Some things to pass the time until next Friday's Leopard release:
- Brush up on Apple's 300 new features so that you can recite them from memory.
- Review Leopard's "top secret features" that Apple didn't want to divulge too early so that Redmond couldn't start their photocopiers.
- Study the 16 Coolest New Features In Mac OS X 10.5 That You Didn’t Know About
- Also worth a look are some of features that caught Adrian Kingsley-Hughes' eye in Leopard has more “Wow!” than Vista … in theory anyway
If you're an interface hacker and just can't wait to have the Leopard UI, you can practice by installing the Space and Grass desktop pictures. Then install ShapeShifter (US$20) and Clear Dock (free) and Liger. Liger makes the menu bar semi-transparent, allows you to make the dock background similar to the angled one from Tiger and even gives you the Leopard folder icon set.
