Cupertino, start your copiers!

by Brandon on February 11th, 2007

Ryan Faas has an article up highlighting the upgraded Spotlight feature of Apple’s upcoming “Leopard” 10.5 release of OS X.  It’s got some really cool stuff coming, including:

  • Searching remote Leopard clients and server shares
  • Full support for file permissions and ACLs
  • Expanded “Recent Items” functionality
  • Advanced search with a much more robust query syntax
  • Use Spotlight as an application launcher (a sort of “Start Menu” if you will)
  • Preview results and files without opening them

Those are all really great features!  I just can’t put my finger on it, but for some reason I feel like I’ve seen them before.

  2. Hey Brandon, I have to agree; despite these being great features, I also believe I have seen them before 🙂

    PS: Nice blog; didn’t know you had it, I’ll be sure to check in here often.

    Windows, mouse, icons – I can’t put my finger on it but I’ve seen those somewhere before too.
    Steve stole it from Xerox, Bill stole it from Steve. What else is new.

    Regarding uninstalling WDS: We have users that frequently search for numerical data in an excel file (asset numbers, budget numbers). Before installing WDS, we could right click on a folder, select search, enter in a number in the ‘search for text in file’ and have the resulting spreadsheets returned. After installing WDS this didn’t work. Then, we uninstalled WDS and it *still* doesn’t work. We really need this functionality back, can you help?
