It's my general impression that Tiger gets worse every day. For  
Panther I could not report so many bugs. And a standard answer to all  
my bug reports is, it's already known. And the interface to report  
bugs at Apple has become worse and less functional, motivating me to  
deliver equally bad descriptions. So why should TeX on Tiger improve  
in all this decline?!

Have you heard about guerilla marketing? Mac OS X 10.4.9 is another  
marketing trick to motivate people to buy Leopard. To get, hopefully,  
at least rid of its pile of bugs.

My response to André was partly a joke – and partly a complaint, that  
TeX on MS Windows is so much more mature, offering real great and  
useful services. And partly it was also a recommendation: since /he/  
has a (well equipped) intel based Mac he can use Bootcamp to have  
some MS Windows running ...



When people run around and around in circles we say they are crazy.  
When planets do it we say they are orbiting.
