Apple said yesterday that it would begin selling the fifth version of its Macintosh OS X operating system on April 29. The program, which is named Macintosh OS X 10.4 Tiger and which will sell for US$129, has a variety of consumer-oriented features and some new internal technologies, including enhanced graphics support and increased ability to handle memory as well as improved compatibility with Microsoft's Windows operating system.
Are you kidding - OSX the OS that is STABLE, has no exploitable holes, NO Virus, no spyware issues and has been running 64bit for YEARS, you think that Windows is going to be able to touch OS-X! That is a joke. Look at how long we have been hearing about Longhorn, I will believe it when it is on the shelf. I know I must sound like a Mac addict BUT here is the short of this article.
Apple is going to release Tiger the 5th version of it's OS-X system. Many of the features that you can buy next week in Apple's Tiger may or may not be available to you in OVER 1 year from Microsoft (and they won't work right). By the time Longhorn catches Tiger's abilities, Apple will be 5-10 years beyond the technology.
"The more important issue will be whether Apple will be able to solidify the perception that it has a technological advantage over Microsoft, which is preparing a new version of its Windows operating system, code-named Longhorn, that is reported to have many of the same features as Apple's Tiger program but will not be available until next year."
