Long-Awaited Leopard Hits the Shelves

Apple's Leopard has arrived. Reviewers are pleased with Mac OS X 10.5. BBC News quotes tech writer Walt Mossberg as calling it "evolutionary, not revolutionary." Mossberg also notes,

I believe it builds on Apple's quality advantage over Windows. In my view, Leopard is better and faster than Vista, with a set of new features that make Macs even easier to use.

The story says fellow tech columnist David Pogue wrote of Leopard, "Happy surprises, and very few disappointments, lie around every corner."


Among the things that they like: Stacks, which automatically groups related files together on the desktop, and Spaces, which allows users to maintain different desktops for different tasks.


One observer quoted in the piece says Leopard offers enough to convince disappointed Windows Vista users to make the Mac switch. He also predicts that Leopard sales will double those of its predecessor, code-named Tiger.
