I think the Macintosh area is the busiest forum in the board right now, maybe besides the General Section. :p

Edit - And Thanks Dazzla. This'll help all confusion around the forum.

Those screenshots posted look mostly confirmed.

Anyone remember what site they came from? They just earned some serious credibility.

Another site doing semi-live coverate is mymacdealer.com They have a few more details than the live discussion on forosx:

Panther introduction. FreeBSD 5.0. New Finder?now user-centric with iTunes-like interface. Action button?like ctrl (right) clicking. Labels back. Fast search. Dynamic network browsing. Auto-sync files with .Mac.

The BSD5 is a major step forward!

Expose just confirmed as real, I can see real potential in expose.

Expose:

Easy window arranging method. Pressing a function key resizes all windows so they are all viewable. Clicking on a window brings it to the front. It can also resize windows in a single program or document. Also works with multiple-button mice and screen corners. Can also clear all windows to a corner.

Holy crap:

FileVault:

Protects sensitive information. Secures the entire home folder and will encrypt and decrypt files on-the-fly.

How cool?

Less important to us I guess, but he just announced "Pixlet", it's a new codec for Quicktime, studio quality apparently, 48 bits / pixel source data, no noticeable visual artifacts, no inter-frame compression. He showed a Finding Nemo trailer in the format.
