Happy Birthday OS X

Yesterday was the 10th birthday of the OS X operating system. The system, release back in 2001, has come a long way since its buggy beginnings. Some things have stayed unchanged throughout the years, such as the Dock and the Search Bar. It is also interesting to not that ten years ago, Windows made up almost 95% of the user market. That left Mac with a little less then 4% of the market. Today, Mac has atleast 11% of the market, and is also one of the most recognized symbols around the world. From Cheetah, to Panther, then Tiger, to Leopard, and now Snow Leopard, many things that make OS X great are consistent through out the different operating systems. This is a happy birthday to the Mac, and as a birthday wish from me I hope that Lion be the next great thing.
