Mac OS X Tiger – problem city?
We’re pretty OS agnostic at smugmug, and we like it that way. We have customers that use every operating system, so I think it’s wise that smugmug’s employees do the same. So everyone has Windows desktops, Mac OS X laptops, and Linux boxes abound.
I’m the only one who hasn’t upgraded to Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4), though, I think. Everyone else at smugmug jumped at the opportunity and quickly installed. Soon, I heard howls. Turns out that 10.4.0 was quite buggy. (We kept a box or two on Panther for testing, but everyone’s primary laptops were upgraded by their respective owners). Lucky me for not upgrading.🙂
After 10.4.1 came out, the howls went away. Apparently not for everyone, though, as Jeremy Zawodny is having big problems of his own.
I’m dying to upgrade, beacause the geek in me can’t help it, but it sounds like it’s still not worth the hassle. I’ve been telling people for years that Mac OS X is the best OS on the planet, but maybe it’s backsliding a little? Anyone else still having major problems?
