The Lost World of Mac OS's

I'm pretty unimpressed with Tiger, so far. The speed bump from Panther (OS 10.3) wasn't near as dramatic as going from Jaguar to Panther, and the added functionality isn't lifting my skirts.
Plus, there's been a couple of annoying bugs. I haven't figured out how to make the iMac running Tiger appear on my network, and there's been some problems with Safari and submitting to webforms that have forced me to switch to Firefox for my online banking.

And now this. (Warning: If you're running 10.4 and Safari, DO NOT click that link.)

This reminds me all-too-much of the problems that ActiveX is causing Microsoft users, and it needs to be changed, now. Allowing programs to download, auto-install and run without user intervention always leads to bad things, no matter how innocous they appear at first. ("Oohh, Aahh, that's how all of this starts, but then later there's the running and screaming." From this movie.)

All I want is the ability to turn off Dashboard. Completely, and from the GUI. I can do it with Konfabulator, I need to have that with Dashboard, too.

All in all, I should have stayed with Panther. This is the worst release of OS X since 10.0.

Still, my worst day on the Mac is STILL better than my best day on Windows. ;-)
