Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

Great review, Thom. I agree that Leopard is a nice step, and Quick Look seals the deal for me.

One thing I want to mention is "stationary" in Mail. You said

more commonly known among us geeks and nerds as annoying html email.


I think this stems from some sort of elitist holdover from some core geeks who believe email should remain plain text only. I happen to use plain text email, but the fact is that the rest of the world uses it differently, and it is very useful to have things embedded.

When people tell me HTML email is evil, I always press them to tell me why. Except for embedded scripts, which are usually blocked these days, I don't know why "geeks" have a mission against it. If people are anti-HTML, they ought to close down their browsers and go back to elinks and USENET, after all, their browsers usually use the same rendering engine as their email client.
