Mac OS X I was able to try out and preview Mac OS X Panther 10.3 for the past few months after WWDC and for the last few days I am running a latest version. So, what to expect from Mac OS X when it comes out on the evening of October 24th? Come in and have a look in this preview article. Update: screenshots removed at request of Apple.

>is X11 now included in the default install.

It is included in the third CD, but it is not installed by default. During installation you have to tick its checkbox that you want it installed.

> when you launched the Gnome Desktop, is this equilavent to 'vmware' or is it actually a true gnome desktop running on top of Aqua.

Haha, none of the two. ;)
It is running on my Slackware machine and then I redirect its display over the network, so instead of loads Gnome on the Slackware X server, it loads it on OSX's. And as you can see, I use "Xnest", which is a progam that will allow you to have Gnome/KDE/etc running on a window instead of taking over MacOSX's rootless X11 desktop. I can understand your confusion though, it is pretty confusing for most. ;)
