Is this a first? I don't remember them doing this before. It always used to bug me that Steve would brag about "150 new features," with no way to see what those alleged features were.

Wow. Instant screen sharing from the Finder. I must have missed that in the Keynote. cool.

They were obviously scraping the bottom of the barrel by the time they got to the extra features of "Terminal". Four separate features related to tabs: firstly you can use tabs, secondly you can turn a tab into a window, thirdly you can turn some windows into a tab group, and finally you can *move* the tabs. Hmmm...

I'm still waiting to see what the supposedly top secret features of Leopard are. I am hoping but I know my hopes will be crushed that these don't consist of CoverFlow in Finder or Quickview in Finder. Those are natural evolutionary extensions of what already exists in the OS, not ground breaking new features that will make you stop what you are doing and wonder how you worked without them.

pmccann: Actually, I usually have Terminal window open. So, I was very pleased to read about its new features.

pmccann - Do you prefer the Terminal over X11 xterm? Pros?

Maybe it's just my settings, but I have found the text readability in Terminal better than what I have in xTerm. It's certainly easier to adjust. Plus, it makes it simpler to cut/paste, drag files/folders into the terminal window to instantly get the path, adds Applescriptability, integrates with Services, etc.

I think there's a problem with the countdown, unless there's something hidden here. I'm from about 10 hours distance from the local time of San Francisco, and still the countdown on the main page shows that Leopard will be available in my country on October 26th, 6pm. Anyone else can confirm this weirdness?
