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.

WMV on Panther? Bad idea.

MS endorses and promotes the strictest RIAA/MPAA/Ashcroft bullying of end-users. Don't kid yourselves WMV would open your Mac to MS-grade DRM, if only for WM files today. Tomorrow, in the name of "openness", WMV will want to display all of your media.

Sorry, but I prefer to keep my viewing preferences to myself. If I miss out on a decreasing number of WMV-only files because of that, tough.

I don't use PayPal, I don't use eBay, I don't use WMV, I don't fly JetBlue. If you want to be spied upon, that's up to you, but me let Ashcroft search my soul the old fashioned way by buying a judge.
