    Anti-Aliased text rules!

    I love it! Word now uses (and I presume all other office apps too) aa text! 10.1.5 and office v. x are a great combo. I used office v. x with 10.1.4 and it was quick. now with anti-aliased text in 10.1.5 it is STILL quick (the aa text didnt slow it down on my 500mhz ibook) and beautiful. idisk is quick. ive got quicktime 6 preview. loads in under 2 bounces (ive got 384mb ram) hmmm overall, im very pleased. timing between two huge companies (apple and microsoft) is wonderful. Office update one day to take advantge of new features. The next day the OS with the new features is out. Now THATS F*cking teamwork!!!

    I am with lemon on this one!

    Yes its nice to see things happen...but if these guys would ever get over their agendas and focus on building a fantastic product I will lose...IT.

    Simply amazing how quickly messenger 3.0 came out after the announcement of ichat...Too bad the file transfer won't work over Messenger...i think its my firewall...i wonder just how long that app has been ready....Can you imagine how many other things are readied in the torpedo tubes waiting for release....whenever they feel the pressure from the competition.

    Finally PCI Card support!!!

    Finally, with OS 10.1.5 my DP800 can go into deep sleep. I have a PCI SCSI card installed (that was BTO from Apple), and my system has never been able to go to deep sleep in OS X.

    Finally, this has been fixed with 10.1.5

    Yoohoo!!!

    Are you saying your IE is using AA? Mine is not.

    I agree, it is much nicer. I've had some issues with IE not displaying things correctly after its been in use, I'll have to watch carefully to see if this continues, or if its been fixed.

    The browse button for the attach file still doesn't display correctly.

    No, the AA is in Word, or all of office actually. The thing that I am really impressed with is the 2D support for the Rage Pro. Sheets and the Genie are very fluid now. I cannot wait to see the final build of X.2. There is no way that they are showing us everything.

    Well, surely you'll be able to call Apple Support and they'll correct this oversight.

    It's a miracle!

    The 10.1.5 update finally allows the rev. B PBG4 to drive an external display with the lid closed! Hallelujah!

    Pissed Off

    Apple is pissing me off -- they haven't updated their S/W Updates page... sure, they can update the main OS X page with a nice new little graphic up the top and put the description at the side of their "look how great software update is" -- no problems, but when it comes to making the download actually available over HTTP, well, they can't do that, can they!

    it's only really minor, but you'd think they would have automated this by now!

    Nice to have another update (and a reasonably major one at that), but my digital camcorder still isn't supported under OS X. In OS 9 iMovie recognises it, but X still insists on saying "Camera Disconnected". I wonder how long it'll take before that's fixed? :(

    Can't get it

    I've had really bad experiences with Software Update, especially for larger downloads like this one. Can anybody find a normal .dmg.gz download, so I can use iGetter or something that can resume?
