ONE FOR ALL, AND ALL FOR 1 (10.1, THAT IS)
I've spent some considerable time in Mac OS X lately. In fact, since installing 10.1 I have now turned the corner and am spending more time running Mac OS X than Mac OS 9.
In case you haven't made the jump yet, here are all the reasons you may want to consider it:
- Faster performance. Applications launch faster - as much as three times as fast in some cases. The Finder is also snappier. Menus respond quicker and windows resize faster. All of this may not have much effect on actual machine performance - in other words, whatever is cranking away on your machine will still take just as long to crank, but while its cranking away you won't be frustrated playing around in other applications.
- System Preferences are much easier to use. They have been organized into logical sections, and many can now place a status icon in your menu bar, near the right corner. Check out the Keyboard Preferences: you can now use your keyboard to control menus, access the dock, cycle through windows and more.
