4.0 out of 5 stars Best Kind of Computer Is One that Works!, August 29, 2002
This review is from: Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar [OLD VERSION] (CD-ROM)
Best Kind of Computer Is One that Works!
Some of the reviewers here have odd complaints. Does anyone remember what a computer is there for? Making things easier!
Rather than going on slowly on the spur-of-the moment thoughts--like other reviewers, I will quote a portion of a usability paper on computers, relating to Jaguar, which I wrote.
Summarizing the beginning of the paper (which I will not include), a computer needs to be able to be compatible with what is already there (i.e. Windows), needs to work around things it can't do with alternatives (such as good conversion filters), and most of all, needs to be able to communicate with other computer systems.
Your work must be worth something somewhere besides your own room.
So, I quote:
"What a computer needs to be most useful for yourself and for all your jobs is the ability to (1) exchange files with other computers, (2) talk the languages of other computers, and of course, (3) let you do your work."
Luckily, I was savvy to Jaguar at the time, and I carefully noted how it fulfils all these requirements in its own specific comment.
-- "quote" -- (Excuse my salesish language.)
Jaguar, or Macintosh operating system X.2, is an incredible solution to these problems.
In terms of file exchange, consider that X.2:
* Has all Microsoft office software available.
* Supports the latest and best interactive media.
* Provides the strongest platform for new software.
X.2 talks the languages:
* With all Unix/Windows/Macintosh networks.
* To printers both old and new.
* Between itself and the whole Internet.
And X.2 is so easy:
* That you can use it your first day.
* When it can do all your work.
* So you can actually have fun.
-- "end quote" --
Those nine things are very important. Jaguar is decent.
I am somebody who ought to know--
And even if you hate it, Jaguar is still a nice name. :-)
