In my previous post, I mentioned the crappiness of Mail.app in Tiger, and today Rui over at Tao Of Mac posted a piece about his quality issues with the latest release of the OS. I've certainly been feeling the pain with iPhoto too, which is still part of my Flickr workflow. My personal experience though is that these problems are mostly restricted to the applications and not the OS itself (and strictly speaking, iPhoto 5 is not part of Tiger, and was buggy on Panther too.) But there's no doubt in my mind that things aren't quite as good as they used to be, stability-wise. Could I go back to Panther though, and lose the new cool stuff? Probably not.
