Comparing OS-X and Vista

John Welch compares Vista and OS-X. for Network Computing (courtesy of Information Week). He compares these to "Revolution" vs. "Evolution," with OS-X making steady progress towards 10.5 while Vista comes after 6 years of struggle. He puts OS-X on top. Welch includes an image gallery comparing the desktops and some of the dialog boxes and controls. Of course, I cannot say anything here of my own regarding Vista. I've not touched it yet and I use OS-X at home and am perfectly satisfied with it. In fact, we run it on two separate machines shared by 4 people, each with their own accounts, tastes and proclivities. It works just fine and the regular automatic upgrades of OS-X have actually been very useful and smooth as far as our applications of`interest are concerned.

<I use OS-X at home> I use SXCR54 at home. Sorry for a trivial and stupid comment.

What is SXCR54?

<What is SXCR54?> Sorry, I, apparently incorrectly, assumed that everyone visiting Sun's blogs knows SX stands for Solaris Express (or Solaris 11 beta), CR stands for community release, i.e., Sun's version of OpenSolaris. Currently, it is in release 54. With HDTV body-snatching into our living rooms, unless ZFS can be seemlessly ported into other operating systems (this is what everyone in Linux is waiting anyway), we may expect Solaris to become a mainstream OS for homes. Again, another very stupid comment.
