So I’m posting from Mac OS X Leopard for a couple of days now… So far… So good.
I’m pleasantly surprised at how easy the switch was… Leopard went in and grabbed everything including my applications and settings and they all seem to work okay with the exception of Google Earth… And I just need to download an update. Even PhotoShop works. Norton AntiVirus and all of the third party applications I had seem to work too.
CoverFlow in the folders is cool… But I found out that it works too good! CoverFlow will even show images in supposedly “secret” folders
(porn) that previously were well stashed… Just go to “All Images” in the “Search For” pane and Leopard will bring up every picture on the computer! … Same for “All Movies”… Fair Warning! Get yourself a spare external drive that you can keep locked away!
We had fun with “Screen Sharing” … It’s so easy to swap computers with someone! I ask for permission to share screens from a chat window… And if accepted… I instantly get your screen on my computer… I am literally sitting in your seat! I can do anything you can do. No more 2 hour phone calls trying to figure out what the heck someone is trying to describe is happening to their machine! I can also only give viewing rights so that I can show someone exactly how to do something… They literally see me do it. I can even do a theater type thing where I can put my screen on more than one computer anywhere and run through a Powerpoint or anything I want them to see. Seriously Impressive, Mr. Jobs!
And before anyone gets antsy about security… I un-check one box and my machine is locked back down. And there’s a flashing red icon that lets me know that my screen is being shared. It’s also easy to set up a list of people who are allowed to request screen sharing. It’s a buddy list that I can block and lock from.
So Far … So Good… I like it.
