Everybody Loves Tiger

Crusty old farts show the new OS much love ...

The big day is just a few hours away ... and the impending release of Tiger has excited even the stodgiest of stodgy old computer farts. Walter Mossberg has even gone so far as to pry himself out of his moss-covered easy chair and write a rambling yet worthy piece in this morning's Wall Street Journal - mostly good reading, and one that fairly examines both the good (lotsa good) and the potentially bad (if you have an older Mac like a G3 desktop or an original iMac you probably want to wait a few months for Tiger). The part where he couldn't figure out "Automator" is pretty sad, though ... the average 8-year old can craft Automator scripts, since it is literally just dragging icons and arrows to show where you want your data to go.

Meanwhile, on the op-ed front, the ink-stained wretches at the New York Times are positively giddy over the imminent arrival of their copies of Tiger ... who knew?
