well, that was fun. :D

Thanks to whoever put this thing together, although I'd like to see part of it in real-time, instead of sped-up.

way cool. I liked the cinematic use of the 'Zoom' Univelsal Access option to highlight what was happening in the menus. (man! that .mov plays fast)

So much, in fact, i played around with Univeral Access myself. . . but I couldn't get it to work quite the same as shown. I wasn't able get 'instantaneous zoom out' (backing out to 0% zoom, starting multiple zoom-steps in). Any help?

edit: i'm on 10.3.4

I'm on a PC at work so can't check this but I think if you use the key combo to turn off zoom (or maybe Universal Access) the zoom resets instantly to 0.

Yea, Option+Command+8 will turn it off (and automatically zoom back out to 0%).

I love using it when I'm watching a small video, maybe it's just me but it seems to be better quality than making the video itself Double Size or full screen.

I had to d/l this on an XP PC @ work, but it wouldn't open, so i d/l it again. Then it worked.

I would also like to see it in "real-time". However, it gave me a much better sensation of actually using the OS. For one thing, up until this point, I wasn't all that excited about Spotlight, but now, seeing how it works so seamlessly and quick in the middle of tasks, I think it's amazing...

It will also be interesting to follow the development of this OS... So much can change over the next year. Hopefully all for the better!

. . . is this a forum thread about another forum? There are just too many Mac-related forums now.

Nope, just referenceing it as the source of this Tiger movie.

I agree. ;) Luckily, we've made it to the best one!

A nice beat to the song. The picture was very fuzzy. It did bring a smile to my face.
