Hey everybody, I just installed the Jaguar release on a test system, and I thought it might be interesting to share some experiences. If you don't find it interesting: suits me fine; ignore the thread... I'm not quite as happy as I thought I would be... I know it's still a Preview version, but it seems that the definitive version will still lack a couple of important features... First of all: maybe someone else pointed this out allready, but in the Startup Disk System Preference, it says 'OS X 10.2'. Well, I know it doesn't mean anything, it can still change, but it's there all right (for what it's worth). By the way... The system profiler also tells me it's OS X 10.2. Let me also say that Jaguar has lots of improvements, before I go to the negative points... I'm very, very, very happy with the overall speed (testsystem: iMac G3 400, 128 MB, where it was very hard to run OS X 10.1.5). Also, nice cosmetic improvements, and better system preferences. I think speed is the best improvement of all... Oh yeah, and the spring loaded folders work just fine But I have been waiting for some other improvements as well, and they don't seem to be there... still no dynamic refreshing of the Finder. I mean: when you delete a file from e.g. your Desktop with e.g. the Terminal, the file remains visible until you explicitely click the Desktop. The same for downloaded files... a file isn't visible on the desktop until Finder takes focus. Is this so hard to implement? Energy Saver! I have been waiting for quite a long time now for the Energy Saver features of OS 9. In OS 9 you can schedule different settings for Power or Battery. OS X 10.2... still nothing. One setting to rule them all... Disk Copy goddammit! In OS 9 it was soooooooo easy to make a disk image... You put all your stuff in a folder, you drag the folder to Disk Copy, and you have your Disk Image of the folder. Does anybody know how to do this in OS X?? I don't, and it's still not present in OS X 10.2. Still some cosmetic bugs, but I take it this _will_ be solved in the final release. *Sigh* Maybe I'm whining, but these are just my experiences after waiting a long time for this big release and then being a bit dissapointed. Sure, it's a big upgrade, but it's not that big. I wouldn't be surprised if it will be OS X 10.2. It certainly won't be OS XI - the upgrade isn't big enough for that. Also, there is still a chance it won't be a paid upgrade, I think... A small chance, that is... Well... those are my experiences... Back to work! k.
