What an enjoyable and educative stroll down what is, for me at least, a faux memory lane. You see, the reviews John revisits here are ones I've never read, because I didn't hop on the Mac OS X bandwagon until spring 2003, when I was finishing up my computer engineering degree. I decided early in that last semester that as soon as the semester was over I would drop Linux (which had been my obsessed-over baby for many years at that point) and give Mac OS X a serious evaluation. I haven't looked back. (True to form, I actually couldn't wait until school ended before ordering a Titanium PowerBook G4.)
As any Mac OS X fan knows, John's reviews of point releases are required reading, and something I always look forward to when a new version is imminent.
