    For the uninitiated: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dogcow

    For everyone else... who thinks Clarus the dogcow should be restored to (her?) former glory in Leopard? It'd be, like, one tiny little replacement and would be superbly badass. We could start up a letter writing campaign to Apple, though there are more pressing concerns for Apple (such as, err, quality control).

    Who's with me? Let me rephrase that - is anyone with me? :p

    You might have had a fighting chance with this if you'd started lobbying three or four months ago. Apple's not going to change a thing in Leopard now, though, unless they have absolutely no choice. If the gold master hasn't been blessed yet then minimally they're in "critical bug fixes only" mode.

    Sadly, as the wikipedia page states:-

    "Currently, Apple owns the trademarks "dogcow" and "Moof!", but not "Clarus"

    Shame :(

    I think Clarus is lovely, but I think it's better that she/he continues to live on in fandom.

    You're right, but the thought only just occurred to me. All the same, Apple could do it and then list it as one of the 'Top Secret' features they'd been working on, placating the people who think Leopard is going to gain features at such a late development stage.

    As much as I liked Clarus, I don't want him/her/it in my nice shiny OS X. :rolleyes:
