There Apple. They have incredible magic! :D

I'd like to hear what it's going to offer before I get too excited :)

Ya, I'm quite curious as to what the difference will be. I just ordered my 1.5ghz PowerBook. I'm slightly upset there is a OS update coming soon, but oh well. I guess these updates are just something I will have to get use to.

Hopefully it is 64bit enabled

Well they just announced it that doesnt mean its ready for shipping or anything...heck there haven't even been any leaks of the betas online yet.

I wouldn't expect this out in 2004

rman 05-05-2004 12:38 PM

I would hazard a guess of late 2004, early 2005.

Murlyn 05-05-2004 01:56 PM

yeah my guess is early 2005

I think Apple should stop releasing updates so soon, since it's obvious they're just trying to cash in on minor changes. Take Panther for instance, was there really THAT much improvement over Jaguar? Heck no. The itunes-like interface is nicer, the fast user switching is admittedly neat, The OS is supposedly stable, but then so was Jaguar, file vault is buggy so nobody even uses it, anybody who really needs to fax owns a fax machine, and the F9-11 buttons are uselful, but not worth the $100+ to upgrade. Not to mention the fact that constant upgrades make many programs like Norton Systemworks 2003 or Disk Warrior 3.0 unable to boot from the CD. Look at Windows 2000 or Win XP. Those are lasting forever. Apple needs to learn a thing or two from Microsoft when it comes to this.

"Innovation never sleeps?" Please, more like "we're going to add a couple useless tweaks to your OS and make you dish out another Benjamin."

Win2k to WinXP was a $300 move. Was it really worth it?
Oh yeah! Fun fruity colors!

Yeah, $300 to move from an OS to another OS that's lasted over 3 years. $100 twice a year with Macs though? Do the math.

How is that 100 bucks twice a year?
