Trust Ars.Technica to write a full-blown, geek account of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. Written by John Siracusa, ars gives the usual impartial look at Apple’s latest $129 OS offering, and a 21-page ‘mini’ review and commentary at that! Trust ars to get all down and dirty with the technical bits. The self-confessed geek that I am was lost in the forest of UNIX geektalk, KPIs, APIs, metadata and Apple’s CORE technologies.
I have a spanking new copy of Tiger which is just waiting to pounce once I back up and format my PowerBook G4.
Tiger – good and bad (mostly good actually!), here I come!
