Slashdot notes Rave Reviews for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. druid_getafix writes “The first mass market reviews of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger are trickling in with a big thumbs up for the release. Walt Mossberg of the WSJ says ‘Tiger Leaps Out in Front’ but complains about slowness of some applications – notably Mail. David Pogue of NYT says ‘But with apologies to Mac-bashers everywhere, Spotlight changes everything. Tiger is the classiest version of Mac OS X ever and, by many measures, the most secure, stable and satisfying consumer operating system prowling the earth.’ In related news Mossberg also covers the rising incidence of spam/virii in the Windows world and says ‘…consider dumping Windows altogether and switching to Apple’s Macintosh…’. Previous reviews of Tiger were covered on /. earlier.”
