In an Apple style world, Apple no longer has a unique product to sell. That is the problem.
New features since 10.6 are so minor that they would scarcely qualify as a single point release back in the days of 10.2 or 10.3.  Those were big bumps in usability and features, back then.  Today?  I'd call it maybe perceptible, but given that Apple is the most powerful hype machine globally, that's an impossible thing to really test.  I use Parallels, SAS, Adobe, FCP, Office 2011, Stata among my regular tools.  I'm happy.  Maybe 10.8 has a new feature or two; don't...
10.6 was a meaningful upgrade over 10.4. I suppose 10.8 is fine. But get real, nothing has really changed since 10.6. Nothing that matters, anyway. And that's fine - but the notion of upgrading these days is devoid of really any meaning.

LOL.  Streamlined?  Can someone tell me why Apple has a Macbook Air 13, and a Macbook Pro Retina 13 Flash?  And a Macbook Pro 13?  All with different screen sizes?
This is exactly like FCP X.  Apple had to make a move.  Historically, Apple's v1.0 products are NEVER good.  It's not supposed to be good.  It is a strategic move for Apple Inc.  Of course, legacy systems such as Windows XP are much more reliable and developed.  That is the advantage of using old, legacy products!  Sometimes they work great.     Apple will fix this Maps app like they always do.  Right now the people piling on are the sheeple.  This is the same old...
Although some people have illnesses, hunger, death and the like, I am so goddamn frustrated by the orientation requirement on Apple and other cords.  Sometimes I think life isn't worth living this way.
Apple seems to be taking the right approach.   Experimentally, we know from records and articles from that time that iPhone and iPad were original, contrarian designs that Apple alone introduced and popularized.  We know it because key players all ridiculed the design and told Apple it was stupid.  This proves their self development story is a fraud, crafted to justify an illegal pirating of Apple's design.  By mocking the design at intro time, Apple peers...
