Every attraction needs a barker
John Siracusa opines on what “Top Secret” features Leopard might contain and why Apple has embargoed them.
It’s a good read but the Macalope has noticed that despite the scowls of concern over the inconsistency and “unprofessional” look of OS X from many “professional” Mac pundits, it still manages to pull off the one thing it needs to: looking better than any other desktop operating system.
That’s not to say that the Macalope wouldn’t also like to see some things dressed up, a new coat of paint, some curtains, or that Apple won’t certainly provide us something in the eye candy category that will make Vista heads turn.
But the cluck-clucking of the old hens doesn’t seem to have stopped OS X’s market share from creeping up.
Also, Siracusa neglects to mention perhaps the simplest explanation for the embargo.
Everyone loves a mystery and it sure helps get the asses in the seats.
