I just wish Transmit had a folder watch like Yummy does. I keep my backup on my local machine synced with a remote ftp space. All I do is update my local files and Yummy handles the rest. Transmit's drop is similar but I still have to drag it over. Yeah... I'm that lazy...

I tested both extensively and Acorn won hands down. It was faster and the ability to script (and thus have others create filters and other features not included in the base application) is a bonus as well. I actually thought Pixelmator was a bit "toyish" and found it odd that you said this...

Hmm, I'd have to say it's the better OS + the controlled hardware that make Macs so nice. You can get a Windows machine that matches in specs for cheaper but nine times out of ten you will need special drivers, etc. if you ever plan to reinstall/upgrade your OS. You can use any flavor of Linux and a...

I've found that the new spotlight is so fast I haven't even bothered installing Quicksilver yet. It pulls up applications when you search almost as fast as QS and seems to remember the most frequently launched ala QS as well. Congrats on the new MacBook, Antony. I've had mine for a year and it is a ...

I came to Macs about a year ago and started with Tiger of course. leopard blows it out of the water in terms of looks, functionality, and speed on my MacBook.

The joys of beta testing, right? ;)

The View> "Layout" addition almost makes this beta worth dealing with though. I love that feature.

againdemon - I'd hold off on scripting until 1.1 is released or use the last beta. The script format bug makes it particularly painful if you try and copy and paste anything into your scripts. Your mileage may vary of course.

I think the problem is that Apple doesn't offer any kind of support for third-party developers to use Pages' proprietary file format in other programs.

Wow, that's insane that Logitech would base their driver on a haxie.

Antony - I miss the window shade feature available on nearly every unix window manager except OSX but have always been fearful of the APE. Now that I'm running Leopard I'm even more weary.

LL,
Thanks. Will use a copy of the project and keep the original somewhere safe... just in case.

Would it cause to many problems to downgrade to the last beta if I have used and saved projects from this beta? I need to work on some scripts and the bug in this beta makes this pretty near impossible. I know 1.1 is just around the corner but I kind of need to get this done in the next few days wit...

The interface is definitely an improvement. The Finder enhancements are also pretty nice. I generally use Path Finder but I really like the new Finder. Spaces is also nice. Finally OSX has a basic function that most Linux distros have had for years.
