"Tiger already has Vista trumped!"5.0 starson by ssmiroldo
Pros: Leopard will be "light-years" ahead of Vista (even without Time Machine ;-)
Cons: Have to wait until Spring 2007. Maybe Apple will release early.
Summary: To offset the unnecessary "1" score an earlier poster made and to make a strong point that the current version of OS X (Tiger) has Vista matched or beat in most areas.
Leopard, in so many areas, is more advanced than Vista, it's not even funny! One primary advantage that all versions of OS X have is the integration with the hardware. Apple has the luxury of creating both the OS AND the hardware. It took me a while to truly see the advantage of this, especially when there are so many criticizing this very fact. Apple can create so much better of a user experience due to the hardware and software integration.
Maybe they'll get away from that more and license their OS to other manufactures due to EFI support. We'll see.
In any case, Leopard is a truly exciting operating system that we haven't even seen the half of. Once Apple divulges the rest of the Leopard feature set and abilities, Vista will be dim in comparison.
