I Am Skooter
So here's us, on the raggedy edge.

Integrated RSS in Safari is pretty slick. It makes RSS feeds much more useful, and much different in my view.

I’m a bit disappointed in Dashboard, which is pokey and not yet finished, it seem. I can’t use the Stickies app which, as it seems to have difficulty entering text. I also find the iTune widget too slow to respond, and if I need to have the application open anyway why would I bother? Perhaps this will improve. There are obvious network issues in Widgets that pull information from the web.

I haven’t even begun to explore Automator, but it’s a powerful tool. Like most such things, it will be come much more so as more apps become enabled.

Spotlight is a very slick operating system wide implementation of an old technology. Apple’s first truly useful desktop search, although there have been windows examples in the past that have worked well.

So my two cents is that I like it, but not as much as I really wanted too.
