    Spaces - multiple desktops (like virtuedesktops)
    Timemachine - intuitive backup
    Resolution independence - things are bigger, but not blurrier
    Secret features...
    Boot camp (not beta)
    (Probably new version of) photobooth, front row
    Core animation

    Jaguar (Mac OS X 10.2) supposedly had 129 features for its $129 price. Maybe Leopard will have the same number.

    Of course, the number of interesting features is always less!

    Tiger was a much better deal with over 200 features for the same price of $129.

    I think the Spaces thing will be pretty cool.
    Will my iBook G4 handle Leopard ok? I upgraded the memory to 1GB.

    Leopard will be different in that it will require:

    1) Exclusive 2 year Cingular service contract
    2) It won't do any VOIP because Apple wants to force you to use Cingular
    3) And it will not play any video unless it's purchased from iTunes

    It seems like steve has turned to the dark side. He and Apple now seem to be working for Cingular and Disney. So sad :( So sad :( So mad:mad: So mad:mad:

    I can understand the Disney affair, but what's the deal with Cingular?

    Take it up with Steve Jobs. This is a thread about Mac OS X 10.5, not the iPhone.

    I understand that Leopard will give the Finder a mayor facelift, not just visually. A new UI is supposed to be due as well, more unified than Tiger

    Yep, what graphics card do you have? If it's the 9550 you'll get all the fancy eye-candy too. If it's an earlier build everything will still work but it won't be as flashy.

    Yeah...

    Not to be a complete dick...but have you thought about maybe checking out a little website called apple.com? I'm sure you might be able to find SOMETHING on there about it.

    Everyone hopes Finder will get a facelift...

    No hard info on the subject either way. People were kind of wanting to get details about Finder and the UI at MacWorld.

    OS X isn't like Windows, where a new version needs 10X the hardware to run. Get out of the Windows mindset...you have a Mac. :)

    With each OS update (10.1, 10.2, 10.3, 10.4) OS X has run faster and faster, especially on new hardware.

    Only OS X was slower than OS 9 it replaced.
