Our monkeys at WWDC have just reported back a series of cool features in Apples OSX Leopard, which is slated for release in October.
Without further ado, here’s the list in no specific order:
Home, Premium, Ultimate and Enterprise versions are all $129 (a joke regarding versions of Vista)

Network view, browse files on networked Macs
Quicklook: preview any document, live file preview
Leopard is fully 64-bit
Boot camp built in — Runs XP and Vista at native speed, includes all Windows drivers

Core animation — New animated interface, animated backgrounds, etc.
