Leopard Service Pack 2 Coming

OS X 10.5.2 is coming with weight of, oh ~450mb.  I think you can call that a service pack and not so much of a minor release.  Props to Apple for turning around 100 major bug fixes in a short period of time but doesn’t that really mean the OS was released before it was ready? 

I’m one of the few people who don’t mind buggy software as long as they release often.  Why don’t I mind?  Well, software development is hard, really hard.  Across platforms or cross browsers or even across versions of 1 type of OS.  I’ve felt the pain, and certainly caused it.  But one piece of software that can’t be buggy is the OS itself.  It effects everything.  A buggy OS can make you life miserable, see Windows 98 and apparently OS X 10.5.0.  Vista on the other hand isn’t buggy but slow, I know, I’ve used it for over 1 year now.  Buggy or Slow, not a good choice.

  1. I comprehend that on the off chance that I introduce Windows XP, I require Service Pack 2. My Windows XP cd doesn’t accompany Service Pack 2 and I’m considering how to continue without it. after I get my imac . Additionally , how does Boot Camp vary from Parallels?

  2. Great info! I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have.

  3. I totally agree with what you have said that software development is really hard! That is why we should appreciate the great effort software developers are exerting in order to provide us with a decent software. From your post I can see that you have experienced already the amount of hard work you should put on when creating your own software. Wonderful post! You are very genuine with your post, I hope you can make more and I am looking up to it!

  4. My brother worked as a software developer before but it didn’t took long before he has decided that he wanted to pursue a different career. I could see from the amount of stress that he was experiencing before that this kind of work is really hard. Actually. in my opinion software development might be one of the most stressful jobs out there. I am glad though that my brother have already found his passion and it is non-other than to be a game developer.
