Mac OS X Tiger Release

Today is the official release of Mac OS X 10.4, aka Tiger. Some reviews came out in the NYT and WSJ yesterday, and they were glowing.

  • Wall Street Journal – Tiger Leaps Out in Front
    Mossberg writes, “Overall, Tiger is the best and most advanced personal computer operating system on the market, despite a few drawbacks. It leaves Windows XP in the dust… It also adds to the Mac’s general superiority over typical Windows computers as the best choice for average consumers doing the most common computing tasks.”
  • New York Times – From Apple, a Tiger to Put in Your Mac
    Pogue writes, “Tiger is the classiest version of Mac OS X ever and, by many measures, the most secure, stable and satisfying consumer operating system prowling the earth.”
  • Ars Technica – Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger
    This is the most in-depth review of Mac OS X you will find anywhere. Ars Technica digs in deep, with 21 full pages of analysis. Siracusa writes, “Tiger is the best version of Mac OS X yet. It offers substantial improvements over Panther in all important areas. The performance improvements are immediately noticeable. Every major bundled application has been improved. There’s an unprecedented number of substantial, totally new features and technologies: Spotlight, Core Image and Video, Quartz 2D Extreme, Dashboard, and Automator, just to name a few.”
