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.

Appliccation Compatibility

"Microsoft always tries to retain as much compatibility with previous versions as possible while Apple doesn't."

Except with Word, PowerPoint and Visio....{from personal experience}

"I noticed that with Jaguar and I noticed the same with Panther: about 10-20% of the third party applications just won't load anymore, or they will crash on load."

Could you name a few? I have been testing Panther on my applications, and haven't noticed any difficulty. I would be extremely interested in learning what might be causing this...so I can avoid it. (without knowing more, I'm guessing that those apps were using some of the unpublished/private APIs that got removed in Panther).
