Seems like a mighty big bug...what the heck happened to the QA team (did they take a looooong lunch break or something?)

Over 100 bug fixes? Fixed an issue where all of a user's data is deleted? Seems odd for an operating system that "Just Works" and doesn't come with the "Pain of using a PC". Odd indeed.

It is apple, they don't make mistake, this is most likely user bad use of the system. Base on apple ego lastic testimonial.

[citation][nom]roofus[/nom]So will Mac and PC Guy talk about this on the commercial?[/citation]
M$ should have really done a counter ad when they had the chance, it would have been epic

PC laughs and pokes Mac: Hey Mac, I hear you delete all your data when someone else touches you.
Mac looking stupified: What? Where did you here that?

Well bugs in OSX are funny when Apple says, Macs just work and don't have problems PCs do, yet they fix bugs and obviously don't just work, unless deleting user files is what they mean by that. I think the sarcasm is justified, shouldn't talk so big unless you are sure of what you can do.

Just the Guest account data was deleted during the upgrade. Personally, I have never used a guest account on a Win or Mac machine. I guess if you cannot be trusted with a real account then it was the shits for you, but then it still is the shits for you if you are still just a "guest."

A lot of the fixes are minor in my book. Fixes like: an issue in Dictionary when using Hebrew as the primary language, shutter-click sound effect when taking a screen shot, an issue with the four-finger swipe gesture, an issue adding images to contacts in Address Book, an issue in Front Row that could cause sluggish or slow frame rates while watching videos, etc. Not really issues that relate to the integrity/stability of the OS.

Wrong. The bug caused a main account's data to be deleted if the guest account was enabled before upgrading to Snow Leopard and after upgrading, a user logged onto the guest account and then someone logged back into a regular account. Doesn't really matter if you have never used a guest account before, that is a huge bug that shouldn't happen. I've set up guest accounts on my computers before. I know you defend Apple at every chance but at least get your facts straight.

-an issue that might cause your system to logout unexpectedly
-a problem that prevented authenticating as an administrative user
-an issue that prevented opening files downloaded from the Internet

I would say those relate to the stability and integrity of the OS pretty well.

Ouch!

Even if a person did loose data then that is what happens if you do not back-up your drives. Tough shit. Probably the same mentality that is having all kinds of issues with Win 7 installs.

that would be funny as hell.

I bet one of those "fixes" was the getting rid of atom support.

"over a hundred fixes"

Funny and ironic knowing that the only reason why OSx is so worst than Windows anymore with so many flaws, or that they barely ever address issues of their operating system that they release updates every once in a very very long time and yet noone is comlpaining to make it so loud of an issue over the net is simply cause of their small userbase and why they keep getting away with it.
