Hah! I was right! I said before they needed a replacement for the finder that more closely suited the needs and intentional limitations of education, and now they're making a simplified finder with improved network management - the core of such a design - with an eye towards education. Outstanding - now they need some network (classroom) oriented education apps to go with it, and some light durable inexpensive school-oriented hardware to go with it. Cool.
Of course! Just after I registered a shareware app to do make thumbnails for me! (I forget which one)Jobs on new Jaguar features: Finder improvements -- integrated search, multithreading support, automatic thumbnail creation.

Damn, now we have to wait for the release of the OSX.2, which won't be anytime soon.
I do like the QT6 integration, but again, does that mean we have to wait until OSX.2 comes out or do we get that sooner?
Uuugghhh, too many questions and not enough answers......

Quartz Extreme: Takes the compositing engine in Quartz, and accelerates it in graphics cards. Combines 2D, 3D and video in one hardware pipeline via OpenGL. "Everything on the screen is being drawn in hardware by OpenGL." Requires AGP 2x and 32MB of video RAM.
It is not possible on older graphics cards like RAGE 128 cards, said Jobs -- that means it'll work on newer iMacs and eMacs, but not on older machines, he emphasized. AGP 2x and 32MB video RAM are required for this new technology.
I would guess those features would just be like today - software rendered by the CPI.Originally posted by dukestreet
What will they do for the older machines now? Will you only be able to install parts of the OSX.2 depending on your hardware config?
