A Decade of Mac OS X Reviews

John Siracusa:

This ten-year marker presents an opportunity to do something technology writers usually avoid. I’m going to look back at some of my hopes and fears from the early days of Mac OS X’s development and compare them to the reality of today. Was I right on the money, shrewdly warning of future disasters that did, in fact, come to pass? Or do my predictions now read more like the ravings of a gray-bearded lunatic? It’s judgment day.

I no longer hate the Dock, but it’s still too easy for novices to accidentally “delete” Safari. Perhaps removal should only be via the contextual menu.
