Steve Jobs, CEO, Apple Computer
The company plans to show off the next version of Mac OS X, code-named Tiger, on Monday at its Worldwide Developer Conference here. While Microsoft has released only minor updates and specialized editions of Windows XP since 2001, Apple has released Mac OS X and three further moderate updates, with Tiger marking a fourth.
Huge banners at the conference tout Apple's message, with signs such as "Redmond, we have a problem," and "This should keep Redmond busy" posted alongside pictures of a Mac OS X Tiger CD.
However, Apple has said it plans to slow its own pace of OS releases somewhat in the coming months.
