You don't understand the "Beta" concept very well.

Is Leopard even at "Beta" yet? I thought it was just a technology preview...

It's a new OS version carrying a next generation build number that's still in development. So yeah that would be considered a beta.

7Axxx = v10.3 Panther

8Axxx = v10.4 Tiger

9Axxx = v10.5 Leopard

Does it really matter how it's called? Regardless what label you give it, at the end of the day it's still an unfinished product that's likely to undergo further changes.

Leopard seems to actually contain a resolution independent UI. As you can see most of the control buttons are vectored but the titlebar background isn't yet.

[snipped image...]

Looks like Apple is beating Microsoft to it.

Nice! :cool:

Then again, Tiger doesn't look too bad when scaled up. It get's pixelated (since all the controls are raster images), but everything stays in proportion. Text resizes properly. But try scaling Opera or FF, they look like complete crap.

EDIT: Are those large icons still raster or are they PDF/SVG/<other vector format>?

Another thing I came across, huge application icon sizes:

Those are pretty nice.

Expose and Spaces icons just suck, though that time machine one is pretty slick.
I agree.

Thanks for sharing that info and those images Neowave.

This is a great thread, feel so excited :D

It means the operating system's GUI will work and look "correct" at any resolution.

It means you can scale the entire resolution (like you would with your Desktop/folder icons) to whatever size you want without loosing quality. On high resolution/dpi screens current interfaces will become too small for practical usage, a resolution independent interface can scale bigger to correct that problem.

That Safari icon is stunning at that size. :yes: :woot:

Does that mean it would still work on LCD displays that can only really work well at their native resolution?
