Listener Scott sent me this info about a great, and very in depth, article on the tech of Tiger.
John Siracusa writes these in-depth looks at the technology of OS X
and has been reviewing each release since DP2. He is a hard-core user
interface guy with some strong opinions of things Apple is still not
doing right (oddly, these are things they were doing right in the
pre-OS X days).
He also spends quite a bit of time talking about changes in the file
system, how Spotlight works behind the scenes, as well as what this
might all mean for where Apple is headed with OS X features.
I thought you might enjoy the read – one Mac geek to another.
