[News] Leopard Makes OS X 'Weaker' (Linux Becomes More Attractive)

Leopard is the New Vista, and It's Pissing Me Off

| Before Apple makes any more smug OS-related attacks on Microsoft, it ought to 
| take a good look in the mirror. 



10.5.1 Fixes Numerous Leopard Flaws

,----[ Quote ]
| 10.5.1 also reportedly fixes problems in storing wireless network passwords 
| and using Disk Utility, and it addresses five Mail flaws. A bug that resulted 
| in "potential data loss issue when moving files across partitions in the 
| Finder" has been corrected; this issue cropped up when using Command-drag to 
| move, not copy, files in the Finder across local hard drives and mounted 
| volumes.     


Massive Data Loss Bug in Leopard

,----[ Quote ]
| Aaaand … poof!
| The directory on our Desktop is now gone. The directory shown in the C$ mount 
| will only contain files that were copied entirely before the connection was 
| disrupted, but nothing more (in the demonstration case, there’s only one file 
| in "test", so nothing was copied successfully).   
| [...]
| Where’s the rest of our data?
| Apple, please FTFF already. This is unacceptable.


Leopard early adopters suffer for the rest of us

| Mac OS X 10.5.1 will likely arrive around Thanksgiving with fixes for most of 
| the problems encountered by the brave early adopters. 


Some Leopard upgraders see 'blue screen of death'

,----[ Quote ]
| A significant number of Mac owners upgrading to Leopard on Friday reported 
| that after installing the new operating system, their machines locked up, 
| showing only an interminable -- and very Windows-like -- "blue screen of 
| death."   


New iMacs plagued by interface freezing issues

| A growing number of users have reported that Apple's aluminum all-in-one 
| computers suffer from a flaw that locks up the interface, rendering the 
| system all but inert until a reboot.  


Apple Arrogance Unleashed!

,----[ Quote ]
| But the only problem with Apple is that it has no gratitude. Or humility. Or 
| generosity. Or manners. 
| I'm a big fan of Apple products. But there's no escaping the fact that Apple 
| has always been, well, arrogant. Which was fine -- their superiority complex 
| has always been both partially deserved and one of the company's motivations 
| to strive for better things. But in the past few months, the company seems to 
| have crossed some kind of invisible line, now brazenly pissing off not just 
| competitors, but its most devoted fans, closest partners and industry 
| supporters.
