Leopard Features With MS Windows Comparatives
64-bit Application Support
Mac Pro systems, Leopard will be fully 64-bit enabled ( Tiger is
only partially 64-bit and and only on certain Power PC systems).This
equates to Windows XP x64 Edition capabilty: Run 32-bit and 64-bit
applications natively, side-by-side.
Time Machine automatically backs up everything on your system
and restore earlier versions of files at any time. Works just as
Windows Server 2003 Volume Shadow Copy and the client-side service
in Windows Vista works.
The Complete Package
Apple is integrating applications like Boot Camp, Photo Booth,
and Front Row into Leopard. Previously, these applications were
only available with new Macs, or in the case of Boot Camp, as a
free public beta download. Sorry, but this is hardly impressive.
Spaces lets you utilize multiple desktops, each of which can contain
its own set of applications. The earliest versions of multiple desktops
were Linux versions, Microsoft then implemented it in NT-based versions
of Windowsand eventually shipped a free version, called Virtual
Apple's version of Windows Search will now search other Mac clients
and workgroup servers. Microsoft plan to release this functionality
in Microsoft Windows Vista SP1 and Longhorn Server in late 2007.
Spotlight will also support advanced search features, like better
search syntax, just like Windows Search. It will also be able to
launch applications and find recent items.
A powered up sidebar groups into categories: places, devices, shared
computers, and searches making it easier to find what you need.
Using Cover Flow in the Finder, you can flip through your files.
Cover Flow displays each file as a large preview of its first page.
And you can page through multipage documents or play movies.
Core Animation is a low-level graphics technology aimed at developers,
introducing a new generation of graphically animated application.
Core Animation will not directly benefit end users in Leopard
until developers take advantage of it.
Apple is adding functionality for those with disabilities: Braille
support, positional audio cues, and extended keyboard capability,
in addition to closed captioning. The voice is pretty much like
Vista's voice synthesis.
Apple's Mail application (often called Mail.app in reference to
its beginnings on the NeXT platform) is being updated with some
truly lame features: Stationary, notes, to-do notes, and RSS.
These aren't major features, and they're certainly not worthy
of the time Jobs gave them during the keynote. Outlook Express users
have been clogging the Internet with Stationary-based HTML email
for a decade, and it's as unwelcome now as ever.
Dashcode and Dashboard Improvements
Dashcode lets developers build Dashboard widgets with templates,
debugging tools, a visual editor for CSS, and other tools. To sync
Dashboard widget preferences to two or more Macs, users must subscribe
to a $69.99 a year Mac service. Yeah right!
Leopard will include an enhanced version of iChat that includes
multiple-logon support, invisibility, animated buddy icons, video
chat recording, and tabbed chats. Pity they didn't think more about
chat on iPhone instead!
