Tiger Day 1

April 30, 2005 at 1:54 pm | Posted in Macintosh | Leave a comment

Like other Mac fans, I did the obligatory trip to a local Mac store at 6pm last night and purchased a copy of Tiger (MacOS X 10.4). After the usual preparations (backup to to an external hard drive and to DVD), the installation went uneventfully – I even managed to take a nap during the install. This time I did an “archive and install” as I did not want to enter all my personal information or unusual OS customizations.

So far so good – the system seems faster (“snappier” as the peanut gallery on the Mac web would say), the font rendering is much better, and I have yet to take advantage of new features such as Spotlight and Dashboard.

Looking through the “new” Yahoo news, I found this photograph, which I thought is very appropriate to show at this time (copyright AP).

In reality, both animals are Jaguars, but one can pretend that one is a Panther and the other cute one is a Tiger 🙂
