Happy Birthday Mac OS X

Wow, Mac OS X version 10.0 was released 5 years ago today. ArsTechnica has a nice write up marking the occasion. Fave quote:

“The original Mac users had a very different experience. Back then, the Mac wasn’t a seductive whisper; it was a bolt of lightning, a wake-up call, a goddamn slap in the face. “Holy crap! This is it!” Like I said, transformative. For the rest of the computing world, that revelatory moment was paced out over an entire decade. The experience was diluted, and the people were transformed slowly, imperceptibly.“

Five years of Mac OS X
