I've been on xp for a month now and I really miss some os x stuff. Especially exposé. And to think, when I first encountered that feature I thought it was so much fluff; just a gimmick for the punters. Even though I have a fantastic set up at work (thanks work!) with two 20 inch widescreen monitors, I still find myself hunting for windows. Oh, why can't I just push a button and see all of them?
So the other day, when I was chatting with some coworkers one of them mentioned you can put 4GB of ram in a plain (13") macbook these days. This was the last little bit that pushed me over the edge. I looked around and you can get 2 2GB cards for about the price that apple will sell you a 1 GB card (or about 1/3 of the $500 they want for 4GB).
People have already been criticizing leopard features. The new dock, for instance, is even worse than the old one. But you can get rid of the stupid pseudo 3d with ease, and Quicksilver is around, so who cares about the dock anyway. I'm really looking forward to spaces (virtual desktops, woo hoo!). And by the time it gets here, all the other 3rd party stuff I rely on will be leoparded.
So now I just have to wait for the shipping notice...
