Some features not really covered in the keynote.
Authored by: scum on Jul 02, '03 12:52:49PM

I've been using 10.3b for a few days now as my default OS. Some things that The Steveness didn't cover (as far as I can tell):
Speed- this thing is faster. I believe most of the speed comes from optimization in Quartz Extreme.
Infinte Contextual Menus: You can put your hard drive in the dock and go down an infinite number of levels- previously ony could go down 3-4 levels.
Expose: This Steve did cover- but I don't think you can really appriciate how awesome it is till you try it. Something I would like is an additional feature that would keep background windows dimmed so the front application windows stand out more.
Network Browser: Totally revamped, faster, and cooler.
NTFS support: Absolutely nessesary for some people out there.
Faster Rendering of Brushed Metal: Makes those iApps a bit snappier.

Again- balance out the cost vs. benefits. It's a nice OS in pre-release form and I'm looking forward installing the final release.
