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.

Applescripts and Windows Media Player

Folder action scripts, aren't really comparable to the Gnome Nautilus scripts (or the beos scripts I presume). A folder action script, is a script that implements a method (or methods), that are called if you do an action with the folder.
I have for example a script attached to my movie folder. Whenever I move a divx to my movies folder, it reads the filename, it reads the comment field, and it adds it to my mysql database.

If you want to run a script on a selected folder/file, you have to use the script menu. But I agree with you that Apple should have added the option to add scripts to the (context) menu, at a folder to folder or a system wide basis.

Windows Media Player 9 was demoed at WWDC. One of the main features of Windows Media Player 9 was the plugin support. (They were playing a movie in Safari) I don't know when it will be released, they said fall, so it should be coming pretty soon. Maybe when Panther is actually released.
