If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then Snow Leopard’s performance report depends on who you talk to. ZDNet’s Adrian Kingsley-Hughes:
Over the past few days I’ve been keeping a close eye on the Apple support forums and while there are plenty of issues being raised by folks who have made the switch, there doesn’t seem to be any sign of any serious issues plaguing this latest OS release.
There are a whole raft of applications that either flat out don’t work, or just don’t work right… its hard to tell who’s to blame here. Have developers had enough time with the 10.6 code to ensure compatibility, or are developers getting lazy and choosing to wait until the OS is out before working out the kinks?
Before Snow Leopard made it out the door, Kingsley-Hughes was blasting Apple’s new kitty as untested.
At least Microsoft makes betas and release candidate versions of new operating systems available for everyone to be able to test.
Yes, and that worked out so well for Windows Vista, which, as I recall, was smooth sailing for Microsoft’s reluctant customers, right? Or, not. How do guys like him find work?
