Leopard In Action: A Movie?

http://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogo.gif

Blogger user "Reality Resized" has posted what he/she claims is a video of Mac OS 10.5 "Leopard" in action. The video is relatively short, albeit longer than fake Video iPod mockup movies that have surfaced over the past year. Notable depictions in the video are a tabbed, solid-metal Finder interface, as well as what appears to be slightly more system menu selection effects.

The demonstration was run on an iMac G5 1.6 GHz with 1.25 GB of RAM. While the movie is certainly more promising than last week's fake screenshots, there is no hard evidence that the movie is legit and MacRumors cannot independently verify its authenticity at this time.

Credit to Leopardtracker.com for discovering the video.

Looks good and real! I think the Finder looks the same as iTunes, GUI wise.

Well, I think we can safely say that a lot of the leaks we're seeing have some similarities that will see the light of day.

Holy Blair Witch, Batman -- that video stinks!

Of course, it can't be just Photoshop. It could, however be a tough full-screen video project....

The tabbed browsing and solid colour interface is nice, but nothing too great to show off in this video.

I think it is a fake video. Why on earth would they show NOTHING but the tabbed browsing. Because it takes too much work.

It looks fairly good, but can be easily mocked up using XCode.

It could be real. However, if it is real it should be off the net within a day. As soon as apple's lawyers find it....

Well it would have to be a big conspiracy...

1. All the "fakes" have consistent interface (all like iTunes).

2. All the "fakes" have tabbed browsing in the Finder.

You could be right, but I think these will be new features.

Its been strongly rumoured that finder will have tabs... hence all the fakes show them.

The consistent interface has also been recently rumoured.

So, really, it doesn't take a genius to mock something up , using the rumours as guidelines.

I am right about "its easy to mock up a GUI in XCode" :-D

I don't know why I expected more from an Apple fan's version of grainy surveillance video...

Enough people in the world share common sense notions like a unified metal GUI interface to make this real or fake, so I don't think it really matters if the video is legit or not--Apple will get it right and finally implement a consistent theme.

I'd rather see a video of the fake Address Book/iCal thing from earlier this week.

Real or not, that video really isn't all that interesting IMO.

I hope tabbed finder isn't the most exciting new feature in Leopard. I really can't see myself utilizing this feature.

There should be another option on the poll: "Don't Care"

Looks fake. Way too responsive for an imac G5 1.6. Even my powermac G5 doesnt explore new windows that quickly. Notice as soon as she/he clicked on the mac HD link, it appeared immediately!

Also, if it was real...wouldnt she show us more of the OS such as...well...idk...other stuff?

I am saying fake. In the beginning, look at the dock. From what you can see, no new applications.

Yet another refurbishment of the non-spatial Finder, sigh.

Same - less ram (1gb) + faster processor (2.16ghz) than video = instant finder window.
