Most of the reviews compare Apple's new Mac OS X Tiger operating system to what Microsoft has shown and talked about for Longhorn, the next version of Windows. In his review the Wall Street Journal's Walter Mossberg makes the Longhorn comparison but also compares Tiger against Windows XP. A highly impressed Mossberg writes,"Tiger adds to the Mac's general superiority over typical Windows computers as the best choice for average consumers doing the most common computing tasks". Apple's hardware already was the best in the business, and Mac OS X has, so far, escaped the virus and spyware problems that plague Windows. It may look little odd to compare,but XP is the Microsoft operating system that will compete against the new Mac OS in the market for the next 18 months, until Longhorn debuts. Overall, Tiger is the best and most advanced personal computer operating system on the market, despite a few drawbacks. It leaves Windows XP in the dust."The new Apple system boasts some key capabilities Microsoft won't introduce for another 18 months or so, Tiger is a beautiful and powerful operating system that advances personal computing. It is a big gain for Mac users right out of the box. If Apple can wring out the delays, it will be a home run.
