10.5: Watch and listen to the 10.5 intro movie System 10.5
Did you enjoy the Leopard intro video that played after your install completed? You can find the source audio and video buried in the Finder:

Navigate to /System » Library » CoreServices » Setup Assistant. Control-click on Setup Assistant and select Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu, then navigate into Contents » Resources. Play the Control-click game again on TransitionSection.bundle, then navigate into Contents » Resources. Whew. As a shortcut, just copy the following text (triple-click to select it all), bring up the Go » Go to Folder box, and paste:

/System/Library/CoreServices/Setup Assistant.app/Contents/Resources/TransitionSection.bundle/Contents/Resources/

Here you'll find intro.mov, which contains the video, and intro-sound.mp3, which holds the audio. Enjoy!

[robg adds: The audio is separate from the movie because it's longer -- 55 seconds vs. 34 seconds. Can anyone identify the band? The version that leaked to the net earlier this year had 10.4's audio, but the final release has a new tune that isn't one in my collection!]

Thanks! I was sleeping when it played, and I was wondering what I missed.

I've excerpted a 15-second snippet on my blog (search on my username to find it) for use as an iPhone ringtone.

I uploaded a version that combines video and audio, put together in QuickTime.

Turn QuickTime or Quick Look to fullscreen and pretend just having installed Leopard ;-).

Here's the link.

I used iMovie to combine the .mov and .mp3 into a quicktime movie (did the same when I installed Tiger last year)
