Mac OS X: Promise without the polish

Author: JT Smith

From ZDNet: "Sources familiar with the first ground-up rewrite of Apple Computer's (Nasdaq: AAPL) operating system since the Mac's debut in 1984 said the initial version will not be able to play or write DVDs. Other gaps, such as sleep problems with Mac laptops, also will limit the new OS' usefulness to certain users--although none rise to the level of aggravation that the lack of DVD support is likely to cause. According to sources, some problems will not be addressed until summer, when a revised version of Mac OS X--code-named Puma--begins shipping preloaded on new Macs."
