The article gives many details about Apple's upcoming release of MacOS X, as well as information on the new PowerMac G4 and the very sexy PowerBook G4. You can also find reviews of Apple's new software titles iTunes and iDVD.

Something more important (4.12 / 8) (#8)

Perhaps the thoroughly revampled "Aqua Human Interface Guidelines" linked to within the article (which is very well done, as is the norm for Ars' John Siracusa) would be of higher importance to more people. These guidelines are extremely detailed and offer much insight into the navigation and structure of Mac OS X.

Poll (3.50 / 2) (#16)

While "Inoshiro" is normally a joke option, I think, in this case it can be argued (and my views are currently represented by the results of the poll) that Inoshiro, as a fully working, sentient biological lifeform, is "better" that either the software or the hardware produced by the Apple company.

I mean. Really. Could an MacOS X and a G4 combined maintian a popular website?

Better at What? (3.00 / 2) (#17)
by Anonymous 242 on Thu Jan 18, 2001 at 09:05:03 AM EST

On the other hand, can you imagine Inoshiro sitting at a keyboard typing in hex replies to http requests? I think the MacOS X G4 would be much better at serving up web pages, no?

Inoshiro doesn't fit (4.00 / 1) (#18)

You really want people to be voting on Apple's new iNoshiro. You know, fitted with translucent plastic ribcage and CD/DVD slot right in the middle of the face.

Hope that no one's too offended by the idea of stuffing Inoshiro's gob full of CDs.
