    the ctrl-alt-command-8 feature that changes your view to a film-negative type display seems to be different in Tiger...a little color mixed in. Am I correct in thinking Panther was just white on black?

    cool stuff

    Looks the same to me. A negative is a negative, its controlled by the standard colors

    The more I look at it, the more I'm convinced there were no colors involved in the Panther version. Anyone else think it's different? Or can a Panther user tell us if it's b/w only?

    I also think the colors are more vivid with Tiger.

    I think Jaguar was black and white, and Panther was colour. Or maybe Panther was B&W by default and you could switch it to colour. It was definitely possible to get it in colour in Panther.

    I didn't know OSX could do this at all, let alone in colour. It's a pretty cool feature but I can't think of any practical uses for it. Are there any?

    As Agent Smith would ask (God bless 'im); "does it serve a pur-pose?"

    It's one of the Universal Access features. For some people the inverted screen is easier to read.

    You can do that in the Universal Access preference pane. (Get color in the inverted mode.)

    My friend who is blue-green (I think) colorblind and has retina problems preferes reading white text on a black background, and can see negative colors better than positive.
