    :bowdown: just about sums it up. I have never been more impressed with apple in the 10 years i have been using their products. I hope they continue to set trends and keep making quality products.

    the only thing im having a hard time figuring out is why im not getting the splash/ripple effects when adding a new widget to my dashboard.

    other than that, iChatAV, spotlight, quicktime 7, safari RSS, and the dashboard made this a 70$ well spent.

    It's the shit. Ordered my copy from Amazon, got a rebate and it came a day early. Safari 2.0 is so fast I've stopped using Firefox. Dashboard is amazingly useful, Spotlight rocks, Mail is much better with cool new features. Easily worth every penny.

    I don't think it does it on "older" video cards -- cuz it doesnt do it on my GF's iBook G3 800MHz, but does on my PowerBook G4 1.5GHz w/ the Go5200 video card..

    I think it may have something to do with what hardware you're running, video card wise?

    yeah, your video card has to support core image to see all the cool stuff.

    what kind of video card do you have in your book

    Mail 2.0 is pretty amazing.. I like the interface change alot! Mail 1.0 seemed to "kiddy-like" for me..

    Is the difference that big?

    I've been using Entourage (2004) never even considered looking at Mail. What do you think makes it better?

    there isn't any real difference between the two. entourage has more features (i.e. schedules, built-in news reader) that mail doesn't, but also is a little bloated (i.e. calendar, non-system address book, etc) and costs money....but otherwise when it comes to core features, they're pretty similar. i used to use entourage and i now use mail, but there i can't say i have any great reason to.

    to me the interface makes all the difference in the world. like agent0068 said, entourage is really bloated and has a lot of shit you dont really need or care to look at when checking email.

    aside from the interface, mail 2.0 also allows me to manage 3 accounts way easier than entourage did.

    its one of those situations where less is more, ya feel me.

    My office is switching everyone to Exchange from Notes soon (finally) and I was looking for alternatives to Entourage just to see what was out there for OS X and ran across these add-ons ( http://www.snerdware.com/ )that look really promising that allow you to use iCal and Address Book with Exchange Server for all your appointments & meetings, etc.

    In case ou guys want to know, theres a way to ahve dashboard stuff appear on the desktop while not in dashboard mode. type this in the terminal :
    this enables developer mode (does nothing as far as I can see, cept whats next). after enter that in the terminal, hit enter, and logout/in, whip out the dashboard. Start dragging a widget, and before letting go, hit f12 and put it wherever you want on the desktop.

    I've just made one corner a hot corner for dashboard. It's the easiest way to bring up widgets.

    From my supporting of Entourage at my work, Entourage is only used because management wanted a Microsoft-brand Exchange client, plus we needed shared Exchange calendar support.

    We're sunk unless MS decides to pull their heads out of their ass and actually make things like Public Folders and Shared Folders work worth a shit. :weak:
