    It looks interesting, and someone would need to be fairly dedicated to Photoshop that, but how exactly did you run across these...?
    Another site, or did they just stumble into your path?

    We all kinda have high hopes for leopard- I hope it's as big as it appears. I don't just want a ramped-up tiger.

    Looks a little photoshop'y to me. Like in the second pic, why would you be switching from a OSX to a OSX desktop? I think this is a case of what they hope it will look like.

    Not bad...

    ...personally, I think it looks very Apple-ish. The tabs in the finder - I don't know, pretty convincing...

    Multiple desktops... not unreasonable to hope for.

    Might be completely fake. Probably is completely fake. But still cool.

    I like what I see. The tabbed feature in Finder is cool, and I also find it interesting that Address Book and iCal have apparently been combined. :cool:

    Can't wait for Steve's preview of Leopard at WWDC!

    Windows is running too, virtual world, showing that it is possible to run windows apps in the OS X environment....see the desktop Windows and OS X disk etc.

    Looks great though, just hope there are great features for PPC people too :eek:
    The spacing in the dock, finder tabs, combined iCal and Address Book looks great !

    Edit: This has to be fake...look at the about this Mac window....what Intel Mac with a Core Duo has DDR RAM and not DDR2 ?

    I hope Apple don't actually blend the Safari-style icon set with the traditional Aqua-style in Finder. :)

    AddressBook and iCal in one?

    Bottom-left of the IE windows looks 'chopped. The Status bar is too long.

    if a cease and desist letter comes from Apple to Macrumors soon, we'll know how real these might be.

    Desktop switching would be great, keep your work on one, and your music and videos on another.

    I wonder if the "/" icon in the finder window would allow one to type in a folder path... hmm...

    It could be the equivalent of the current path button available when customizing the Finder. And you do know that you can currently type in a path using shift-command-G, right?

    That's the multiple desktop switcher that seems to be present in the second screenshot.

    I like the new GUI style (the same look found in iLife 06).

    Edit: ...Which I'm sure will be found in Leopard, whether or not these pictures are real.

    I agree. All I was meaning was that if this was a photo demonstrating this ability, it might have been shown a little better. I personaly like the tabbed finder myself. :) I just question the legitimacy of the pics.

    The corners seem less rounded than in 10.4. I kind of like them how they are now. :eek:

    ummmmmm perhaps it's not a Mac..Or one soon to come?

    Looks pretty realistic to me with the exception of the memory config.
