USA Today: With Leopard, Apple’s already superior Mac OS X widens lead over Microsoft’s Windows

“Long before Leopard pounced onto the scene, I rated OS X superior to Windows for most consumers. With Leopard, Apple’s operating system widens its lead aesthetically and technologically,” Edward C. Baig reports for USA Today.

“I migrated to Leopard from the last OS X version, Tiger, without pain on a MacBook laptop and my own iMac desktop; there’s mercifully none of the software driver and other hassles associated with a Windows operating system upgrade. Leopard was pre-installed on an iMac that Apple provided for testing,” Baig reports.

In his full review, Baig covers:
• Time Machine
• iChat
• Mail
• Dock
• Finder
• Quick Look
• Spaces
• Dashboard Web Clip

Baig reports, “hese and other features should satisfy new and old Mac fans. Leopard is one cool cat.”

  1. The only overly “seductive” new feature in 10.5 that’s bound to get alot of people in trouble in the years ahead is, ironically, Time Machine.

    Anyone who goes with what appears to be the default setting of leaving an external drive continuously connected so TM can make those automatic hourly and daily backups are one power surge away from disaster.

    Even using a good quality UPS/surge protector is NOT going to necessarily protect against the “big one”-a near or direct lightening hit on wires, locally or elsewhere in the area. I live in Florida; I know first hand what I’m talking about.

    If you value your data, connect the drive only for the length of time it takes to do a backup and disconnect.

  2. Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Extreme Gold Edition Boxed set with free autographed Trading Cards featuring Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer among others and a lifetime subscription to Thurrott’s weekly Tips and Fixes Newsletter.

  3. Does anyone else have crashing problems in Safari when clicking on the link???

    I’ve crashed 3 times, when I try to click on the link. I start reading the article, and then *boom* it’s closed.

    I’m going to try again for the 4th time after I submit this…
