I don't like Spotlight either... especially on my G3 iBook where it's dog slow. But I love Tiger, even though I don't care for Spotlight and Dashboard. It's certainly not enough to make me go back to Panther.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

Apple seems to have this two-steps-forward, one-step-back business model that's frustrating as hell. The Jaguar-to-Panther jump was worth every penny. The biggest feature most most people seem to want at this point is a faster, more stable Finder. Instead they focus on a feature 95% of users have little use for and crow about it like it's the greatest thing since the discovery of fire. Oh yeah, they ripped off a third-party developer in the process. Almost forgot about that one. <br><br>

The idea that "yeah, Apple screwed this up, but at least it's still better than Windows..." isn't what we should have to settle for. Who cares about Windows? The Mac experience should get better and better with NO steps backward or sideward or slantward. As of late, Apple seems to be stalling with new and exciting ideas. And I'm not expecting anything groundbreaking... I mean, what's left to invent in the OS arena? They seem to be tinkering with tried and true features just for the sake of change and a lot of the results aren't really improvements.<br><br>I'm picky cos I'm not the average computer user... if I were, I'd be using Windows.<br><br>
If Apple decided to NOT release a new version of its OS, let's say for 2 years, the bitching would never end. They're always damned if they do, damned if they don't.<br><br>Panther, IMO, is as near a perfect OS as one can expect. While I agree Apple has decided to sell "bells & whistles" as an upgrade, if it wasn't released, there'd be hell to pay.<br><br>Tiger is fun, for those looking for a tickle. And if you make use of Spotlight and Automator, it's pretty damn good. As one of the apparently lucky few, I've had NO issues with Tiger on 3 Macs; MDD, iBook and upgraded B&W in a wired/wireless environment.<br><br>- alec
