Guest trancepriest Posted October 25 Report Share Posted October 25 My Mac Pro 8 core is even faster now than before. The multi-core optimization is so real. Before I was having a problem with Frame Controls in Compressor 3 (all Mac Pro 8 cores were affected) jobs were taking forever compared to a G5 or Quad Mac Pro.. even the MBP's. A transcode job that would take me an hour before is now 12 minutes.AutoFS mounting of network volumes is bad ass. No more spinning beachball when you forget to unmount a network volume. I am a happy man. I'm still looking into the unknown features. People really got to be idiots to buy a PC now... complete fools.... brain dead zombie fools. I'm never ever touching a Windows OS again... NEVER.Features I like the most:Multicore OptimizedTake full advantage of modern architectures with multiple processor cores with improved scheduling, memory management, and processor affinity algorithms.AutoFSAutomatically mount and dismount network filesystems on separate threads to improve responsiveness and reliability.Quick LookLook inside any document without launching an application. Use Quick Look with documents, images, songs, and movies and get a large-size preview of the file. Flip through multipage documents, preview movies, even add images to iPhoto. You can use Quick Look in Finder, Mail, and Time Machine.Full History SearchEasily find web pages you have visited. Safari indexes all of the text in websites that you browse. Even weeks later, Safari will be able to find a web page that matches your search.Search Shared MacsSearch any Mac on your network. Use Spotlight to find files just like you do on your Mac — by name, contents, or even metadata. You can search any connected Mac with Personal File Sharing enabled or a file server that’s sharing its files.Time Machine (this backup feature and the way Apple implemented it is revolutionary).iChat (so many new features... all wicked)Instant Screen Sharing from the Finder (already using this extensively)Start an interactive screen sharing session with other Macs on your network. Just select the Mac from your sidebar and (if authorized) you can see and control the Mac as if you were right in front of it. Change a system preference, publish an iPhoto library, or add a new playlist to iTunes.Guest Log-In AccountsAllow anyone to surf the web and check email as a guest on your Mac. When they log out of the guest account, Mac OS X purges the account, removing any trace of their activity. So each time someone logs in as a guest, he or she gets a fresh, unused account.Library RandomizationDefend against attackers with no effort at all. One of the most common security breaches occurs when a hacker’s code calls a known memory address to have a system function execute malicious code. Leopard frustrates this plan by relocating system libraries to one of several thousand possible randomly assigned addresses.UNIXÂ® Certification (I'm running UNIX baby)Mac OS X is now a fully certified UNIX operating system, conforming to both the Single UNIX Specification (SUSv3) and POSIX 1003.1. Deploy Leopard in environments that demand full UNIX conformance and enjoy expanded support for open standards popular in the UNIX community such as the OASIS Open Document Format (ODF) or ECMA’s Office XML.
