Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard: Operating System of the Year

Yep. That’s right.

InfoWorld writes, “Almost nothing is buried for Apple or developers to uncover, while users gain from Apple’s unsurpassed attention to usability and effortless integration from stem to stern. Leopard will change the way you work with computers, entirely for the better.”

You know it’s strange. I try time and again to get some of the hardcore, long-time Windows IT professionals I know to realize that I didn’t switch simply because it’s cool. Like them, I know something good in the IT world when I see it. I knew Windows 95 was special compared to Windows 3.11. I knew Windows NT was special as well. Nevertheless, I also knew Windows ME was… well, Windows ME. All that said, when I gave Mac OS X a good look, I knew there was something special there. I’m pretty sure now I’m not alone. I know other folks who I respect a great deal professionally who I told about OS X. They heard me out, asked me a few smart questions, and then took the leap as well. They seem to be quite satisfied I’m glad to say. Some satisfied enough to buy more than one Mac, and some so satisfied they switched both at home and in their workplace. And then there are some who I’m pretty much writing off now. Who are they? They’re the ones who deride Mac OS X without even having tried it. Now I’m simply employing a skill I’ve learned from a good Viking friend of mine: The Norwegian Silence. ‘Nuff said.

In any case, click here to read why InfoWorld’s Tom Yager gives Apple’s Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard a perfect 10.
