Ironically, some of the people who claim they have always been Apple supporters now start yelling strange quoutes like “Apple is no longer for the elite!” and that kind of stuff. I think we should learn from the open source community to share and to be happy when people finally believe in what we believe in. Those supporters should be happy people are now converting to MACs instead of other platforms not finding it hard that they no longer have a unique machine! That’s a bit selfish don’t you think? I mean if I believe in something I want the whole world to know its the best.
Anyways, I have not been an Apple supporter for long I have been against the idea for so long. Now things have changed a bit, the new Leopard has really some cool features that need a closer look. The return on investment for getting a Macbook or Macbook pro is becoming much higher than old days where in my opinion MACs had some major problems mostly in their OS. Being a Computer Security expert I can say that Leopard is a huge step forward. I have to mention though that new Trojans can get to your machine if you do not install the latest security fixes which you should on any OS.
Things I’d like Apple to do to have a competing standalone OS are not much but include:
1) Making installing OS X on a non Apple machine legal. Since the OS can compete now in the market and people who cannot afford to pay for a MAC might be willing to pay for just the OS.
2) Stop focusing on looks and start going into deeper more beneficial things like going Microkernel Architecture or enhancing their Server software.
3) Make third party application developers introduce their updates through the software updater tool.
4) More freedom tuning kernel level programs.
To conclude this post I am really happy Apple is becoming more and more of a major threat to the giant Microsoft. Now with one step up with the introduction of Vista. They just need to address various user types more and know that Google is just is not sitting and watching and that Performance is Google’s game. I think I can finally say that I am glad I own a MAC .
