    Talking Have you caught the Tiger :: MAC?

    I haven't yet. I'm not much of a Macintosh person but if you have bought it - what's it like?

    For those of you who are not familiar with this OS -

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Apple Computer has unleashed the Tiger.
    The latest major update of Apple Computer Inc.'s (AAPL.O: Quote, Profile, Research) Mac OS X operating system, code-named Tiger, went on sale around the globe on Friday.

    At a cost of $129 and available at Apple's own retail stores, authorized Apple resellers and on Apple's online store, the upgrade is the fifth major refresh of Mac OS X and includes more than 200 new features.
    The entire article can be read at:

    Earlier this week, Apple rival Microsoft Corp. (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile, Research) , the world's No. 1 software maker, showed off features of Longhorn, the next major release of its Windows operating system and which has been delayed a number of times. It is slated for release in 2006.

    One of our designers is running it on their powerbook.

    Spotlight is very good, but not that many special functions that he likes the most. The speed of the OS seems much better and panther, lot better performance.

    He has seen some bugs in dashboard however, but overall seems really good.
