“In late 2006, I switched from a PC to the Mac as my primary computer on a lark, assuming it would be a three-month period of frustration. It wasn’t. In fact, I was immediately impressed by the simplicity of the Mac UI and the reliability of the operating system. My thinking began to change, the trial period stretched on, and I settled on OS X as my primary operating system.
Leopard’s release comes at about the one-year mark for me as a Mac user. What I’ve learned over that year is that there are a handful of minor annoyances related to the Mac way of doing things that Windows handles better. But the advantages of the Mac far outweigh those minor annoyances.
It can be described in a lot of different ways, but it boils down to this: Even in a Windows-centric IT setting, I’m far more productive on the Mac than I was with Windows. During this year, my only tech support call to our IT department came when a routine change was made to my network log-in password, and for some reason neither the old nor the new password would work on the Mac or Windows. It took about five minutes to fix.
Despite any teething pains that accompany almost any OS upgrade, I expect those advantages to continue with Leopard — and the gap between it and Vista to widen.”
