Apple Itunes deletes HD downloads

,----[ Quote ]
| APPLE FORUMS are buzzing with complaints about disappearing files from the
| Cupertino company's newly-launched High Definition (HD) service through
| Itunes.
| [...]
| So what happens is, you wait a couple of hours for your HD file to
| download... all well and good. Then the SD file, which takes a few minutes,
| automatically kicks in and kills the bigger file. bah!



Massive Data Loss Bug in Leopard

| Aaaand … poof!
| The directory on our Desktop is now gone. The directory shown in the C$ mount
| will only contain files that were copied entirely before the connection was
| disrupted, but nothing more (in the demonstration case, there’s only one file
| in "test", so nothing was copied successfully).
| [...]
| Where’s the rest of our data?
| Apple, please FTFF already. This is unacceptable.


Moving from Mac to Ubuntu: Why I’m switching

,----[ Quote ]
| Why I’m leaving Mac
| 1. Crap file management.The Finder doesn’t work for me. No location bar
| and no tree strucure side panel makes it difficult to navigate folders and
| move files around the way I want to.
| 2. Insufficient panels & customization. In Ubuntu I can have as many
| panels I want, can put all kinds of stuff on them, and can arrange them
| however I want. In OSX You just have the dock, and you can really only put
| applications or files on them, and you can’t even put in a separator to
| keep them organized.
| 3. Various other annoyances. Such as:
| * program menus are glued to the top of the screen on one monitor
| only, which detaches them from the window. This is especailly
| annoying when the program you’re using is on the second monitor.
| * the date/time doesn’t open to a navigable calendar. I often use
| this to check dates in the past or future.
| * you can’t see hidden files unless you run a command from the
| terminal to turn them on. Thus, hidden files are either always on
| or always off.
