John Siracusa has been reviewing OS X since it was in beta.
Every release Apple has made has been accompanied by a an in-depth, insightful Siracusa review. Alas, all good things must come to an end. From Hypercritical:
Nearly 15 years ago, I wrote my first review of Mac OS X for a nascent “PC enthusiast’s” website called Ars Technica. Nearly 15 years later, I wrote my last. Though Apple will presumably announce the next major version of OS X at WWDC this coming June, I won’t be reviewing it for Ars Technica or any other publication, including the website you’re reading now.
We’ll still hear John’s thoughts on his podcast, ATP, just no longer read them on Ars. So, it’s more a change than a loss. It’s also a chance to do this:
Thank you, John, for all the years and all the effort. It’s meant a lot, and been deeply appreciated.
