Apple’s latest operating system release may be the most troublesome since Apple switched from its System operating system to the BSD Unix and Mach-based Mac OS X.
I have never heard so many complaints about a Mac OS upgrade. Back in 2000/2001 when Apple users were switching from its older System operating system to the BSD Unix-based Mac OS X, I also heard many a die-hard Mac user cursing at the changes. Then, however, everyone knew that there was going to be real trouble. After all, this wasn’t just an upgrade—both the software and hardware were moving from one operating system to another.
Leopard’s (Mac OS X 10.5’s) problems have shocked the Mac user community. Most Mac users would have agreed with me that Leopard wasn’t supposed to be a major step forward. Instead, it was going to be many small steps forward for the Mac. Well, that was the idea. It’s turned out to be a major step backward.
