Screenshots of Mac OS X Leopard 10.5 9A499 Surface
Jul 30, 2007 - 21 Comments
Mac rumor site ThinkSecret has some screenshots of the latest Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard build.
The interface is becoming increasingly polished, with a mirrored reflective Dock, a transparent menu bar, and rounded corners on many pop-up menu items.
Many Mac users expect a major GUI revision in 10.5, but thus far there have only been slight changes and refinements, keeping a very familiar (although updated) look.
On second thought, don’t come back. It’s become part of my routine to check periodically to see if the posted comments counter has ticked up. It usually takes a week or so for each new comment.
Sheesh. At least if this had ended gracefully, there would be a screen explaining what’s happening, or a 404 error or something. But now we know that this site is sitting on a drive in some nameless server somewhere… forgotten… alone.
just gone, huh.
This is sad….
come back, please come back! PLEASE!
Everyday I cry when I see “Screenshots of Mac….” still up.
please come back!
What’s up?! I love osxdaily! Don’t do this to me!
What gives, OSXDaily? I loved this site so much!
Please come back!
This was one of my favorite sites, what happened guys? Looks like the sponsors pulled out too. What a shame…
Are you taking donations? I’d love to help keep the site up and running as I’m sure others would too.
status of this site?
this website was amazing. need to keep it running. learned many things from this site!
All of your readers want you back!
30 days now, almost a month since the last post. Please come back!!
I agree, this was really a great site. Let us know what we can do to make it active again.
PEOPLE!!!!!!!. c’mon this was a GREAT WEBSITE, get it running again please! Do you guys need help? Add a help wanted section and maybe we can all pitch in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes, is there anybody home here?
I’ve been checking back here periodically for nearly a month. Do the webmasters behind this site ever update it? Ever?
Okay, I’ll just say it: change the name to osxmonthly.com.
Where are the ‘daily’ OS X posts?
Why are “many Mac users” expecting a “major GUI revision”? Is there something lacking in the old GUI? I’m a recent switcher and I’m ecstatically happy with my Mac Pro. Under Windows, I did not know how good computing could be! I have found the Tiger GUI to be excellent. It is practical, yet elegant- it is art! Windows is…a bunch of ugly colored boxes, by comparison. But, aside from the GUI, the OS is simply grand! I didn’t know you could install and remove apps so easily- and *without* restarting the bloody computer EVERY TIME. I can work as programs load or update. Using a Mac has been a dream come true.
I think most people who think the UI changes embody Leopard are missing the point. As always, it’s the core architecture that is changing, which helps devs make great apps for the platform. That’s the bigger picture. The UI stuff is admittedly important for gaining new customers.
thoroughly disappointed in leopard, i don’t even care
reflective dock, wow that’s great apple
