Tiger day

Tiger day.
Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger is out today. Amazon says my preordered copy is
“shipping soon”, the bastids.I think this is a very important OS
release, but not necessarily for any of the user-visible features
available right now. Spotlight is an obvious good thing, sure. (And the
Finder finally won't have to poll for directory updates, so it might
seem less mind-bogglingly sluggish.) But the developer features are
going to enable apps to do interesting things. Not right away, but in
the coming months as inspired programmers work on their software. Six
months from now, everything good will require Tiger.So upgrade now, I
say. And check out John Siracusa's review at Ars Technica, which gets
detailed and technical. [Ceejbot]

I have my copy!
