After upgrading to Tiger I was pretty pissed. Apple changed about
half of the Kernel API.
According to Ars Technica, who I guess gets it from developer dox or
sources that I haven't cared to find yet, the API will now not be
changed for several versions to come. Little consolation, of course.
After I changed the code to run on Tiger, it will no longer work
with Panther anymore. =/ Basically this means we are stuck with the
Tiger for the time being.
Is it reasonably possible for a coder to do a diff and create a
Panther compatible version (standard #if #else #endif stuff)? Or are
you saying you were forced to drastically and fundamentally change
the way you did many things?
I've been running Tiger for a while on my iBook G3/800, so I'm not
even sure I'll spend much time in Panther, unless Tiger pisses me off
a lot too. So far, my only complaint is speed - Tiger is faster under
the hood, but the all-important perception of GUI speed is not so
good in my experience to date - my graphics chip has been left behind.
