    Actually, I rather like it. I don't, however, much like the look of the
    machines themselves. I think it's a step backward, as far as asthetic
    design goes.

    Actually, I just bought a G4 tower back in March. Now it's obsolete
    after only five months (it'll be August by the time the new G5's ship).

    Once Panther is out:
    "Panther is crap! I'm going back to Jaguar!" ...in the great tradition
    of: "Jaguar is crap! I'm going back to 10.1.5!" "10.1.x is crap! I'm
    going back to 10.0.x!" "OS X is crap! I'm going back to OS 9!"

    Yes, of course.
    But on the other hand, when OS8 came out some of the many hacks 'n'
    flacks who got freebies for publicly promoting it went far beyond
    boosting into harsh attacks on any cash customer voicing a legit
    complaint.
    It ceased so suddenly that I could only conclude that Apple told 'em to
    stop hectoring its customer base.
    Apple has never since run that marketing gimmick.

    Are you kidding? The G5 makes my (brand new) G4 look like some sort of
    plastic toy. Overnight my computer has transformed from one of my
    favourite things, to something of an embarrasment.

    Say what you like - but Apple know how to make truly beautiful computers.
