    If they market "widgets on the desktop" as a "feature" then i'm going to scream

    oh i want to love leopard, i want to love leopard a lot

    but when a new ichat, stationary in mail, automated backing up, and "widgits on a desktop" are major enough to consider a point release and show 2 years of progress then i get pissed

    like i said i'll shut up until the final comes out, but right now i'm left wondering what the hell they were wasting 2 years of time on

    Clearly you're not 'shutting up' - :rolleyes:

    You're right - Apple shouldn't have hyped up the 'developer preview' of Leopard as much as they did. If they weren't prepared to demonstrate the BIG features of Leopard, they should've shifted the focus on WWDC from Leopard to Completing The Transition...or something like that.

    However, Core Animation and 64-bit (along with the announcement of XCode 3.0) are probably pretty huge features for developers - we'll know more about the consumer benefits at MWSF, I hope :)

    Well I could tell you they spent A LOT of time getting Intel running on Mac OSX. Other than that, I don't think Leopard is a smash hit until I see the secret features they keep ever so close to them.
