Tiger Installed

1 minute read

I’ve got Mac OS X Tiger installed on the 12″ Powerbook and the MDD G4 Powermac. Let me tell you, it’s awesome. It’s fast and even more multitasking capable (if that’s even really possible). I have a few quick thoughts this morning. I’ll have a much more complete analysis of Spotlight tonight.

Spotlight may be more like LaunchBar than I originally thought. It served as a decent replacement until I got LaunchBar installed. However, it isn’t quite the same because it groups by kind and it doesn’t indicate location. That’s bad because when I do a search for a certain application, Spotlight is currently bringing up duplicates that exist on my Panther backup.

Dashboard looks great. The Flickr picture upload widget will likely make documenting features in the coming days completely trivial. I’ll have to play with it some more to see how much it actually helps me.

.Mac Sync was an immediate boon. I set up my email accounts on the Powerbook and upon finishing installation on the Powermac, it magically had those email accounts configured and ready. I no longer have to worry about maintaining two independent sets of rules (which is extremely painful). This could fast become my favorite feature.

That’s all I’ve got for now.
