“‘Tiger’ is the name of the next release of Mac OS X, Apple Computer announced this week, following its habit of naming its Unix-based operating system after big cats like Puma (10.1), Jaguar (10.2) and Panther (10.3),” Glenn Fleishman writes for The Seattle Times. “Tiger brings to mind an eponymous William Blake poem, which begins ‘Tiger, tiger burning bright.’ Apple has never been better poised to make its core users happier or to find a broader audience. But what’s missing from Panther that only Tiger can bring?”
Fleishman writes, “Apple hasn’t reached the end of the road as to what an operating system can provide, but the maturity of Mac OS X makes it harder to compile a wish list that isn’t made up entirely of small feature improvements and bug fixes or complaints about iSync. I’d like to hear from readers about substantial features they would like to see in a future release that aren’t available from Mac software developers.”
