I just went to the Rogers, MN Best Buy and I have to say, Leopard seems like a graphics-only update. I couldn't find anything new on it! The only thing I saw was extra photo booth effects.

Anyone know what new features I didn't see in my 15 minute preview?

This update really took support for the multi-core machines to the next level by improving multi-threading support, and extending a lot of the updates granted to OS level apps in Tiger to the developers for their apps (aka 64-bit memory space.)

There were still a lot of OS sections in Tiger that were big bad single threads, aka Finder. Leopard Finder is multi-threaded now, likely a whole heck of a lot of Leopard is multi-threaded now, not just the choke points.

If it was just a GUI update, a coverflowed Tiger Finder, would likely make you scream.

Haven't played around enough, and I'm used to it, but the GUI lag most Windows users comment on should be reduced.
