Sneak preview of Tiger, aka OS X 10.4. Computer-wide search, dashboard widgets, task automation (woo!), smart folders (drool), and a new version of Safari with newsreading capabilities.

I’ve been hoping for smart folders for years. So cool.

What other cats do you think they’ll use? Tabby? Bobcat? Leopard? (Setting up a joke for someone else)

According to the Wikipedia entry on OS X, Cheetah, Puma, Jaguar, and Tiger have already been used and Apple has registered trademarks for Lynx, Cougar, and Leopard, which would bring them up to 10.7.

What? No “Lion?” That’s the king of the beasts man… but I suppose it doesn’t sound exotic enough.
“Simba” is swahili for lion (has several other meanings too, actually), but can’t go there I suppose.
