This has to be a record for me – less than 2 hours to write, draw, and ink a strip…
That’s odd! What has your height got to do with anything?
I have read bits of books on similar hoopla (palmistry, astrology, numerology and all that jazz) as a kid: Cheiro seemed fascinating to a high school kid then!
And then I majored in science and passed out of a medical school!
But one’s height as a measure of one’s future: that’s strange! I haven’t seen this before!
This plot seems very intriguing indeed!
Also Happy Vijaya Dashami, a day, in advance! [Today was Saraswati Pooja day! So greetings on that, too!]
Or is it because of the fact that he is a “chhaya” shastri; and hence, he was measuring your shadow?
Either way, this on is a new one for me!
Typo on the last line in my post: I meant this one is a new one for me!
On another note, what does Leopard have that existing Tiger does not? Apart from cosmetic changes?
Far as I can tell, both are Unix shelled with a lovely system theme to boot!
I know Windows users would rather upgrade as Microsoft ceases support for the older OS, the moment the new one is released and ensures that all new software written for Windows shall not run on previous versions without hacks!
I thought Mac guys had it better! And security was never a major issue with Mac, was it?
[I am a Mac novice, noob if you will; can’t afford them! So please don’t find my query offensive! I am just a humble PC guy!] 😉
The difference between Tiger & Leopard is that Leopard has 300+ new features like Spaces, Time Machine, Quick Look, a new Finder, consistent look, improved Mail, improved Front Row, etc etc…
All features can be found here : http://www.apple.com/macosx/
Cosmetic changes are a small part of the new Leopard feature set. The biggest features that I’m looking forward to are Spaces (Virtual Desktops), Time Machine (automated back-ups), and Quick Look (the ability to quickly preview files without having to open them).
Security issues (as far as I know) aren’t so much of a problem on the Mac – and even better, the new Macs that are Intel based can run Windows (so you have the best of both worlds).
Hey Bert! I know what the Apple site looks like! I have read their POV right when Leopard was first announced! I wanted to know a user’s POV which usually is what matters! [No offense!]
Interesting! Similar to the changes between Windows XP and Vista then!
But features like Spaces [akin to Linux Workspaces] and Quick Look [akin to Vista widgets] are hardware hoarders, aren’t they?
You would require a beefy rig to enjoy all that without slowing down system performance! Well! MacPro’s do come with quad core Xeon processors, 4 graphic boards and 16 GB RAM, so I think that isn’t the issue here! 😉
Must get a copy of Leopard and try a PC installation! Tiger ran beautifully on an Intel PC with Windows as the other OS!
I can’t say much about Leopard’s performance as I don’t have it yet – but each release of OS X has always run faster than before – and this evidence is coming from using Jaguar, Panther, and Tiger on my 2003 model Dual 2GHz G5.
The interesting thing with Leopard is that it isn’t all about what you see with the installation of the OS. it is will be with what the developers of Apps can do with it. There are new frameworks and updates to existing ones that will make a difference in how developers will write their apps. And many of these technologies are not backwards compatible, so the developer would have to do a lot to make the app seem to work the same on Tiger (with significantly more code!).
Okay! So Apple guys also go the Microsoft way by denying backwards compatibility to boost the sales of a newer version of OS! Maybe not as bad as Microsoft but bad nevertheless!
Yay! Linux! 😉
Not to turn this into an OS war thread or anything – Linux is free – which is a big pro – but it still lacks the ease of use and polish with regards to installing applications. Hopefully, as it continues to press on, it will become easier to do so…
I have nothing against Mac OS X. I like the software from what I have seen of it! But I didn’t know that it had backwards compatibility issues like Windows! Hence, Yay Linux!
As far as installation of applications and configuring them go, Windows still rules the roost with the ease and the sheer variety out there! Tiger is niche and hence does not have the same armory of applications, but those that are there install smoothly; and Leopard should be an improvement!
Linux has major issues with installation of applications, where a small change in one package is good enough to cause enough nuisance for a novice; yet, this is being refined and corrected as each new version of a particular distro comes out! Ubuntu has still a long way to go to catch up to Windows, but it is on the right track, given the fact that it is community created!
Linux also suffers from BackComp issues. Case in point: the Linux release of The Sims, which is not compatible with most of the latest builds of many Linux variants. As far as I’m aware, the original release of The Sims works under Vista…
