Apple’s Leopard is looking good!

Posted on: October 23, 2007

While I don’t agree with Steve Borsch when he says that “Leopard will be Apple’s tipping point”, I do agree that Apple has and is continuously making headway in the market.
So far, the upgrades included with Apple’s OS Leopard looks to be quite impressive with 300+ upgrades. Being a Mac user, the feature I’m looking forward to the most is Time Machine. I’m always reminding myself to run backups but to actually do it..well that’s a different story. Time Machine looks like it’s going to be amazingly simple to backup; so simple that even the most non-technical user will be happy using it.

Parental Controls included. This is something that many parents today are concerned with. Parents are paying more and more attention to what their children are doing on the internet and what sites they’re visiting. Some of the nice features included are the in depth logging and the bed time and time limits.

Dashcode. This will be of interest to all you web developers. Imagine libraries of thousands of widgets, as well as widgets that provide functionality of any application created. Many of us have no idea what widgets are and really don’t care, but for those that do Dashcode is something to take notice of.

BootCamp. Finally an official feature, and all of the beta support is now ending. BootCamp boasts to run Windows at native speed and has drivers galore (no more searching!).

More upgrades are included and I for one can’t wait to see all of the features as well as ease of use that Leopard has to offer.
