don't you just love it?

Unix rock solid rock stability, performance, security and flexibility.
Micro Kernel Architecture.
Beautiful Aqua interfase 100% customizable because it's PDF based.

it's got everything!! it has what geeks want, it has what designers and artists want.

weak spots?

not much games for it.
lack of a lot of cool nifty apps for Windows.

Um.....Ya, I do love it! I'm not very high tech, but that's one of the reasons I love Apple so much: I don't need to be!! the interface meets me right where I am in my understanding, and many hours of pleasant computing result.

I *did* also purchace Tiger: The Missing Manual.. by David Pogue and little by little am learning more stuff.

Now I just need to figure out if it is worth it (for me) to get Leopard.....anyone?

Leopard comes out on Friday, and I am beyond excited!

Macrina, it is DEFINITELY worth it! It's $20 off from Amazon (I believe), with a ton of new and updated features:

Apple - Mac OS X Leopard - Features

Just read it...I'm drooling for it already!

Quite I think Leopard shall be. However, I've waited this long, will wait a few more moon cycles before acquiring it - too many past 'problems/issues' with the "first" models off the floor, ya know? I'll let the others be the guinea cats on this, thank you very much... Seriously, Tiger is stable and great, ahead of any so called competition [], but Leopard will be [if true to what has been said so far] massively awesome.

I'm with you Shadow....I'm going to hold off for a bit and see what happens

That being said I'm not a techie in any sense of the word....and just could never seem to catch on to some of the windows stuff....it seemed sooooo much harder than what it needed to be. I bought a Mac 2 years ago, and I can't tell you how quickly I went from feeling like a complete idiot about my computer to feeling like I could do anything I wanted! Amazing.....I've kept up with all the updates, and except for some strange glitch with one of the ITunes updates (it was later corrected, can't remember what it was now) I've never been happier!

Major OSX lover here, Unix is so powerful, but honestly I never really need it unless I want to kill a process or something (Activity Monitor will do the same).

Mac Os X is great for everyone, from a 3 yr old kid, everyday non-technical user to a Software Engineer.

It just works.

Post . . .

I'm with you, Molly & Shadow: going to wait for awhile on Leopard. Actually am still getting acclimated to Tiger, having come the far distance from 9.5.2
And you know? for my uses, I don't know if I'll need Leopard, though I might want it...
