I tried Panther and it was beatiful, it was snappy even in my ibook 700. Sadly i sold my ibook today, maybe i go with Gentoo on my PC. Atleast no more Micro****.

Needed the money, maybe later i'll get G5. But that's when i am far richer than now.

And of course it's all hardware accelerated with quartz extreme. The windows aren't static either, so if you have a movie playing, it'll keep playing in the mini window. If you have a chat convo going, it will keep going in the mini windows. It's cool as hell.

holy crap you're right!! never noticed that (goes off and plays some more)

For those who haven't seen it in action, check out fast user switching. Impressive to say the least:

Right click to download

How does fast switching work?

Is it like the PC where you can essentialy log off and leave the computer. Ready for someone else.

Or is it like how it seems on apples site where the user enters there password on your desktop with your desktop visible.

You can choose login screen from the menu with all the user name on it, so yes it can be used in the same way as xp

Could someone post a screenshot of Panther's QuickTime 6.4 main window? I've seen some shots of QuickTime with flat buttons (iTunes 4 style) and I wonder whether they come by default? If so, FINALLY!

That is a sweet effect, and it is really smooth and nice :p

I wish it did that effect when I single user logged in, that would be cool :p

Those are the default buttons - All I have done is installed the MPEG2 decoder and registered for QuickTime Pro, those buttons were there before I did that too.

LOL Fluid! True, maybe they can bring it back, but keep the hide function on the Dock icons, i hated having to go to the App menu to hide an App, or "HEAVEN Forbid" have to reach over to my keyboard 2 do it :p
