As you may have heard, Microsoft “officially” released its new operating system, Windows Vista, today. Of course, in true “Windoze” fashion, most users won’t be able to get Vista until January of 2007, but I digress…
Unless you have been living under a rock, you are no doubt aware that Apple has been fine tuning its OS X Leopard, which is slated for a Spring 2007 release. The ABA General Practice, Solo & Small Firm Division’s Techhology eReport for November 2006 contained a good preview of Leopard. You can read Jeffrey Allen’s article by clicking HERE.
Already announced features of Leopard include:
- Boot Camp :: gives you the ability to boot your Mac so that it will run Windows
- Time Machine :: incorporates backup capabilities into the operating system and gives you the ability to go back in time to see information as of a given date
- Spaces :: enables you to work from multiple desktops on your Mac
- Spotlight :: will incorporate the ability to search other computers on your network
Again, you can visit Apple’s Leopard Sneak Peek for much more information about all of its features and functions.
