I spent part of my Friday night installing Leopard (also known as Mac OS X 10.5) on my Mac at home. The install went perfectly and I was generally pleased with the new apps (like Time Machine and Spaces) and kept suggesting to my Vista machine sitting nearby that it already needed some new eye candy.
As I was reading my daily RSS feeds on my Vista machine (aha!) I came across a 2,174 page long blog post on Ars Technica titled Max OS X 10.5 Leopard: the Ars Technica review. This is a spectacular review – in exhilarating detail – of Leopard. The first few pages are a great rant about the new UI stuff, followed by a very thorough and deep analysis (both non-technical and technical) of all the new features and components in the upgrade. Ok – it’s only 17 pages long – but these are real pages chock full of interesting information for all Mac nerds.
Nicely done John Siracusa. Now, if I could just get Entourage to sync my tasks (and not suck so much in general as an email client) I might use my Mac more.
