I want to give a shout-out to Apple Insider for a stellar series of “Road to Mac OS X Leopard” articles detailing changes coming in the any-day-now update. They offer a layer of depth and context well beyond what you can find on the official Leopard site.
Not content with a bulleted list of UI tweaks and bug fixes, AI has been providing history lessons on each application and technology, with nostalgia-producing screenshots and reminders of just how far we’ve come.
The latest post was today’s “Road to Mac OS X Leopard: Mail 3.0” which includes some hints at just how close Apple came to biting the dust thanks to mismanagement in the 80s while it traces the history of email apps on Mac, then wraps up with details on the new version of Mail.
Others in the “Road to…” series:
Thanks much to Apple Insider for going beyond the call of duty.
