    Ok, so people are doubting Snow Leopard because of the whole "no new features" thing. Here's a simple car-based analogy to help make it understandable.

    OS X Leopard:

    It's fast, it's sexy but it's not the best. We love it but it has it's flaws, and it's not the best it could be.

    But now Apple is taking a year off to polish it's car, and refine it... and this is what it has...


    OS X Snow Leopard:

    A refined, sexy, polished, smooth car that runs like a dream and is as fast as thunder. It's smaller, thinner, and no doubt more impressive. This one's for the showroom, folks.


    In the meantime...

    Windows XP

    and Windows Vista

    They'll keep trying but they'll never get there ;)

    (ok, the last bit was a joke, but you get what I'm saying with the first bit, right?)

    Personally, I'd reverse those 2 windows pictures....XP was at least good, easy to use and stable.... After 3 months with Vista, I switched to a Mac ;)

    (In that case, I should actually thank MS that they forced me to buy something GOOD instead of "what everybody else has" :))

    Personally, I can't wait for OS X 10.8: Blinx (a time traveling cat)

    Yeah I agree with Gokyu. I liked XP way better than Vista. I searched "crysis" on the start menu search thingy and it found nothing. I tried the same thing on my XP and the search found it but it was still hard bring up the search application. :p

    i think this works better because
    its not a whole new car

    fyi f430 top and f430 scuderia bottom

    and for windows
    xp
    [​IMG]

    vista
    [​IMG]


    xp is def a civic, great car, works well, and the second is what i think of vista
    as i used it for 2 hours trying to get battlefield 2 to work, and i got so frustrated with all the security things and that you have to change the second you install it.

    i mean, you just installed it, and you want me to change setting already because it can not run without me doing it?

    edit: sry about the image sizes, i have not been on here in a while and forgot what you are supposed to put so it comes out a small image.

    Snow Leopard's main point (what we know so far) is that it runs more efficiently. A better analogy might be something like the Nissan (Skyline) GT-R, which runs pretty damn quick and runs on a turboed six (compared to what? a 10 or 12 cylinder exotic?).

    The Delorean is a actually good analogy for Vista. Looks pretty, imitates the exotics, but is damn slow, inefficient, and unreliable.

    Actually the car at the bottom is a 360 Challenge Stradale. So Snow Leopard is going to be an older model of Leopard???

    You'd think somebody with the Ferrari logo as an avatar would know better...

    That poor little G20. What an eyesore.

    The more I think about Snow Leopard the more I'm excited for it. I remember the days of OS8 and super-snappy GUI's. Let's bring some of that back eh?

    So, Vista is a Ferrari and Leopard is the Nintendo Wii car? Are you serious? :confused:

    I was lucky enough to see a Murcielago in a parking garage when I was in Munich a few years back... *drools*

    I was a little hesitant about paying for what would seem to be a minor update, but it looks like they're putting in ZFS as the new filesystem...I'm in for sure :D:apple:

    wow really? We see lots of them here in Toronto, probably as popular if not more than the Mini Cooper. It's just called the Smart Car and it's a sub division (or something) of Mercedes.
