Netscape 7.0 is Released!

Netscape 7.0 Icon I found on this evening that Netscape 7.0 has been released [ download ]. My first impression on Jaguar? It sucks, it won't even start! Oh well - it's got a cool new icon, looks like fun - but being based on Mozilla 1.0.1, I doubt it has anything I haven't seen before.

Transparent Dock Fixed!

OK, I got the transparent dock feature to work using ClearDock 1.1. How you ask? I rebooted.

My Review of Jaguar.

I'll probably be the first one to express disappoitment in the latest Mac OS X version. I received it in the mail yesterday and upgraded from 10.1.5 to 10.2 last night. The install was cake, and much smoother than any windows install/upgrade I've ever done, and definitely easier than Linux. However, I ran into a couple issues after I had everything installed.

  • I had to hack my system to get Dave uninstalled (I'd give you the link, but is down). 10.2 comes with Rendezvous now, so I don't need Dave anymore. After 10 minutes, I gave up on trying to figure out how to share my home directory - sounds nice, but I like Window's (XP) right-click on a folder -> Sharing and Security... feature.
  • Eclipse 2.0 doesn't work, all the panels are jumbled and it looks like it got run over by a truck.
  • I don't use Mail, I use Entourage - so I don't care about all the new features in Mail. Same goes for iChat - I use Yahoo and M$N Messengers.
  • On 10.1.5, I could use a Courier New font in my Terminal window, and everything was smooth and sexy. Courier New on 10.2's Terminal window is boxy and blech.
  • I tried TransparentDock (don't know where I got it from) and ClearDock 1.1 and neither of them worked to make my dock transparent. I was really looking forward to this enhancement.

I spent about an hour total trying to get the above problems solved - except for the Eclipse one, I just said, "yikes!" and left that one alone. All in all, I'm sure if I'd done a clean install vs. an upgrade, all of the above would not be an issue. I know I would never do an upgrade on a Windows machine, always a clean install. So I'm happy with the upgrade, just hoping for too much probably. I expected a lot more from the rave reviews it's been getting, but again, since I use it about 8 minutes per day - I probably wouldn't notice any sexy new features anyway.

In other Apple news, I had to boot into OS 9 at one point last night when hacking Dave - and WHOA - that OS screams! No wonder folks are having a hard time migrating to OS X. It's so fast and snappy that I almost "switched" to using OS 9 as my primary OS!
