Jaguar is full of the little things that makes using Macs a pleasure. Oh, it feels as fast as 10.1 on a Ti 667 (not the new ones, the previous high end) on an old school blue 300MHz iBook with 384 megs of RAM. Just thought I'd share.</strong><hr></blockquote>

    The Font Smoothing Style option in Jag 6C73+ is great. Using my Mac with a CRT, OS X looked great but on the SGI flatpanel at home, the AA was just too blurry and no amount of messing with the contrast/brightness made any difference.

    Now all you have to do is just change the font-smoothing style and voilÃ* - fabulous looking screen display.

    I've tried running the M$ font-smoothing option in XP on a portable and it's rubbish. Way too blurry - makes you want to reach for your eye-glasses; not to mention the eye strain.

    6C75 is a vast improvement, even on the first release of Jaguar.

    Hey Ant,

    Don't think I have forgotten about e-mailing you that stuff. Work's been a bit crazy!

    Expect an e-mail when I get home around 9ish.

    Exactly. You might recall that one of the selling points in MacOS X originally was the ability to have single window mode (an idea I loved, by the way) and that never made it past third developer's preview.</strong><hr></blockquote>
