Mac OS X Leopard (10.5)

Mac Leopard (OS X 10.5) logoIn recent years, Apple could almost be described by two things: turtlenecks and iPods. This year, the iPhone was added to the mix, and we saw another addition to their family of felines, Mac OS X 10.5, better known as Leopard. The family of Apple felines has now reached six, starting with Cheetah, moving to Puma, Jaguar, Panther, and Tiger before this latest release. The OS X operating system started the resurgence of Apple, and while it has been over 2 years since a release has been made, many of the over 300 changes will surely go unnoticed by the average user. Touting one of the most impressive interfaces, the latest release has a refined look, revamped apps and new options. While the release doesn’t seem to have the fanfare of Microsoft’s Vista, which recently hit the 88 million unit mark, it should have an impact on Apple through hardware upgrades as well as OS upgrades. For an in-depth look at the new OS, see this article on Computerworld.
