Looks like some new shots of Panther. I've not seen these before:

Neat, I like the subtle change in the general GUI, to be honest I never really liked those thin white stripes.

Yeah, just saw those myself, about 10 minutes ago.

"Revamped Finder"? Wow. Just kinda getting used to the one I'm using.



Think this is some wild, radical departure? Because, the whole point is to be productive and not have to re-learn everything from the ground up ever 12-18 months.

Looks nice. I like the pinstriping being gone/toned down.

If it's snappy and responsive and getting more and more that way with each update, then I'm happy.

Hm... if it's legit, looks pretty cool

Look real. The silvery title bars on the dialog boxes and System Preferences look great, but that brushed metal Finder window is ASS! God, please don't make that be true.

Doesn't Expose' sound a little weird?

While I've not played with it or really know anything about it, my guess is that it'll feel really solid. I don't think we're getting a huge bank of new features, rather Apple is reworking the weak elements of OS X (Finder, etc.) and continuing to improve performance, integration, etc.

I think it's something we'll need to play with. Of course, the shots also have a number of things blanked out, so there may be some surprises yet.

Looks good to me, but the real test will be what it feels like in use.

Prediction: Finder = total rewrite.

post #14 of 209
One thing seemed a little weird to me...I might be wrong and if I am please let me know. Underneath the new iChat video window, there is a green bar. I don't know the purpose of it, just that it looks a lot like a Windows XP bar. Am I smoking something?

Hmmm... can anyone post the direct links to the pics? Or inline here on these boards? Those forums seem to have become overwhelmed

Looks like we don't have a new two button mouse coming though. If you look at the control pannel, notice it is just the regular old pro-mouse. Maybe that icon will change though come the final version. \
post #19 of 209
Someone jump on AIM and send me the pictures. "brainchild2b" I will have them mirrored (I work at web hosting company) as 4osx is getting slammed.

I can post them to the forums here then. Let me know.

Sure I can take 'em. I've got school bandwidth that's just going to rot here during the summer

Just email them to me: bitethisspiders@foobar.you

Edit: Looks like webmail beat me to it. Oh, and don't mind the spider bait

Take a close look at the top of the mouse....where the wire usually is.

Hrm. I did get through to the post finally, but there aren't any pictures there.
post #24 of 209
I don't see any images either.
Is it a bandwith issue, or did Apple pounce again?
post #25 of 209
Alright here they are:

Pictures Removed. The moderator mirrored them. I don't need problems from Apple
post #26 of 209
Can someone please set up a mirror? I'm getting 404s on the images.

EDIT: Thank you!

That's true.... but it is still a one button mouse which means I'll still have to use my Logitech mouse to be productive and happy.

Overall I like the quick silver look and for the most part what I've seen, but if this is all we get, I'll be kinda disappointed. I expected this to be BIGGER than Jaguar. What's the deal with censoring iChat. There must be some pretty kick a$$ features they're hiding to make the "Stevenote" at least somewhat exciting.

From what it looks like mail, address book, and ical could still be developed more and integrated more the way the iLife suite is. But maybe this is an early build. Maybe they will be released separately and just require Panther. Or maybe the features are just hidden in the menu bar. I guess we won't know until after Monday's "Stevenote."

One thing I know for sure though, Apple is back, and I want a Mac again!
post #28 of 209
God, I really hope that have the brushed metal interface as an option, and not the default. What is Apple smoking? That stuff is just totally, brutally ugly.
post #29 of 209
I'm guessing theses pictures are from a early build. Also notice how strip out the control panel is?

If this were from a developer Apple wouldn't have changed the mouse icon, they wouldn't have wanted developers to know about exciting new hardware.

I like that a bunch of icons are blocked. either new apps or stuff that cna tie it to that person.

expose is a killer feature that will help with window clutter. I love it I've wanted something like this forever. Way to go Apple!

The caption seems to imply with 'here is the new Finder with the Brushed Metal appearance" that it is selectable.

While cool, they probably do not do Panther justice. Screens of Jag didn't seem like a big deal either... but then I used it and WOW.

Unlike hardware, it is pretty difficult to convey usablity and features with a screen grab.

Looks like Looprumors was correct about more brushed metal look

I think the brushed metal is going to be an "option"

MacRumors makes it sound like it "is" the new look. I think there will be an option to turn on the metal look.

Don't post mirrors on your .Mac accounts folks. Apple will terminate your accounts

Really? Are they jumping on this that quickly that your post was already removed? Or was that just your better judgement kicking in seconds after you posted?

If you can turn on the metal look how come it isn't on the menu bar? If that's the way it is that's kind of stupid. Personally I welcome the metal look but it should be system wide.

i removed my post since i had provided inline links to the original pictures hosted on the original server but someone in this thread had already set up a mirror and provided inline images.

so, it was excessive
