Good kitty.

The Mac I use at the agency where I freelance just got upgraded from Jaguar to Panther. I like it immediately. A smoother interface. Subtle differences really, that have a significant impact on my work experience. Fonts are crispier, something I appreciate more as I age. I have noticed that small fonts on web sites are more difficult to read than I remember. A good reason for web designers to specify fonts with browser-resizable ems, rather than absolute pixels.

I am waiting for Apple to come out with an OS designated “Fluffy Persian Kitty”.

  1. Ooo! Ooo! Hit F9! Hit F9!!! Then F11! :)

    Panther is so much faster than Jag.

    Next version - Black Tabby

  2. Yeah, I already set up my corners to hide all/show all. That is about one of the most freakin' useful things about Panther. I think it's even better than alt+tab cycling thru windows on PC.
