Apple have just released a beta version for Windows! It's here.
I can hardly contain my indifference!
Had download it and run it on my work machine at work for testing purpose.
It crashed when it's loading www.apple.com/uk !! *What the!...*
Needless to say that the software undergoes an uninstall program straight after that!
Didn't really have any interest in it (as i dont use it on my mac), but thought i'd try to break my work PC with it. Seems to be o.k. so far. It is a beta so do expect some issues.
The problem with it (leading to the large number of complaints) is that the errors people are getting make it look more like an alpha release (not functionally complete, loads of errors), rather than a beta release (functionally complete, tested but a small number of errors remain).
Instead of gradually releasing Apple software for Windows, why don't they just release the Mac OS for PC's, then we can all go out and buy reasonably priced hardware to run OS X on. I love OS X but hate the hardware premiums, even though it is very well designed etc.
Because then you'll end up with same situation that Windows has. Lots of 3rd party drivers causing an OS to fail. No one blames the drivers just the OS.
It's a poor OS that lets applications kill it. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
NO OS wars!
