Four screenshots of MacOSX 10.2 (codenamed Jaguar) have been leaked on the web, via SpyMac. In the screens, you can see some new additions to the preference panel, like tools for cameras and another one, dubbed “Screen Effects”. In the dock closeup shot, you can see that on the right of each open minimized application a 16×16 icon is displayed, making easy to understand which application is which. Please note that the specific GUI addition was requested around a year ago by a GUI expert in an editorial at his web page! Another interesting addition is the indexing capabilities in the file system and the Finder preferences as shown in the larger screenshot. Update: More screenshots added to the above linked page.
MacOSX Jaguar Screenshots Leaked
2002-05-08 macOS 11 Comments
Reminds me of a VERY pimped up CDE.
…Mac OS X gives me major wood.
A few control panels, an iChat app…
MacOS X looked interesting, but I had 5h30-6h of battery autonomy when running on MacOS (I mainly type text being journalist) and when running MacOS X I never had more than 3 hours of autonomy. Has Apple integrated those power saving features like processor speed reduction and so on onto MacOS X ?
Some stuff was also annoying like the FTP server included with MacOS X and I always got people having trouble with the passive/active stuff.
My iBook nows runs OpenBSD/snapshot (a 3.1). MacOS X was nice but real good tools and conformance to how a BSD works is more important that eye candy stuff. Like we say in french: “On n’a qu’une seule occasion de faire une premiere impression” 😉
they all look like the same normal Aqua…..
tell me again why this is news? I don’t remember any hype about jaguar having some new interface.
though, I do see that Apple has decided o move the application controls off the window and have it pop up above the menues, as can be seen in the screenshot of the PDF viewer in action. that will make working with things like Appleworks nicer I guess, but it takes up screen realestate.
anyway, ther is nothing realy NEW with the look of Jaguar so what do we care about screenshots?
Jaguar will be synced with BSD 4.4
so if that is not conformence, then I don’t know what is……BTW…this is not BSD, it is Darwin, so don’t blame an operating sytem for not being the one you want.
that is like saying “well windows is not realy that good becasue it does not conform to how Linux works”
ok, ok I know there are people who agree with that, but realy, should you use another operating system and expect it to work like another one?
The screenshots don’t tell the story behind what’s coming by the end of summer, which by any account is impressive:
1. Almost complete autonomous integration of Bluetooth (I think) and Windows (definately) networking with Rendevous.
2. A whole new printing system
3. A built in QuickTime streaming server on each OS X machine
4. OpenGL acceleration of the *entire interface* through graphics cards. Something that Windows is talking about for their *next* release
5. Mail, iPhoto and iChat all integrated and working with AOL and Exchange servers
6. A true network appliance.
Am I forgeting something? Along with the overall acceleration of the performance of Aqua this is a major deal.
Does that exist yet? or has some other place “consumed” it. Mirror, mirror, the wall: where are you?
Btw OS X will be synched with FreeBSD 4.4 (or in words of the apple release will receive “updates” from). I think the distinction is important, especially in light of the recent Linux=Redhat faux pas; and also to avoid confusion with BSD4.4 and Lite.
Is it just me, or is anyone else finding that site impossibly unloadable? I am not getting any images at all…
Works fine for me…
I’m sure if I looked I could find out, but how will this be deployed? Will this be another cd update, like 10.1 was? Or will this be automatically downloaded via the online update?
