Ars posts Panther review
Ars-technica's John Siracusa has written his , concluding: "This is nothing to be ashamed of, but the other side of the coin is that many of the year-old complaints also still apply: unpolished corners of the user interface, the Finder, the metadata situation, and even user interface responsiveness (to some degree) are all still issues in Panther. But I do think the overall rate of improvement is accelerating; it's just not distributed quite the way I would like. As with Jaguar, many problems can be overcome or avoided with the help of third party software. Like Jaguar before it, it is nearly impossible to recommend against upgrading to Panther."
