Agree. As someone else pointed out at another forum, if you had access to Panther and made the decision to leak images why not produce a detailed documentation of the new OS.

in the "about the finder window" in the screenshot, why is it trademark and copywrited 2002? if this is gonna be a new os pretty much, wouldnt it be TM'd 2003? especially since in the "about this mac" window it says 2003. :confused: the pile though looks kinda cool.

Two good reasons

There are two good reasons to believe these "Panther Screenshots" are fake:

Arn doesn't buy them.

Apple legal has not come to crush the rumor and pull the images.

Remember the prelim MMD schematic? The heat came fast and furious on that one.

True hardware rumor test:

If it is a major renovation or new product that Apple wants to keep the element of surprise on, then expect to--

a) see hastily leaked documents illustrating the item, and
b) MINUTES later, not hours or days, said documents or images being replaced by Apple legal disclaimers.

If an image or alleged internal document is bantied about for a week on the rumor sites, it's likely a fake.

Rule of thumb: if a rumor looks juicy, save any related sites to your HD. If they are pulled 10 minutes later, you've got a winner...

well not really, look at the about finder window, ours says 2002. everything looks right on that picture, cant find any messups if it was fake. developers probably dont worry about little things like that until the end. we have had 10.2.5 come out and it still says 2002.

anyone get em?

That site seemed to go down pretty quickly, hehe. Anyone get pics so we can view em? Wonder what the fuss is all about. I haven't seen it yet, but I'd just assume they were fake considering how Apple would feel to let screeny's get leaked.

hey those look interesting. now whether they are real or not it isn't at all far fetched...like that ridiculous apple ipod mouse phone...phhh. it really could be panther screenshots. while there is no evidence that they are real there is also no evidence that they are false...is there?

personally, i see no reason to believe these are fake.

the 2002 thing is acceptable in my view and as for 'apple legal', jaguar builds were floating around for ages, screenshots aplenty, i have a feeling, though i am not a lawyer, that the laws are different for screenshots. it is a breach of contract to release such screenshots, but i don't believe it is against the law to show screenshots.

The weirdest thing....

Is that the buld number is right beside the version...
Sure.. they could've changed it but isn't that a bit wtf?! :)

in 10.2 u have to click on the version so that the build number appears..

Well, it does jump a version number. And they do change things. I believe its legit.

I got the images on my webspace if anyone finds the others slow

Good Strategy

I wouldnt be surprised if Steve had these leaked intentionally. With questions coming up about why the G5 isnt out and how motorola isnt going to be putting out any faster processors, mac users need hope, and this is a worthwhile distraction.
