    OK - I ahve the 6c40 build of JAg. on my Firewire disk, and there are a few things I've noticed that I haven't seen mentioned before...

    1) Finder Refreshing - I did a little test last time and it seems they have fixed this problem, seem that if you d/l something off the internet, you do not have to click on the desktop to get it to appear anymore (have not tried it with saving though)

    2) Even in this version the buttons ahve been improved and look less stingy and dark, so I am missing why everyone is picking up on this now

    3) Pressing Apple-key 4 used to just give you crosshairs for snapping screen photos, now it gives you this (rather bad looking in my opinion) camera icon.

    4) When I did take a screen shot, it appeared VERY QUICKLY, instead of the usual delay.

    and #5 is simply a comment, earlier people asked "why is Apple Legal not telling thinksecret and all them to take down the pics?" The answer is actually quite simple. Before, as in the iMac and all that, it was becasue the selling of the new iMac relied on it being different, and not having Dell release the same thing that week, but Jaguar needs to be sold on being fast, the audio support, the speed, the speed, the highly advanced rendering and subpixel usage, the speed, various Aqua improvements, the speed, and did I forget ot mention SPEED? By having everyone hyped and allowing them to see what's coming is a sure fire way for getting everyone to rush out and buy it as soon as it is available, I know I am :)

    Same here! I'm running Jaguar 6C35 which is one of the earliest seeds and I am VERY impressed. Can't wait for August!

    i think its temporary because apple it re-doing a lot of stuff... in the first 10.2 release (even before it was called jaguar) a lotta stuff was really weird and all whacked... like DiskCopy had a Dog for an icon... and a lotta weird stuff... i think the camera will notr be tehre in the final release..

    I'm not sure how one would go about doing this, but if possible, could someone post a screenshot of this "screenshot camera"? I'm interested in at least seeing the thing.

    P.S. Has anyone had any serious problems with the beta version that seems to be everywhere? And is it worth downloading this soon before its release?

    How is the OpenGl implementation in Jaguar? More specifically, how is 3D performance? Are 3D applications (ie games) running up to speed with os9 yet, or are they still more sluggish and choppy under 10.2?
    If someone could do some performance comparisons between 9 and 10.2 with games like Medal of Honor, AVP, UT, Warcraft III, or any other game with notoriously slower performance in 10.1.x it would be very much appreciated.
