My Dashboard loads slightly faster in Leopard. But the real improvement is that I noticed as Dashboard is loading, it feels like nothing else is effected in my system. Before, Dashboard would bring everything to a grinding halt as it loaded.

What an idiot! You have to click on the text "Version 10.5" to switch at the string "build 9aXXX".

One simple word: IDIOT.


What a douche bag....i'm sure you've known everything since your conception....{censored} head

I was just about to ask that, thanks :) :angel:

I totally agree, Dashboard on Tiger is so laggy and just sucks our ram, i'm sure there was spot for improvement.

Has any one looked into the possibility that the Safari DL problem may be related only the version of 9A559 installed re-packed and seeded by Ayanami?
Is it possible to take a poll of those with / without the issue and which version they have; Ayanami's or an actual "legit" Apple seed?

Curious as the talk of the town is that this 9A559 is the GM...yet this problem exists for many people.

....and what IS the deal with 9A567? is that an unofficial, or internal to Apple number or what?

9a559 is not the GM. A couple of internal builds surfaced after 9a559 with the latest one being the GM.

The Safari download problem exists with the ADC downloaded build 9A559.

9A559 is not GM, 9A581 is. 9A567 was just another internal build that was never released externally.

I was wondering why does everyone seem to hate the to-be-gone brushed metal interface?

It looks increasingly dated and the brushed texture is kinda cheesy.

Been waiting for it to go for years now. Hallelujah!

I just wish Apple would make it EASY for people to modify the look of their computer to their own styles. I understand the necessity for inexperienced users and Apple wanting a basic design, but why not make it available to others who want to change it.

Yeah, customization of it couldn't be that difficult for them to include... Would be a nice thing in a Leo update at some point :D To be honest, brushed metal combined with the traffic light buttons is quite a UI prettiness... certainly one of the most standing-out things for a generic user, a potential switcher etc. I mean, it can't feel that old ;) I understand, though, that with frequent use it can get kind of 'heavy' or tiring, all those thick borders and whatnot.

Because people don't know whats good for them, one of the worlds best UI teams working for months on end vs some home user picking colours and sizes arbitrarily. No contest


Also I think apple are from the "if you feel the need to include customisability then you didn't design it right" camp, same as me.

OK, I finally registered here. There's some stuff that Apple hasn't shown in Leopard and I haven't seen anyone talk about, here is one of them.

If you open up the dock.app bundle and issue a "strings dock" command from the terminal on the actual executable (in the MacOS directory inside the bundle) you can see a list of the text strings in the application. This is one way that people find hidden preferences. In that list of strings you'd see that they assign each icon in the dock a different type, there are a bunch of different types, but the one I want to talk about is recents-tile which lets you add the equivalent of the apple menu recent items as stacks in your dock.

To do this the easiest way is to add a folder to the dock and it'll turn into a stack. Now open up the com.apple.dock.plist file from your ~/library/preferences/ folder in the plist editor (it uses the binary format so you'll need the editor from the developer tools or you'll need to convert it to text and back with plutil). The stack you created is in persistant-others, it should be easy enough to find. Change the tile-type tag to "recents-tile" and save. Open up a terminal window, and kill the dock process. It'll restart and you'll see that the stack icon has changed into a Recent Applications stack. If you right-click on it you can choose from a few different types.

agreed 100% Customizing the UI just increases the possibility of f'ing up the OS

Great find - thanks!
P.S. What's with the Safari icon in your dock...with the gold?

The gold Safari icon is the Webkit safari browser. Can be found here: nightly.webkit.org/

That's webkit. Apple put a gold frame on the nightly binaries of webkit so you'd know which one was active. EDIT: Ah, too late, I see now. :(
