Mac OS X 10.3 “Panther” was released tonight.
I’ve been running Beta 7B85 of Panther (the version that became “gold master” and the retail release) for about a week and a half now. I’m very impressed – its very fast, overall. I’d say about 30-50% faster for some operations than 10.2 “Jaguar”. Machine here at home is a dual-867 G4 “Mirrored Drive Door” tower with GeForce 4MX video and 2G of RAM.
Gotta wait till next week (payday) to fork out the $129 for my official retail-release copy, though.
