For Apple Macintosh aficionados any major update to the operating system is received like the second coming of Jesus H. Christ. I know I get down on my knees and give thanks. Ok, hyperbole aside, since iPod, Apple has been on a roll and well, as a bonafide fan I am a few degrees shy of entering a giddy spell knowing that on April 29, “TIGER,” the new operating system will be released to the public. The upgrades are usually better, slicker and more efficient than the last version. I could stick with “Panther” or cough up the $129 to move on up to “Tiger” [or Wombat or any other silly animal that creeps into your psyche].
I know the majority world uses Intel-based PCs. Fine by me. I have been using a Apple Macintosh system for almost 20 years and I am not about to give up on the company just because it lacks the majority market share that Microsoft’s clunky OS basks in. For designers and photographers worldwide, the Apple Macintosh has come to symbolize style, elegance, simplicity and efficiency. For me, you can add – pleasure.
Tiger’s new features are a boon. I look forward to seeing them all in action. Make the switch today [if you are in the majority] .
