Re: new problem

The writing of an operating system is more than complicated and the prime OS is for Windows.
Mac/Apple is growing in usage but still below 10% of the computers in the world. That alone
causes programmers for companies to spend time working out the changes necessary in their
programs to work on Windows.
The new OX Leopard software has glitches, which are theoretically being solved with an upcoming
update of near 450 MB's . . so, many of us might wish to wait a bit for Tiger to settle down.

Actually, I did post a real problem here last week, but I never got an answer. I installed Leopard on my iMac a couple of weeks ago, and now I'm having all sorts of problems, especially with my Epson 3800. Epson currently has a test driver, which I downloaded, but the printer has lost a lot of its prior functions. Epson, it seems, can't keep up and won't have a new driver that works with Leopard until March.

Can someone explain this to me? By all accounts, Epson makes truckloads of money. Can they not hire and pay people to keep up with what's current-- and in the process, stay current, too? How difficult is that for a company like Epson-- seriously?

So I can either sit here and wait until March for the full-featured Epson driver that works, or I can remove Leopard and re-install Tiger.

Is anybody else having this problem, or is it just me?
