Don't want to hotlink all the images so click the about this mac to go to the rest.
Interesting. If it's really that fast, I might just install it on an external and have a go myself.
Does this mean we also get software updates via the beta, instead of having to make completely new installations each time a release is released? If so, I'm very close to trying this out.
Interesting. The 'About QuickTime' screenshot shows an expiration date of March 11, 2009. The day before is a Tuesday.
But seriously, could we be seeing a March 10th release date?
From what I've heard, that is correct.
Yes, you get software updates through the regular dialog. As of now, the only thing available is a wifi update. And yes, its fast. And no, you shouldn't install it unless you were given a copy.
wow I'm excited by this already!
Thanks for sharing... but aren't you under the NDA? >.>
Interesting. Thanks for posting about this!
It doesn't take me anywhere close to an hour to do a clean install of Leopard. 40 minutes tops, and that's installing everything on the disk.
I just wish they'd picked another name. I suggest Ocelot, Lion, or Cougar for 10.7.
I think some are forgetting that doing a clean install of Leopard on a new machine, usually also means that iLife gets installed as well, which is huge...
This new OS is user-feature-wise very similar to Leopard, so giving it a "Leopard-esque" name is a good idea. It's more a Leopard done well, suitable only for x86, multi-core very much needed, good grfx wanted, and 64 bits is recommended.
That's funny. I didn't know that 40 minutes was less then 15...
In regards to a name, I disagree because its not aesthetically different enough and uninformed people would accuse them of re-branding Leopard and selling it again.
Can they really do this? Is it legal?
Anyway, the changes look OK, I guess.
OP stated 13 min for Snow Leopard, 1 hour for Leopard.
G-Com stated 40 minutes for Leopard.
Thanks for the info. I'd have installed it already if not for a lack of space on my external. Will likely wait for a more stable release before making it my day-to-day OS.
Fine, but it seems like an odd complaint to make... OS installations take different times for different peoples. This comparison is valid for this specific machine, his comment makes no positive contribution to the thread.
What about the file system? It's not ZFS is it?
Its not ZFS. Its still using HFS+
Have you seen if iSCSI initiator is back in? It was dropped from the Leopard tree just before G.A. I believe it was in Disk Utility, under the File menu.
Thanks in advance...
Hopefully this helps. Looks like the answer is no.
what browser is that?
Firefox 3, to be precise. I hate that theme. I installed the GrDelicious Apple theme and it looks like Safari now
I prefer the new FF look, but I also downloaded that Safari theme. Looks amazingly awesome
Indeed. It looks perfect and makes firefox much sleeker (the top bar isn't so gimungous).
More to the point, 13 minutes is astonishingly fast -- even imaging a pre-configured copy of the OS onto a drive takes nearly that long... and that's surprising, given that on the surface they state the install process looks similar to the one for Leopard.
For the skeptical or the curious;
Any distortion or weirdness is a result of the little point and shoot used.
