aXUL writes: AppleInsider is printing a new series on the arrival of Mac OS X Leopard, with extensive historical stories behind some of the "300 new features." Articles give examples of other systems that delivered similar features, or acted as ancestors in an illustrated genealogy of tech history that features Apple, NeXT, BSD, Windows, Be, the Amiga, and DOS. Previous articles have covered Finder 10.5, Dock 1.6, Spaces, Time Machine, Mail 3.0, iChat 4.0, iCal 3.0, Safari 3.0, Dashboard, Spotlight and the Desktop, and most recently, an extensive history of Unix servers, and an article today covering directory services, parental controls, and managed preferences/group policy. Required reading for nostalgic nerds!
