Even hardened Macheads are starting to say that the Mac's new operating system, Leopard, could be mostly eye candy.
Beta copies of the operating system are now being tested by the faithful but they are starting to say that while things like the inbuilt mail and calendar programs sport some welcome improvements and all the bundled programs finally look and work the same way. The rest is all frills rather than new features.
Matthew Powell, editor of Australian Macworld magazine told the Sydney Morning Herald that much of what's been shown so far in Leopard is just eye candy.
He said that the most important thing that is new is Time Machine as "probably the single most important feature of Leopard". Which is backup software.
Useful, but not exactly the most important thing an operating system needs.
