    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!

    sooo. . .

    . . . 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.

    View it with VLC to slow it down (without audio).

    When applications share a common, reliable source of metadata it could open possibilities to some interesting new ways for integrating them.
