Ars: Panther is $130 investment into Mac\'s future

updated 10:00 am EST, Mon November 10, 2003

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."

    Nice reviews but...

    He really should understand that his view of the perfect OS is not the be all and end all. His view of metadata is just not going to happen. He should accept that.

    However, I do enjoy reading his reviews. He goes to great depths and gives reasons for all of his opinions, whether or not I agree with all of them. Some I do, some I don't.

    Two things still missing

    1. Apple menu (and yes I use FruitMenu), but want an OS level Apple Menu.
    2. Allow users to put the Trashcan on the desktop.

    Great!

    A $130 Million Dollar investment in c***. The mouse still does not work. You still have to wait. OSX still crashes big time. Apple is a bunch of total incompetant liars.

    This OS sucks!

    Åpple desperately needs a new CEO or it will fail next year.

    re: Great!

    Dude, you WAY over paid. The rest of us can get Panther for less than $130. At $130 million, you got majorly ripped off.

    The only upgrade worth...

    paying for so far.

    Unlike Jaguar, Panther actually includes most of the features that were present in OS 9, so it actually qualifies itself as an 'upgrade', unlike Jaguar.

    re: upgrade worth

    well, it was "worth it" if you had bought 10.0 or 10.1. if you've been hanging onto mac os 9 thi slong and are now jumping on the os x bandwagon, i do not envy the learning curve you are about to hit.
