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.

Old-style finder windows option?

Thanks for the review; it's the first comprehensive look at Panther I have read.

Of course I am curious whether Apple has fixed my favourite OS X irritation yet: does the Open Files dialog box show the contents of the desktop on the actual desktop, as it used to in OS 9, or are all of the desktop items that aren't disks still split off into a "desktop" folder buried somewhere in the folder hierarchy?

Also, about this new Finder design - in previous versions of OS X, it has been possible to turn off all the new widgety stuff and continue using the Finder in its classic mode. Is this still possible in Jaguar, or are you forced to use the new metal windows?

Thank you.
