It had to happen. First, Apple launches Mac OS X Snow Leopard. Then, a few weeks later, Microsoft launches the long-awaited Windows 7. ComputerWorld’s Smackdown declares a clear winner.
Clear? Not at first, at least until you traverse all 10 pages of detail to get to the summary conclusion, which is more perspective than analysis or feature comparison.
My final verdict in this smackdown? It’s not even close: Snow Leopard is the better OS.
Sadly, this is another example of technology journalism in the 21st century. At least Michael DeAgonia came to the correct conclusion.
