Let's hope this is the update which fixes all of the visual flaws. (leather flap covering part of the notes list, reminders being the only app not going full screen, the peculiar choices full screen switching makes with itunes and others, etc., etc., etc.)

oh, and I hope it fixes the sporadically missing mouse cursor problem.

It would be nice if 10.8.3 fixes the almost constant Spotlight Indexing issue.

That doesn't sound promising at all - no reference to mdworker/sandboxing/spotlight/sleep issues.

I would be much happier if the headline read:
Apple seeds new f#$king iMacs to consumers!

That being said, it would be nice if ALL apps "remembered" that they were full screen the next time they're launched, instead of just iTunes.

Graphic drivers? So the switching integrated/discrete crashes will finally be dealt with?

What does Airport have that would be of interest to developers? I can see how all other "focus" areas would be relevant to developers, but not sure about Airport.

Probably a driver update.

Fix the obsessive spotlight behavior and the I'll-shutdown-when-I-feel-like-it-not-when-I'm-told behavior and I will be a happy panda.
