Mac OS X Public Beta reviewed

— 11:24 PM on October 3, 2000

For those of you who, like me, were dazzled by OS X, Ars Technica's John Siracusa has "blown up" and written a good review of the ins and out of the public beta—Unix with a human face, or so I thought. Looks like the price of having such a delicious UI is lots of bugs, and as a long-time Mac user, his conclusions are not entirely favorable. Man, are all Mac users nitpickers?

Be warned, this article is long (16 pages) but it is as comprehensive a review as there is out there (at least up until today). Moreover, he got to use the sweet 22" Apple Cinema Display. Oh, why doesn't that happen here? Have patience as they seem to be having some server problems, which appear to be commonplace these days.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
