    Apple OS X 10.4 review from PC Magazine:

    A nice read and evaluation from the Windows centric site and magazine. Overall, their review is highly positive and worth reading. Items reviewed includes but is not limited to the following:

    - Spotlight
    - Dashboard
    - Safari (good comments about private browsing and security)
    - iChat AV
    - Mail
    - Automator

    Here's the link: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1811493,00.asp

    There's a goofy error in the review (emphasis mine):

    Shouldn't "yclept" be "called" or "named"?

    PC Mag has gotten more Mac-friendly in recent days, so seeing something like this from them comes as no big surprise to me.

    Its not "Pro-Windows," its a computer magazine - by far the best.

    It gave every iPod 5 stars and the Mac mini 4.5/5... they are VERY fair.

    They're trying to butter Apple up so they can port it to the PC. I think even PC users are sick of Windows now! Who can blame them though!?
    However, if Apple had to support all that un-guaranteed hardware, I'm sure even OS X would be struggling!

    No mention of the awesomely fun Quartz Composer. A fair review, but they obviously didn't take the time to fully play with all the neato, somewhat hidden stuff... updated iSync, iCal, Graphing calculator... etc.

    "Yclept" is a perfectly good word. Underused, in my opinion. :)

    Although more "au courant" in the days of Chaucer

    And of the esy fir, and smart also,
    Which that was maad, and of the care and wo
    That we hadde in oure matires sublymyng,
    And in amalgamyng and calcenyng
    Of quyksilver, yclept mercurie crude?
    For alle oure sleightes we kan nat conclude.

    Thanks plinden! An article like that seems like a strange place to use a Middle English word, though, that people like me probably won't know about.

    Good read!

    I guess the editor didn't read into the support and or other forums too well. If they were a frequent reader of Macrumors, they would know a super easy way to keep 1 widget on the desktop, and a slightly more complicated way to have multiple :)

    The only issue is, the widget will stay on top no matter what :(
