  • Opinion – Windows 7 doesn’t exist (and neither does Snow Leopard) | Teic.ie
    Window slimmed down re skinned and with a few new features added It is a minor upgrade not a new operating system There is nothing particularly wrong with this the name change is simply a marketing move designed to get away from Vista s poor reputation and the system itself is a worthy upgrade But it is not in any meaningful way a new operating system Similarly Apple s Mac OS X Snow Leopard is not a new operating system worthy of celebration In both cases the upgrades are not significant enough to warrant the attention they have garnered For both Apple and Microsoft the main innovation is the removal of decades of cruft that has accreted slowing every function to a crawl on lower powered machines Rewriting inefficient code and removing vestigial features is a worthwhile enterprise something that should be done a lot more in fact but it is not exciting So what would qualify as a new operating system then There are a couple of ways of looking at the issue Obviously a completely new operating system written from scratch is one Secondly a major switch such as from DOS to Windows or from Windows 95 98 to NT XP is a major change Similarly the switch from the classic Mac operating system to Mac operating system X was a genuinely huge shift Although Mac operating system X incorporated some legacy technologies from older Mac systems it was in fact actually based on an entirely different operating system NeXTStep What made Mac operating system X genuinely new was its new API its changed focus and to a lesser degree its new user interface Some more minor upgrades such as Mac OS X Tiger and Leopard both of which brought a great deal of new features and significant changes to the OS are worth talking about Additionally the ongoing shift on both platforms from 32 to 64 bit is noteworthy at least among the tech crowd Neither Snow Leopard nor Windows 7 however bring tectonic shifts in technology In both cases they are merely point upgrades worthy point upgrades but point upgrades nonetheless What they are not is anything to get excited about Unfortunately despite the presence of real innovation the retail software industry is almost entirely predicated upon selling us software that we don t need Meaningful development is occasionally found in the world of operating systems even in established ones but let s not pretend that what are essentially bug fixes are innovation Jason Walsh is a journalist based in Dublin He is the editor of forth magazine Related Posts Time to get smart about R D No Comments Oct 4 2009 Vodafone restore broadband connections after outages No Comments Jan 12 2010 Microsoft unveils Kin handsets 1 Comment Apr 12 2010 Samsung tease their GalaxyTab before 2nd Sept reveal No Comments Aug 25 2010 3 Comments ruairi 21 01 2010 In fairness to Apple by naming it Snow Leopard and by reducing the price they
