Apple's marketing division is getting ready to take on Microsoft's Windows Vista, PC Mag reports.
Still unknown are the "top secret" unannounced features that the Mac maker plans to deliver with Leopard. When first demonstrating Mac OS X 10.5 to third-party developers and the public alike at its Worldwide Developers Conference in August 2006, CEO Steve Jobs announced that Apple was working on several other major new features, but that the company would keep those under wraps to prevent the competition from emulating them ahead of Leopard's release.
Apple last seeded a new build of Mac OS X 10.5 to third-party developers in mid-January. That build, labeled 9A343, contained only marginal new features that had not been seen in previous builds, such as five new screensavers that take advantage of Apple's new Core Animation technology and improvements to the Terminal application, including support for tabbed windows.
