There it is folks! They put it up for all of us to see.

I'm incredibly happy they decided to include a virtual desktop-like option on it (Spaces).

The Timemachine program looks kick as well.

Anyway..enjoy~! :p

PS - Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, or for whatever I might have done wrong; I'm a newchild.

Don't see what they would be changing on it, nor would any slight changes really be noted heavily on the site until the final release is set

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

None are specifically mentioned on the site, but the new stuff in Spotlight may make up for some of that....

I love the way Microsoft has system restore, but apple has Time Machine

Microsoft has a little grey box where you check the date you want to restore on a calendar, Apple flies you out to friggin space.

Yea the spotlight will hopefully fix some of it, but Steve also said there are a lot of things they werent going to mention. That way microsoft wont cant copy it, so hopefully the finder is a new revision but from the demo the finder didnt look any different. So I guess we will have to wait and see with the final release.

Was there any mention of speed improvement for Rosetta in Leopard? I have read that menus and windows will open faster for Intel Macs but I have not seen anything about speed improvements for PPC programs running on Intel Macs.

Also, I did not see any changes announced for Finder. I know it has been a subject of debate as to what users felt needed to be addressed in Leopard and Finder was one of the components that could use a little help.

No, but hopefully most applications will be UB by the time leopard rolls around...

Rosetta is already pretty amazingly fast IMO.

My guess is that any Finder improvements are being kept underwrap until Leopard is actually released.

I can't wait till they release something completely new, like OS XI . However, the time machine seems strikingly similar to windows rollback feature. Does anyone from the OS 9 days know how long (i.e. 9.1, 9.2, 9.3, etc.) it took to get to X?

But yea, other than that what really seems to be that different from it and Tiger? :yinyang:

From the time they announced OSX? It was about a year and a half, but if you include the public Beta and 10.0 (which Sucked) it was closer to 2 and a half years. OSX didn't gain acceptance unitl 10.1 (which was free becasue it HAD to be). I didn't switch full time until 10.2.
