  1. Mac OS X 10.6 Builds progressing....

    Woops, I forgot to update my signature. I'm running 10.5.2 on both my machines (it used to say 10.4). It should show that now.
  2. Mac OS X 10.6 Builds progressing....

    That's true, and it does contradict what I've said. I guess if Steve talks about 10.6 any more than announcing its name in June, it'll tell us how soon it will be released.
  3. Mac OS X 10.6 Builds progressing....

    Steve actually announced a few years ago that OS X's release cycle would slow down to about every 18-24 or 24-30 months (I don't recall which one). 10.6 won't be release for at least 2 years from right now, if not till the end of 2010 or 2011. In the beginning, yes, OS X was released almost on a yearly basis, but if you look at the distances between the releases, they have been increasing steadily over time and should peak at the time it took between Tiger and Leopard. Also, there's no real prediction for how "major" a release of OS X will be. However, there will never be such thing as a release like 10.1, which you seem to be predicting 10.6 will be. If you look at all the OS X releases except for 10.1, they have all been relatively major.
  4. Mac OS X 10.6 Builds progressing....

    The most Steve might do in June is announce the name of 10.6, as he did with Leopard the WWDC right after Tiger was released. We probably won't see any functioning previews of the OS until 2009 and a release in 2010 or 2011.
  5. The reason why some of the icons look different in the screenshots is that Apple always makes a high-DPI photoshop mockup instead of producing actual screenies. Since the images are made for the press (and print), Apple usually ups the contrast on certain objects and tweaks them overall to look better on paper and at bigger sizes than normal.
  6. 9A466 Front Row?

    Apple + Esc
  7. Bluetooth Keyboard & Eject Button

    I also have a Bluetooth keyboard and unfortunately I believe the eject/volume keys don't work on them whatsoever. Basically the work-around is to go into My Computer, right-click on the disc you have, and click eject whenever you need to eject it. If it's a Mac Pro where the drive comes out, you simply push it back in once you put the disc in. Works every time!
  8. Poof sound when I'm doing nothing..

    You sure it's not just iChat? When someone signs off, it makes the same/a similar sound.
  9. If they only have 3 months...

    What builds? The only purpose of the betas that Apple sends out is for developers to support Leopard in their applications. All they need are the core foundations of Leopard, such as Core Animation, etc., and no "secret features". 3 months is plenty of time for Apple to finalize Leopard.
  10. Here are two icons of the apple tv in the front and top views. Enjoy! Click the preview to download
  11. Mac Pro Bug

    I also have a stock Mac Pro and Vista still has the video drivers bug. Way to go with "Vista support"!
  12. Running aTV OS on Intel Macs

    Elaborate please?
  13. Running aTV OS on Intel Macs

    The OS is a modified version of 10.4.7, so maybe try putting the kernel from there into it.
  14. Make Apple TV OS run on a regular PC?

    I looked around in the HD image and found out that the OS is 10.4.7, build 8N5107, if that might help.
  15. Leopard, where are you?

    Haxies don't use InputManager and have nothing to do with it. However, addons like Chax, SIMBL, SafariStand, etc., will be rendered useless.
