    It's always nice to see an iMac placed on a super-clean deskspace, I must be missing something, as my desk it a total mess! :)

    I've been using iPhoto/iLife 06 a lot this week, having upgraded hassle-free from iLife 05 on both my iBook G4 & iMac G5. I really appreciate iPhoto's increase in speed, the full-screen viewing is a nice feature, which as you've mentioned in your review makes much better use of your screen, esp. smaller ones (i.e. a 12inch iBook). I've made use of a couple of the new effects/tools, made a family calendar for my Mum & Dad, but for the most part it's just a great photo management tool.

    I've also had 2-3 crashes, but having 'lost' nothing, it's not been disasterous - OSX kept it's cool as usual in these situations.

    I've also been chipping away at iMovie 06, I like the new layout and the noticeably faster features. I did however spot an issue earlier this afternoon in that the transitions I was trying to apply to my timeline were messed up and although I'm sure I've seen this before in iMovie 05, I can't for the life of me remember how I 'fixed' it last time. :confused:
