What app? The critism with that remark is lame simply by the lack of any details! Who's to say that simply running the installer for the "app" in compatibility mode for XP or Vista wouldn't have seen that go right on?

Useless comments to fill a web page is the bulk of this article. How would you come to that conclusion?

Simple! The writer is already a Mac user being biased towards the other OS from the start! There's no neutral "unbiased" comparison being made between the two OS platforms there.

Yeah, he obviously didnt feel the need to report the huge list of apps that dont work in Snow Leopard because of their legacy PowerPC code being dropped like a boat anchor.

The sad part about this one is the fast that this was found in the news not blogs section at ComputerWorld. That site and their other PC World site are regular publishers of magazines as well as having online articles.

If this had simply been another blog you could simply walk past it.
