Ok, what's the coolest feature of Panther that you have discovered since using it....

I would say that Expose is probably the coolest feature, and the one I use the most. As I've only had Panther on my laptop, I haven't really made too much use of it. But it makes things so much easier. Can only imagine what it will be like on my iMac.

The Alt-Tab is much nicer as well.

I like xcode actually. Expose is pretty cool, and its a feature i will definitely use, but xcode means i can finally get work done for class :-D

Alt-Tab switches between the currently running applications. Give it a try, won't hurt

i think the coolest thing for me in Panther is the new finder windows, because it is easier & faster for me to get to my files, plus I love the fact you could customize it.

Not sure what to say here ever since I updated to Panther my dock has been way slow!! So thats what sucks about it, but not sure if thats what caused it. and What is xcode?? I think that the new apple logo is the coolest addition. looks so darn good.

Yes. I think spell check, POSIX compliance and X11 were too. But they are still cool.

Xcode should be on a separate CD in the set. If not, I think its available on ADC.
