Snow Leopard smells like Vista
Written by Gordon Fecyk, 10/21/2009
I'VE BEEN CHEATED out of two years of the great Microsoft Windows Experience. No client, no employer, no family members let me play with Windows Vista. And here I am, sitting on the night before the release of Windows 7, playing with...
MacOS X Snow Leopard.
Seriously, anyone can take a PC and cram Windows 7 into it. But it takes a real geek to take a PC, and cram the impossible into it. I figure, hey, they didn't let me play with Vista, they won't let me play with Windows 7, so I'll go play with a pretend Macintosh.
Big mistake. Why would I shoe-horn an operating system on a PC that doesn't even work right on a real Mac?
To top that all off, Apple's gone out of its way to "blacklist" bad Mac software. Major Mac vendors -- bread-and-butter vendors that are the life blood of the Macintosh -- are crying foul over the new OS. Microsoft Office 2008 runs just fine, so what's Adobe's problem?
Windows users went through this two years ago with Vista, only then everyone blamed Microsoft. Today, who's blaming Apple? It makes me wonder why so much effort goes into making this thing run on non-Macs. From a network admin standpoint, even Vista runs better.
Oh, and after two and a half years, still no Vista viruses.
