They said that the Leopard Dev preview has a feature that enables you to put your mac to "sleep" so when you close windows and come back it restarts faster and comes back to where you were. Its called restart into windows. Supposedly you can do the same thing the other way too thru the bootcamp toolbar in windows.



Then when they asked the Leopard people from Apple about it they got all freaked out and said its not gonna be in the final build and had a guy go take the feature down from the website. WTF!!!!! This seems like a great feature. Why is apple screwing us over again. Leopard is starting to sound not so great.

    Yeah, I noticed that. Combine that with the disappearance of that remote desktop type thing in iChat theater, the thinness of things to show off at WWDC, and the general delay of Leopard, and it's worrisome.



    I mean, I welcome some of the stuff, and I'm sure there will be improvements under the hood and all, but dropping announced features isn't good.

    The dev seed does not have that feature. It was only mentioned at apple.com (but now removed).

    No? I wonder why they removed the references at Apple, then, or why Jobs didn't mention it in the keynote.



    Seems like a killer feature that Apple would want to talk up, no? Is the implementation still in flux, so they have to be circumspect about specific performance claims?

    Does something that you've already publicly discussed and described on your web page, then stopped, count as a "one more thing"? Is Steve going to use the amnesia gas again?

    What I mean is... why would Apple announce everything four months before release? I suspect they have the best saved for last, and that they're going to announce it at the same time they announce that Leopard is shipping, so that they can capitalize on "ZOMG <said feature> IS SO R0XX0RZ!!!1!!11", rather than let such feelings diminish before the shipping date.

    So why did they announce and demo it in January, then brag about in on their web page until a few days ago?

    I wish I could tell you. All I can say is that I wouldn't judge Leopard until it's installed on my machine, and I'd advise anyone else to do (or technically "not do") the same. All I've said is that it looks cool, from what I've seen. Remember that Steve previewed 10 of the 300 new features, so at this point, we're looking at the grand foyer through a crack in the back door.
