As summer stretches on I’ve increasingly found that there’s just no way I’ll cope with using my PC as a full-time machine again. The Mac experience is just too beautiful and working on my iBook is dancing through poppy fields compared to wading through Windows treacle.
So, Apple have previewed Mac OSX Leopard. I can’t say I was blown away by the WWDC keynote, but everything there was interesting enough: The implementation of virtual desktop is gorgeous, iChat 4 looks very cool (although I continue to dislike the chat bubbles) and Time Machine might just bring backups to all (if Apple start shipping redundant hard discs as standard… which they might, I suppose). OK, so the new Mail.app templates are shite, looking like a car crash between iWeb and Outlook Express (and not of the chocolate and peanut butter kind). In fact, that seemed remarkably consumer-centric for a developers conference but otherwise all is good.
I’m awful at drawing attention to milestones on my blog. I don’t see an awful lot of importance or relevance in doing so, but would anyway if I were to remember. I missed the first blog anniversary, and the second too (July 21st) but pretty much by accident, I spotted the post count in Wordpress sitting at 199.
