Diana has finally tested an Apple operating system, Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar. This was the first Apple operating system she had tested and was the seventh operating system she had tested overall.

OS Information[edit | edit source]

The Operating System was made publicly available on 23rd August 2002. The operating system set the template for newer Mac operating systems, and many systems from the recent years look very similar. The operating system introduced many new features including an Address Book and an e-mail client.

Diana's Comments[edit | edit source]

At the beginning of the video, when Philip announced the name of the operating system, Diana misunderstood "Mac OS X" as "Mac OSsex" (because Philip pronounced X as a letter and not as the number 10.) and began getting remarking, "Hope it's not rude!" Diana proceeded to try the operating system anyway.

Diana liked this operating system, even better than Linux Mint and put it high on her list of best operating systems. she mainly liked the magnification of the dock. Diana's only main complaint was the close buttons on the windows as she struggled to close them thinking the window buttons were just a decorative pattern "Pretty colours" she didn't like that the symbols were hidden when the button isn't hovered over. Diana initially thought that the OS had a start menu like Windows and attempted to find it in the bottom left, she was told by Philip that there would be serious copyright issues with Microsoft if Mac OS X had a start menu, due to the OS not having the familiar start menu she was used to, she struggled to find applications e.g. writing the text document. Diana liked OS X Jaguar more than Windows 8 and said that there were features it had she would like in Windows XP, 1 being the dock.
