Preview in Tiger I think it was had a Play button that you could add to the toolbar - that's pretty weird that it left and that you can't view them.
Re other things being said: I fully agree on the versioning thing - I thought Tiger's 10.4.10 and 10.4.11 would have sorted that out for people once and for all. History would suggest Apple might be unpredictable on such things though, like with 7.6, 7.7, 8, 8.1, 8.6, 9, and such. But I think they won't really have a need anymore to round off to 11 for marketing purposes - the cats have been handling that just fine since Jag.
I really hope that the scrollbars get dealt with this time - we were all hoping that they would go all dark grey almost two years ago with Leopard though, so I'm not holding my breath.
Resize handles on all sides would be nice, but that was one of the things offered by brushed metal, which we finally killed with Leopard - ironic hmmm.
Not convinced at all on the new Stacks vis Ã* vis List mode browsing in the Dock as we had between 10.0 and 10.4.11, taking a short vacation for 10.5.0, and have had since 10.5.1. The only issue with that mode is that mouse navigation can get stuck if a particularly wide filename arises - still better than being able to see 10 characters of a name in grid view though IMO. Desktop browsing ≠ iPhone browsing in that regard.
Interesting also the dock exposÃ© menu - looks very much like the iPhone cut/paste menu, at least the one previewed a while back, weird. And as for the use of Dock exposÃ©, the example of dragging a pic into a Mail window is about the only thing I can think of, and one can already do that quite happily - maybe not with quite so many windows open though. And then there's always just browsing within Mail to find the file.
The new Apple keyboards have that F-key assigned to show all windows, and leave no room for a single key to show desktop, even though IMO that remains the most useful exposÃ© feature - still good to see they are tidying up the mini-window layout though.
It would be pretty cool to have an OS that goes to 11, but I think we'll see at least Cougar (although this one should really be older), Lynx and Lion before then - after that they get a bit less widely known - Ocelot? Those three take us to .9 so the decimal theory could be right after all
