Happy Thanksgiving! Site News
Macosxhints will be closed today and tomorrow for the Thanksgiving holiday (and Black Friday shopping extravaganza). For those in the US, I hope you have a safe and enjoyable holiday. The hints will return as usual on Monday

In the interim, I invite you to ponder OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard's actual "for sale" date. Apple stated last June that it was going to ship within "about a year," but exactly when will that be? Take your best guess in our latest poll. Personally, I voted for March, due mainly to it being the release month for the original OS X 10.0, but I've heard rumors of everything from January to July. What do you think? Will it Snow early next year, or will it be a summer Snow?

This "Feature" in 10.5 makes is so tedious to edit 'events' drives me buggy - why would anybody make it harder to edit an event in a new version than it was in the old?

Editing a 'note' one must dbl-click the event, click 'edit', click 'note' then re-click an insertion point. AAAARGH! I find this is a convenient place to keep a daily log of some numbers (maybe there's a more appropriate tool for this?), but this terribly clumsy editing tool makes it quite painful.

Floating 'events.' Earlier versions of Palm's calendar (or 'todo'?) had floating events that would float to the current day - AWFULLY NICE!

This should get fixed in Snow Leopard, released around June 2009.

The main problem (to me) is that it WAS "fixed" in Tiger's iCal. Then they crippled iCal's editiing abilities and removed the super-convenient event icons (recurring, has-notes, etc.) and Leopard iCal was born.

Hope they bring the icons back as well as better editing...

Yes, go buy the 10.5 Leopard DVD, install it, then use Software Update to update it to 10.5.5.
