    Mac 10.1 vs Windows XP

    This won't happen in OS X, and probably not XP. This is a myth. Idle applications aren't allocated resources like they are under Mac OS 9... 100 idle applications are not going to bog you down the way they would under 9 - just a very small footprint.

    Thanks Apple

    Admiral: As with all the Mac OS X releases we've had, 10.1 is Apple's way of saying "here's what we've got done so far"... there is a lot of evidence that some of the features currently in it are not 100% complete. That doesn't mean they'll never be complete.

    Thanks Apple

    Zippygaloo: What makes you say that speed is everything? Just because when you click "ok" on a Photoshop filter and are able to complete that task in .5 seconds less does not make you more productive. The way you work and get things done is what makes you productive. I think Apple is...

    OS X 10.1 complaints... STRAIGHT FROM APPLE

    Maybe the PC in which you were running Flash had a faster video card? Maybe browser plug-ins in general worked better on the browser you had on the PC? Flash came from Director if I'm not mistaken, and I believe Director was originally a Mac program. I don't buy your statements. If...

    Solrac: Why don't you stop and really think about what you are saying before you write? I mean that in a completely unflamatory way (although I guess it doesn't sound it.. better words escape me). There *are* improvements across the entire product line, and dual 800's *will* do things faster...

    Stray: SMB is built into the "connect to server" component of the Mac OS X GUI (if that makes sense). Were you not aware of this?

    OS X 10.1 complaints... STRAIGHT FROM APPLE

    Stray: The SMB client is present and has worked for me... I have heard reports saying that it hasn't worked well (or at all) for some people, but I just thought I'd point out in response to "where is smb support" that it *is* there. As far as your speed complaints, anything specific?

    Solrac: I honestly don't understand your point... would you want Apple to demonstrate on their slowest hardware? I just don't understand why you are upset.

    Finally, Apple steals somthing good from M$

    re: checkbox for clicking on files in a dialog box? What would you call this option if you were Apple? re: resizing windows.. I don't understand. You want to be able to resize any window including dialog boxes?? re: FTP... you're right about Windows Explorer. I wasn't thinking of it as a...

    Finally, Apple steals somthing good from M$

    Solarc: re: file dialog box: what if you're browsing through a directory and accidently replace a file you don't mean to? More abstractions are not good to new users.. just because you are used to this doesn't make it superior... re: two mouse button... most people don't need 2 mice...

    OS X 10.1 complaints... STRAIGHT FROM APPLE

    Why is this post "straight from Apple"?? Why is everybody so Gung-Ho about application bouncing? Sure it's nice to have fast application launches, but just leave the app open and you'll only have to launch it once!
