    I was wondering what key points panther has improved on. if you look at this site http://www.xvsxp.com/ it compares xp to jaguar and i wanted to know what they have improved on next to jag. the only thing i know really is fast user switching

    i suggest searching the threads about panther. there is a ton of useful information.

    a few other small things:
    boot time is significantly quicker.
    the finder has been almost completely rewritten.
    fast searching from the finder.
    exposé
    faster response times.
    faster app load times.

    ETC...

    i suggest you wait until Panther goes final. a lot can change between now and then, especially performance-wise. So it's not a fair assessment against Jag.

    dont listen to this site, it is stupid. they are right on some things, but i dont agree with them. like transferring files. the other day i was loading a gb's worth of stuff on my friends dell laptop before he went to college. i had a difficult time getting my powermac to read it. now i had it set up pretty easily between my powermac and my xp machine. but something about his machine just made this a hassle. each comptuer would see it on my network but could never open it. i ended up resulting in a simple crossover cable which worked a little bit better. but i was just thinking, only if i had 2 macs with a firewire port and use Target Disc Mode, so much easier and conveinent. thats just my opinion. i love how xp wins on lots of the system restore stuff and things like that. micsosoft needs to make it easy because i know ive had to do it way more than restoring a mac.
