  1. Bill Gates: Steve B. I can’t wait for this to happen. We are dying desperately need some fresh ideas for our next system upgrade after Vista.

    Steve B; Shold we called it Rosta?

    Bill: ………… Er, well, er. We are really run out of innovative ideas….. See how hard and how long we had tried to copy Tiger…. Our Newton product, er I mean Origami was a failure. And those koreans had embarrassed me…… Bill say something.

    Steve B: Should we called our next system Rotone?

    Bill: …….. Er, well, er. How can we make our next system better than the worst?

    Steve B: Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Develope Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Develope Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Developer Develope . I LOVE THIS COMPANY!!!!!

    Bill: ……….

  2. Typical Apple..So sneaky..All these ‘sneak peaks’. Why not just make OSX open-source like Dvorak has suggested. Ballmer, Dvorak and Jobs should get to together and make the perfect pc experience. They are tech studboys..

  3. I hope to God they’ve completely rewritten the Finder, still the achilles heel of OS X

    Try turning off a Mac whilst other people are connected to it and watch your Network die.

  4. To anyone who wants to call this a “delay” by Apple, keep in mind this tasty fact… when they released Tiger they publicly stated that the pace of their OS production would be slowing down, on purpose and by design.

    Mac OS X is a far more mature product now than it was in the 10.0 through 10.2 era. Apple will continue innovating but less of what they do is a “bandaid” to fix holes in OS X, and more of it will be completely new innovation.

    In other words, the kernel is stable, and rock solid, and fast enough, the drivers are mature and the interface is fine. Where they go from here is add new features and functionality. There is no reason to rush at this point, they already have the most stable and advanced operating system on the planet for personal computers.

  5. The real test will be whether Panther goes beyond the tweaks to make it rock with Intel and really improves anything for the faithful – such as iLife which has been completely neglected (except for $$iTunes$$). If they don’t, it may give credibility to some of the trolls in these posts who keep saying that Windows on Macs is the real future.
