    Is Safari snappier? Also, do .gif animations work with preview?

    no cut does not work in finder. also i do not see any changes to textedit (version 1.5). safari is alright, but doesn't seem snappier to me. as for the animated .gif's, they are not animated in preview, nor does it show the frames anymore. however, i realized that they modified the preview, it looks nicer. i used time machine, and noticed that 5.31gb's is backed up to about 4.3gb. it copies pretty much everything including applications, etc.

    problems seen thus far:
    -had a huge problem using adium (both latest .89 and beta 1).
    -does not like viewing files through unison.
    -ipod has difficulty staying mounted. appears then disappears seconds later.

    more screenshots:

    note about time machine: backup drive must be apple formatted, and cannot be fat32.

    Do you have to post your Leopard bashing in every thread? We get it, you don't like it.

    bashing? i'm offering criticism. the finder used to be the most important thing that made a mac, a mac. it was elegant, powerful, and rich of features.

    ever since OS X was released the finder has been lacking. i can link you to many mac experts who agree with me. daringfireball, and john sircusa come to mind.

    ever heard of pathfinder?

    I tend to agree. The Finder is mainly what sold me on a Mac, and although it's not terrible now, I know Apple could do an amazing job if they wanted to, and it's kind of annoying that the Finder is so blah.

    Yes, and I wouldn't want it to replace the finder.

    Why do they insist on giving Exposé, Spaces, and the Dashboard their own icons to take up lots of space on the dock?

    Why not just remove them yourself? Problem solved.

    And I do... I just think its a shame that many users don't seem aware that Dashboard can be called from the F12 key, which in my opinion is a bit more elegant than moving the mouse down there and clicking on it.

    I wouldn't say elegant, but maybe practical. I am not a fan of hotkeys, but that one was chosen well.

    The icons are there because i added them. they can be removed by dragging them off (unlike dashboard). i like the tabs in chat (they look pretty much like proteus tabs, and not like adium tabs). unfortunately, multiple accounts still appear in separate lists.

    In Tiger, Dashboard can be removed by dragging them off the dock. Is this no longer possible in Leopard?

    I was expecting an improvement on the look of Finder. I am a die-hard Apple fan,, but I am really starting to get bored of the same style all over again. With Vista around the corner, chich offers substantial improvements into its GUI (although many ideas are "borrowed" from OS X), Apple should me more concerned about the looks of Leopard's Finder. I don't know for how long the under-the-hood changes will keep the users from calling names at apple that leaves them with the same old Finder once again.

    Bad choice, Apple!
