Apple - Mac: Mac OS X 10.4 'Tiger' in depth
OS X I've been running Mac OS X 'Tiger' since the day after its release, on 29 April. At the time, hundreds of reviews of the operating system were published, but I didn't want to be a part of the herd, since many of them were little more than lists of the new features. I wanted to spend some more time with Tiger before getting off the fence.

Over the coming weeks, I'll be looking at 10.4's new features in depth, and exploring what Apple's done with some of the older components that have been evolving right from Mac OS X's Public Beta release, such as AppleScript, and the utilities bundled with the system software.

Apple - Mac: OSS on OS X
OS X Apple recently released Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger, the latest update to the flagship operating system. Featuring developer-oriented features such as Core Data under the hood, the Unix-based Tiger and the introduction of powerful yet increasingly cost-effective Mac hardware is enticing many a curious Linux enthusiast to prowl over to the nearest Apple Store and get their paws on a Mac.

And while the Mac OS opens up a world of elegant interface design and commercial software unseen on the Linux desktop, lacking out of the box is the plethora of open source software to which we are so accustomed. Luckily, a growing community of open source developers and advocates has been working since the birth of the platform to bring free software to Mac OS X.

Apple - Mac: Opinion: Apple's captivating Tiger
OS X The fifth major release of Apple’s server operating system, Mac OS X Server version 10.4 (Tiger) has many new features like 64-bit memory addressing, built-in VPN, Software Update and Jabber server, as well as very cool and useful new technologies like spotlight (whole disk and document searching tool) and Automator (graphical data analysis pipelining tool).

However, it’s the claim that Tiger Server is “open source made easy” that I wish to investigate here. Just how “open” and “easy” it is?

Apple - Mac: Mac Tiger OS reviewed
OS X So is Tiger any good? Yes, it’s worth the upgrade from Panther. It does everything that Windows XP does, and in many cases it does it better, or simpler, or faster...The search technology has the potential to really change the way we use the computer. Dashboard, along with Expose introduced in Panther, has the potential to add a lot of efficiency to screenspace and working methods.

The underlying technology, being Unix based, has all the stability and predictablility that you would expect. For most Mac users, Tiger won’t be the revolution that they were perhaps lead to expect. For Windows users, it adds a couple of jawdrops that just highlight how behind the times WinXP is right now.

Apple - Mac: Tiger Server Roars, Too
OS X Windows users accessing files or applications on Tiger Server would see the same permissions they would have on any Windows server.

And since Apple doesn't charge for CALs (client access licenses), an Apple box running Tiger Server could do the same job as a Windows 2003 system for hundreds or thousands of dollars less.

Apple - Mac: Ars Technica Reviews Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger
OS X So convinced was I of the inevitability of the Mac OS X yearly release juggernaut that I never even considered the possibility that relief from the $129-per-year Mac OS X tax might come in the form of an extra six-month wait for version 10.4. "Let's do this again next year" were my exact words at the end of the Panther review.

Apple - Mac: Apple Goes 64-Bit with Tiger Release of OS X
OS X Luckily for Apple, IBM planned for the PowerPC and later Power architectures to support a native 32-bit mode inside a fuller 64-bit processor, allowing for hybrid processing that allowed certain code to run in 32-bit mode without modification and other code to run in 64-bit mode if it was recompiled to take advantage of the extended memory addressing.

So, for instance, Apple could recode the memory management features of Panther and give it a larger memory space to play in. However, with Tiger, the operating system is a true 64-bit environment, top to bottom, and now software vendors creating applications can reach down into the 64-bit PowerPC processors in those Apple systems and make use of the 64-bit processing the hardware has.

Apple - Mac: Mossberg suggests Macs to WSJ readers
OS X Walter Mossberg writes about "a digital crime wave" afflicting PCs connected to the Internet in his latest Wall Street Journal article. "The Windows computing platform is in a genuine crises," writes Mossberg. "Windows computers are being attacked, every day, by an international army of digital criminals who seek to spy on users, turn their own computers against them and deface, corrupt or destroy their data."

To safeguard from viruses and spyware -- "which can track your activities, bombard you with unwanted ads, even steal your identity" -- Mossberg suggests switching to the Mac platform for users "totally fed up with the security crisis." According to Mossberg, "Macs have better hardware, a better operating system and better bundled software than Windows PCs

OS X I spent some time over at Apple yesterday taking a closer look of their new OS known as Tiger or Mac OS 10.4 I had seen it at MacWorld in January and was pretty impressed with the demo then, but seeing it up close and personal yesterday made it clear to me that Apple is light years ahead of Microsoft when it comes to developing PC operating systems,"

Tim Bajarin writes for Technology Pundits. "There are a lot of new features in Tiger, including a much more powerful Safari Browser, a much better email client and something called the Automator, which is a simplified scripting system that quickly and easily can automate repetitive tasks.
