Mac OS X OSNews reviews Apple's latest OS upgrade. Is it an overpriced, glorified point release or a truly worthy upgrade with major new functionality? Is it a Longhorn killer or just more of the same? We'll take a look, and try to see what's on the surface as well as what's under the hood.

Microsoft Paint?

Well, to be honest, when I am with Windows (I develop in Visual Studio.NET) i have to take quick screenshots. Paint is the fastest and lightest app to accomplish that without having to pay shareware nor anything.
Print Screen (or alt-print screen to capture the focused window), open paint (have a quick shorctut) paste, save.

Very "Manual" but for free and quick. It also saves .PNGs. Forget about "editting it", that's not possible because it sucks.

One thing that I found missing from OSX when I switched after years of Windows and OS/2, was the ability to browse a folder with pictures quickly. iPhoto may be nice, but it's not for quick browsing. In windows double click a pic, you've got the pic preview which lets you page up/down throughout the whole dir. That's great. Preview sucks at that, because you have to open the file in ADVANCE (read: select all, open) -> which results in "n" images loaded in memory. Not good. :p

We'll see how Tiger solves this.
