    Out of the ten features Steve Jobs showed today for leopard. Which one is your favorite?

    Mine is probably quick look. and then the fact that we can make our own widgets. (even though i dont even use dashboard in tiger...this is exciting to me)

    For me, Time Machine will probably be the most useful, but today, the new UI was the most exciting.

    I may be the only one turned on by it, but I was pretty excited about the .Mac networking features. I use 3 different machines in three locations, and the idea of avoiding iDisk (or hauling stuff around on my PowerBook or iPod) is pretty appealing.

    I think personally, that having the OS run at 64-bit speed is the biggest plus, but I love the new interface....

    Just wish they'd shown some others of the 290 features left...

    Cheers

    I only have one mac right now, but am planning on getting another, and that .Mac feature does sound pretty good. A lot better than it is now, that's for sure, and I've had 2 macs in the past.

    I like Stacks, I liked most of the things though and will be buying Leopard when it comes out.

    Boot Camp. The Sleep/Hibernate instead of complete reboot seems to bridge the gap between virtualization and the whole restart process. Dumps on Parallels & VMWare without completely pulling the rug out from under them.

    All in all, though, it's the unification of the OS and integrated apps, and a tighter, more seamless interoperability.

    Yup, I'm dropping the $129 (or $79...) come October, no doubt about it.

    Oh, Safari3 screams on the Blackbook!

    Finder.
    I've been hoping they'd do pretty much exactly what they're doing for months now... Although now I'm wondering why they just don't do away with iTunes and replace it with a Finder plugin...

    The new file handling features. (Coverflow, Quicklook etc...)

    My least favorite has got to be the impressive, but gimmicky new dock.
    The 3D-perspective-on-glass effect is simply not flying IMO.
    The dock has always been a virtual minefield and a hinderance to productivity;
    It consumes screen real estate in the dimension it's needed most,
    and it pops up if you mouse near it while it's hidden. (Arrgh!)

    I sincerely wish that Apple would just move the stupid thing to a
    dedicated layer; hidden and out of the way until you need it!!!
    That would enable those who do not like it to basically ignore it.

    time machine seems to be most useful, and it's what tiger doesn't have.

    Stacks, Stacks, definitely stacks. I'm not too excited about much else (perhaps Spaces), I just can't wait for a Downloads stack.

    Stacks reminds me a little of simply placing a folder in the dock and right-clicking it.

    Kinda - it's more an evolution of that. Automated functionality - think of it as the "smart" dock folder, that's not really a folder at all.

    Oh and, superfluous visual effects a-go-go! Because it wouldn't be Macrosoft next gen OS without them =)

    Phil Schiller superimposed his mouth onto Ballmer's face using iChat Theater in the keynote.

    New Finder, Desktop (I like the Dock! just put it off screen if you don't need it!), Quicklook ( no more opening Preview to tell one PDF from the other!) and stacks, since so much crap builds up on my desktop. :)

    My favorite new thing in Leopard is iChat if it still has the screen sharing. Otherwise the new Desktop is my favorite. I suspect I might find Quicklook pretty handy once I get my hands on it, but it doesn't actually seem particularly cool.


    EDIT: How could I have forgotten? I think Core Animation is really the best thing about Leopard. I think it will make for some really amazing looking apps in the future.

    .Mac networking — and not just because .Mac finally gets a reason for its existence beyond being a mailbox for me…
