Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger in April


March 14, 2005 12:28 AM PST

We should all be happy nerds in April if Apple releases Tiger in April. I was secretly hoping that Microsoft's XP x64 release in April would move Apple forward, and if this rumor is true, my last barrier to ordering the "mini" will be gone in April. Still unclear about the price structure of XP x64, but bundling Tiger with the Mini is a savings of $129 over buying a Mini today and upgrading.

I wrote "April" five six times in this post.

The Automater looks sweet. I put this item on my OS wish list a few months ago and I'm now amazed that my wish is coming true.

Ok, AutomaTOR, sorry.

J: The other barrier to getting a Mini will be the "one-button-mouse-only" port on it.

Actually, you're not that far off... I'll need to figure out how to get mac an PC working harmoniously with a KVM that supports DVI and USB KBD/Mouse. 5 button mouse!

There are going to be many frustrations with mini-mac itself, such as one global menubar, the fact that you can close all program windows and still have stuff running, etc. But these aren't barriers to buying... Just perhaps barriers to migrating fully to using the mini.

Amazon has a $35 mail in rebate for Tiger.

I've waited for tiger to buy a mini. Now I wait for new mini to run tiger. :-)

200+ new features in Tiger. Looks like this is a pretty nice OS release. If CoreImage actually runs on the Mini, that will be a sweet machine!

My understanding is that the Core* stuff is an API like DirectX... it will choose the best render path or CPU or GPU.
