The King Returns

John nails it as usual.

John Siracusa's Annual Tour de Force

There is no amount of reviewing this review that can convey how excellent it is. While John avows that the web version is canonical, this is a great way to support his efforts. Get with the program, folks.

Doesn't get much better….

A new Siracusa review is an event almost unto itself. John shows everyone how an OS should be ripped apart and examined. Plus he generously peppers his reviews with his wry dry wit and copious screenshots and inside jokes.

I eagerly await every release with a nice single malt and some light jazz.
