Massive Data Loss Bug in Leopard

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.

But, but... Apple says Macs are just perfect. Down to pixel level where it
matters /least/ if one's data -- the bread and butter -- is lost.

| showing only an interminable -- and very Windows-like -- "blue screen of
| death."  

New iMacs plagued by interface freezing issues

| system all but inert until a reboot.  

Apple Arrogance Unleashed!

,----[ Quote ]
| But the only problem with Apple is that it has no gratitude. Or humility. Or
| generosity. Or manners.
| I'm a big fan of Apple products. But there's no escaping the fact that Apple
| has always been, well, arrogant. Which was fine -- their superiority complex
| has always been both partially deserved and one of the company's motivations
| to strive for better things. But in the past few months, the company seems to
| have crossed some kind of invisible line, now brazenly pissing off not just
| competitors, but its most devoted fans, closest partners and industry
| supporters.
