Apple launches Tiger OS

Mac OS 10.4 "Tiger" went on sale at Apple Authorized Resellers and Apple retail stores worldwide. The operating system includes "200 new features and innovations" that are sure to make Mac users upgrade to the new OS.

Another item which is sure to attract customers is the price of the OS. A single user license has a suggested retail price of US$129, but a Family Pack consisting of a single-residence, 5-user license is available for as little as $199.

Two star features of Tiger are Spotlight and Dashboard. Spotlight is a new desktop search technology that allows a user to find anything stored on his or her Mac, including documents, e-mails, contacts, and images. Dashboard offers a new way to quickly access information and applications called widgets.

The server version of the OS, Mac OS X Server 10.4 Tiger, is also now on sale. A 10-client edition is priced at $499, while an unlimited-client edition will run you $999.
