Rob Pegoraro, formerly the Washington Post's tech and gadget guy, has gone indy. He's still blogging about tech stuff at various sites. And, like many reviewers, he's finding less and less to like about Apple's Mac OS X Lion. His second, follow-up review is titled "Why Mac's New OS Fails."
Sure, you can fix these issues (and others critiqued in third-party articluy,es and in Apple's tech-support forum and Mac App Store) by changing Lion's defective default settings. Maybe an upcoming bug-fix release will improve things too. But that raises another issue: We already have an operating system that requires extensive tweaking and subsequent patching, and it comes from that other software company based in Redmond, Wash.
