Well, I think it's safe to say that I was a great deal more excited for leopard before the keynote than I am now. The only home-run in there is Time Machine, which I will probably buy an external hard drive just for that :)

I did like this part of the article though:

Still, this hasn't been a great week for Microsoft. Mac users are prone to fits of excitement, true, but Steve Jobs generated more genuine enthusiasm forLeopard in 90 minutes than Microsoft has generated for Vista in the last five years.

So true, Congratulations Microsoft, you have made me switch to Apple- and the more time that goes by, the more glad I am about that purchasing decision. Tiger is a dream to use, while the vista beta was a major pain in the ass to navigate- and forget about getting any work done with it. :rolleyes:

Apple's marketshare has only one direction to go at this point. Thank-you Microsoft. If not for you, Apple would never have brought Steve back, and we would never have this wonderful OS that we have today. :D

You'll need some pretty powerful drugs.

remember though he didn't tell us everything. he's holding some things "close to the vest"

seeing how cool time machine was, i can only imagine what he has back in the top secret folder. now THAT gets me excited.

Did anyone else notice this?

Let's see: Leopard will finally bring virtual desktops to the Mac (organize dozens of windows into compartmentalized workspaces); it can run Windows apps at native speed; parents will gain even greater control over what their kids can do on the family computer.

And those were just the features that Apple was willing to show off.

What does he know that we don't?

I'd imagine he's referring to BootCamp being included in Leopard. One of Steve's points was Integration : PhotoBooth2, FrontRow2 and BootCamp not beta, will be included as part of the standard Leopard release.
