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!

What you'll see from some Apple-centric folks is just because THEY have no issues with the Finder, then anyone that does is a troll, or it's his own fault, or Apple-moves-in-mysterious-ways, and so on. That really annoys me as it makes it seem as if I'm just making stuff up, as if all those people who find the Finder a mess are just.... Lying.

That's not true for me, at least. I've been using Linux since 2001, and *never* had any problems with Linux installations integrating nicely with SMB networks - no matter the distribution.

So to use your own words, I might say that just because you have no issues with SMB networks from Linux, then anyone that does is a troll, or it's his own fault and on and on..

I have had issues working with SBM network from Linux. Because you had no issues does it make there is no issue so am I trolling or lying or what?

That is why I am always telling you that you are totally biased and are trolling on every Mac related post or at least do many off topic postings including on this "article" (truely it should be called a blog or diary maybe?)

Why are you quoting my comment so selectively, and leaving out the important part? What a pathetic attempt at attacking me, kid. Let me quote it in full:

That's not true for me, at least. I've been using Linux since 2001, and *never* had any problems with Linux installations integrating nicely with SMB networks - no matter the distribution. Again - this doesn't mean SMB isn't to blame, but for me personally, the only bad citizen in my network is ALWAYS Mac OS X.


Seriously. Go troll somewhere else.
