What’s New in Tiger

Mac OS X 10.4, affectionately known as Tiger, only builds on the successes of previous Mac OS X versions. You still don’t have to worry about viruses, spyware, or Service Pack releases that take up a Saturday afternoon to install and fine-tune. And you’ll still enjoy stability that would make the you of 1999 positively drool; your Mac may go for months or years without a system crash.

That’s because underneath the gorgeous, translucent desktop of Mac OS X is Unix, the industrial-strength, rock-solid OS that drives many a Web site and university. It’s not new by any means; in fact, it’s decades old, and has been polished by generations of programmers. That’s the very reason Steve Jobs and his team chose it as the basis for the NeXT operating system (which Jobs worked on during his twelve years away from Apple), which Apple bought in 1997 to turn into Mac OS X.
