Boot Camp - Apple simplifies Windows XP on Intel Macs
Authored by: sophistry on Apr 07, '06 08:28:18AM

Rob,

I know this is a tiny thing, but it bothers me so I thought I'd bring it up.

Please update your scoring system as it is misleading.
You never give any POTW less than 8 stars anymore.

Why don't you switch to a 1,2,3 grade? That's how I read your scores anyhow.

1- Ok, but some serious issues (your 8)
2- Good all around, not perfect (your 9)
3- Perfect and does something really great in a great way (your 10)

my $0.02

Actually, I've never given anything less than an eight (well, maybe one seven) -- the whole point of the PotW is that this is good stuff :). Somewhere in the mist of time, I explained this in a PotW posting, that everything would be biased to the high end of the scale.

I went with 10 boxes orginally because it was, well, OS X, and because it was easily understood without a key -- 10 out of 10 is perfect, etc. With a scale such as yours, I'd need to include the key each week.

I may just do away with the ratings entirely, given that every PotW is good enough to be a PotW, and just call out any concerns in my commentary.

Thanks for the feedback;
-rob.
