InfoWorld’s Yager: Apple will take computing to the next level with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard

InfoWorld’s Tom Yager dedicates this week’s Ahead of the Curve column to Apple’s decision to make Leopard fully UNIX compliant.

Praising Mac OS X using an orchestra analogy, Yager writes, “Commercial Linux is a gigantic stage filled with competing, gifted soloists. UNIX is an orchestra of high reputation playing in a hall that is a gracious historic landmark. OS X is that orchestra, but one that has been moved to a lavish hall. Apple, Darwin, and BSD will take computing to the next level by showing equal regard for tradition, performance, and users.”

  1. talking about sounds; why can’t Apple change that damn startup sound? It has been around now for, what, 11 years? It’s not that bad…only, it doesn’t feel as fresh and high tech as it did back then.
