which by the way, would be a sight to see.angelneo said:I hardly think they would be able to come up with 10.5 before vista, unless Microsoft delay Vista release again which most probably will incur the wrath of every windows nerd.
Yes. Also:Sogo said:I don't think 10.5 will come out before vista, on account that Microsoft wants to have a finnished product in August. But delays can happen, and maybe push it back a few more months. I'm willing to get 10.5 in about march ish of 2007, just to give Tiger some life and to give Apple time to get off a good product.
Well the issue is comming out before Vista, which at the momment is shecualed to be finnished by august. 10.5 may, MAY, come out in november or something but I doubt it. MWSF 2007 at the earliest; but thats just me. He did say that, but thats also when vista was schedualed for the 4Q of 2006. Vista has been pused into the 3Q of 2006. Now, these are the manufacturing copies of vista. Vista may not be up for sale untill sept or oct of 2006.Morn said:Hasn't steve gone on and on about Leopard being out around the same time as vista? He said that at wwdc 05 I think. Spring 07 to me seems to be a lot later than that, and I don't think he meant he'd be demoing it around the time windows vista is launched.
The term "Mac OS X" is Apple's name for their next generation OS that replaced the original Mac OS. The X is both a romal numeral for 10 and the "X" of NeXT, which is where the new OS was originally developed. So 10.4 is really Mac OS X version 4, not a point release of Mac OS X 10. And because of the quirky name, there will almost certainly never be an OS XI or OS 11.dops7107 said:Out of curiosity... why should OS X follow the 10.x theme at all? It can't do so indefinitely. Where's OS XI? I wouldn't be surprised if Apple chucks the 10.x line once the Intel transition is complete, and a new generation of OS comes out (even if, effectively, it is just an iteration of OS X - they might as well cal it something different).
There are a couple of reasons, Vista will still have the same bugs/holes/problems as XP and every other Windows release in the past. Just having a "feature" doesn't equal usability. Apple may have a pretty face that everyone wants to copy, but underneath the pretty face is a well thought out UI. Viruses, spyware, security problems won't magically fade away with Vista either.Morn said:The important thing is that Vista has basically the same feature list as tiger, and many windows users are going to be like, well why get os x then?
