WWDC 2006: Steve Jobs Introduces Leopard (OS X 10.5) – Part 2 of 3
At the Apple 2006 World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple CEO Steve Jobs went over the new features of “[tagLeopard”, the next evolution of the OS X operating system for the Macintosh.
1. Full native support for 64-bit apps – 64-bit UNIX 64-bit Carbon and Cocoa, while still supporting current 32 bit applications and drivers in OS X.
2. Time Machine, automatic backup, and restoration for the Mac. Jobs says the feature has, “â€¦ a whole new way of backing up your filesâ€¦”. It goes back in time to restore anything to the present, with a very Star Trek- like interface showing past versions of your computer desktop going off into space, through a moving star field.
3. A suite of programs including an improved Boot Camp, for running Windows natively on Intel-based Macs, Front Row for management of digital content, Photo Booth, and new iChat features for enhanced video conferencing possibilities.
4. Spaces for project management on your Mac: a multitasking tool that create spaces with collections of applications and switches between them instantly.
5. Spotlight: introduced in Tiger, enables instant search on your Mac or connected machines in a network.
