This is why I love Apple: the next version of their OS will have (almost) no new features—they’re just going to streamline the current version. They promise to make it require less hard drive space, make it require less RAM, and the whole affair will be faster than the current version. This is precisely the opposite of the approach taken by every other software company under the sun. Given that they’re also a hardware company — they’re in the business of selling people newer, zippier computers — this is a particularly impressive move on Apple’s part. The speculation is that the upgrade will run $29, which I think is a reasonable price. It comes out in a year.
