for my kids or wife, I think thumbnails of huge images (try Blue Marble NASA ims, for example!) and lots of them tend to take it down.

But I hated Windows Explorer every day I used it for 5 years (and wrote my own replacement that I used the next 5 ;) ).
