Apple releases 10.5.2 update for OS X

By Justin Mann on February 11, 2008, 7:23 PM
Apple has posted an OS X update for all Leopard users out there. Version 10.5.2 brings with it a host of fixes, ranging from general application fixes to serious security flaw patches. Depending on your system configuration, the download weighs in from 180MB up to 300MB according to some users.

The huge list of updates, which was originally announced last year, includes fixes for Finger, Safari, OS X's wireless software, Mail and a whole lot more. There are GUI enhancements as well, for an overall must-get round update.

If this was an MS news update about their software, the headline would read "Microsoft releases HUGE patch for serious flaws in major software and OS.". It just goes to show how our media just loves apple and hates Microsoft. I guess it's still "in" to hate them. Very lame.

I totally agree with that perception, although Microsoft has at times gained its reputation with a long over delayed patching process. What we have today is a more responsive, conscious, and proactive Microsoft, believe it or not.

Apple is getting a lot of flak for bugs/missing features that should not have been in the first place but you cannot criticize them for the speed with which they put out the updates. Leopard has only been out 6 months or so & it already has had two big updates (10.5.1 & 10.5.2) so I'm quite happy with the support they're providing.

Its too bad Microsoft's latest OS is not responsive, conscious, and proactive in capturing the consumer's attention. The majority of people prefer to have XP preloaded on their systems and with the planned withdrawal of support for XP, Microsoft will screw the consumer in the end. Microsoft can easily release DX10 support for XP, but chose to release it on Vista. Just changing out to a new video card would cause a reactivation of the OS and even one time my product key was canceled by them because I activated it too many times. Thats why many people hate Windows even though they use it, not because its the best OS on the planet, its just has the most widely supported software base.
