I didn't know that it has an RPN calculator, but he's right, it doesI don't know what half of those features mean, and among the rest are not really features in the sense that they're something you can directly use - like "firewall log" or "RPN calculator".
My exact thougts! Nermal, or anyone with Tiger installed, is there a significant speed boost? And I'm sorry, but I think Finder sucks bad. Going to Windows Explorer is one of the only preferable thing to using my Windows machine.wowoah said:Does anyone know if there are any speed performances? That was the serious clincher for me in buying 10.3, the incredible speed boost I got from it.
I also really wish Apple would fix up the Finder a bit, it's so limited it's embarassing. Please Apple, if you do little else for 10.5, IMPROVE THE FINDER!!
Very true.Blue Velvet said:On the other hand, maybe I'm just being overly sceptical but it's interesting to note that the people who have acquired early copies are not coming here and raving about it.
It might not be worth so much now, but I think it'll be worth more once developers start pushing out Core-based apps.rmhop81 said:i may get it if it's for $15 on my on campus store...but i won't shell out alot of money for it....just not worth it.
Not so:rmhop81 said:why don't people use konfabulator? i've used that program for awhile and apple just ripped that company off by creating dashboard, which is the exact same thing.
I'd like to know why a total desktop change is needed before people except a new version as a worthy release. Why does there have to be a huge cosmetic difference, I'd prefer under the hood enhancements. Its one critisim of Longhorn, the UI is changing drastically for its release, most suspect the change has been done because they can and not because they should. But then maybe like I pointed out just before, a desktop change in needed before people except a new version as a worthy release.nagromme said:The question we must ask is... what defines a "revolution" worth $69-$95?
Is it something with 50 groundbreaking things that will instantly change how we work? (Sounds great--but disruptive!)
Or is it something with half a dozen big new features and hundreds of small ones, about half of which will affect any one user?
The latter is plenty to meet my expectations. The former is unlikely.
And I'm glad the UI isn't changing radically at every version.
It is stupid things like this that regress an application or OS.Nermal said:But so far, Tiger's been pretty good, expect that you can't customise number formats anymore, which is a pain considering that the default formats for NZ are wrong!
Can't change number formats? What the hell are you talking about?Stella said:It is stupid things like this that regress an application or OS.
I take it you have Tiger and cannot change number formats?
I wish apple had taken the time to improve Finder.. like for instance, grouping directories - keeping them separate from files.

In Panther, this same menu has a customize button next to the numbers that lets you swap commas and decimals, for those countries that represent one thousand and a half like:ethank said:Can't change number formats? What the hell are you talking about?
