If the Help Center loads instead, then it's a Carbon app.
Well it highlights the Macintosh HD icon, though no question mark cursor.
Over all speed seems a lot faster. Putting stuff into the dock is fast, not sure about faster though.
It feels like Mac OS X has really matured in many ways and I really do think this will be the clad iron UNIX OS for the rest of us.
I am no guru on UNIX but it just feels...solid and beautiful. No more pin stripes on anything, not even an option. Beautiful new UI changes in the various Preference panes. Font Book looks just incredible. Good-bye ATM Adobe!
In Address Book you can create a template with what shows up when you do a new contact. You can also check a box that will automatically format phone numbers. You can add LDAP servers with one click.
In Image Capture you can now share scanners and cameras over web-sharing. Nothing on additional scanner drivers though.
Print dialogs now have Preview Save As PDF... Fax Cancel and print. You also get more options, Copies and Pages, Layout, Scheduler (you can tell it to print the document at a specific time!), ColorSync, and Summary.
Now under the edit menu in applications you have, Find, Spelling and Speech.
Contextual menus in the finder now include, New Folder, Get Info, Change Desktop Background..., Enable Finder Actions and Configure Folder Actions. When control clicking on an item in the finder you get, Open, Get Info, Color Label, Move to Trash, Duplicate, Make Alias, Copy, Enable Folder Actions, and Configure Folder Actions...
