I was quite surprised when I heard Apple was planning a preview of Mac OS 10.4 in June, since Panther only got off the ground this past November. But that's what Apple is always doing to us: "surprising". So I started to wonder to myself, with a huge upgrade like Panther, what more could Apple be ready with in less than a 12 months time to merit another "assumed" $130 upgrade cost? With such short time, I was almost ready to think of the possibility of Tiger becoming one of the least significant of the last 4 revisions. But I'm going to boldly surmise the possibility of Tiger becoming the most important update since Jaguar. It seems to me that Apple may take this opportunity to finally bolster the core components of the operating system. After taking the last couple releases to play catchup with features (user switching, features from OS 9), I think they are going to be some important revisions to core system technologies. Because as of right now, the system is busting at the seams with features, what we need now is more responsiveness, and a faster workflow. I expect them to tackle the sluggish UI problem head on with Tiger. Maybe even a Cocoa Finder. But naturally, I also presume there will be another boat load of amazing features, but probably not to the extent we saw in Panther. That's my take on it anyway. Does anyone else feel this way?
