OS X Tiger Screenshots

OS X Tiger

A nice bunch of pictures of the upcoming release, highlighting new features like Automator, Dashboard, Spotlight and VoiceOver, the new spoken command interface.

Looking at these pictures, if there's one thing that one is made aware of, it's that Apple's graphic design people are by far the best in the business. None of the currently available Microsoft operating systems even come close to OS X for sheer graphic elegance, and it's fair to say that Windows XP, with its garish default "Luna" skin, actually fares worse than Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 in the comparison stakes. When will Microsoft learn that "easy to use" and "childlike" aren't one and the same?

Windows XP looks like a kid designed it with finger paints.
