    Why does this not surprise me? I've been on these forums for almost one year (I registered on June 6, 2003) and I've seen many posters guess that Apple would slow down the pace of Mac OS X updates. In fact, I was one of those people expecting Apple to slow down.

    IMHO, I consider this good news. A once per year update tells me that they are trying to rush things. Rushing anything causes problems and also would keep Apple from implementing major features. Example: it would be hard to expect revolutionary changes in Tiger if they released the OS exactly one year after Panther.

    That and I'm wondering if Panther bit them in the butt with the number of bugs that were found after release some quite critical. I'm hoping Apple shoots for Spring\Summer of '05 for the release of Tiger and then another revamp, Lynx?, in Fall of '06 after longhorn is released to bitchslap it into place with new features that longhorn won't have.

    As long as Apple keep up the good work with these cool features then they can take as long as they need :)

    With M$ Longhorn I really hope for their sake (like I actually care :D ) that they have something more to offer if there are releasing this new OS in 2007

    Good News

    This is good news. An 18-24 month cycle is probably more reasonable for a mature OS.
