    Is there any way to replay the cool intro welcoming you to OS X the first time you turn on your new Mac (in my case iMac)? It is so cool to watch for the first time I even had my wife turn off the lights and it looked so fresh on the 24" display in the dark. Anyway I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to play this again and how. Is there a QT file somewhere that runs this etc?

    Years after I first saw it, I found the Welcome to iMac movie on my iMac DV somewhere on the hard drive. No idea what it was called or where it is, but it has probably moved since System 9 and 10.2...

    The movie and sound file for the intro clip can be found in:
    /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/

    When you come to something like "Setup Assistant" or "TransitionSection", you need to right click and select "Show Package Contents" to move further down the path.

    Alternatively, launch terminal and type in:
    Code:
    open /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/intro.mov
    and for the sound file:
    Code:
    open /System/Library/CoreServices/Setup\ Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/intro-sound.mp3
