VISTA and OS X are not the same. 2848
To my way of thinking, any change to an OS that adds lots of new features is a major upgrade. To bad that there are no standard criteria for what consbreastutes a major or a minor upgrade. Then maybe we'd all be on the same page. So, by your criteria, Vista is just a service pack of XP? Well, that, at least, seems to be true.
You mean 7.0 was a major upgrade. It broke things it was so major. AFAIR, 7.1 broke nothing, just fixed some bugs.
Actually, its not really an "upgrade", its a paradigm shift since it "orphaned" many older Macs. Calling OSX an "upgrade" to OS9 is like calling Windows 2000 and upgrade from Win98. Like OSX, W2K ran on some of the same hardware as W98, and like OSX W2K had some of the same look and feel of W98, but underneath, they are very different.
Again. Depends upon what you consider major.
