Tim Wilson over at the Creative Cow started this blog post as a comment on the blog post I made over there about upgrading to Leopard (a reprint of what I posted here). It really goes in depth about the dangers of upgrading, and how really there is no way that Apple and other third party vendors can possibly test every possible combination of hardware and software to ensure that no bugs sneak through the cracks. This is also very pertinent to the recent issue I had with Noise Industries FX Factory, and how it was missed.

Many people every day report issues with their software and OS not working properly…and there are literally thousands of possible causes of these. It is just TOO easy to just cry foul and blame Apple for everything, for not “testing” properly.

Well, read his blog posting. It’s good.
