Finally finished Siracusa’s epic-as-usual review.
What’s great about Siracusa’s reviews — and what I’ve never found to be the case for anyone else’s 20,000-word reviews (sorry) — is that they never feel long. It’s edited well, but more importantly, John has an impeccable sense of what’s worth discussing for the kind of people who read 20,000-word OS reviews. And since it’s consistently interesting, it’s over before you know it.
(Don’t forget the meta-post, which you can read before, during, or after the big one.)
