Apple Previews Next Version of Mac OS X
New Version 10.1 Features Blazing Speed and Aqua Enhancements

MACWORLD EXPO, NEW YORK-July 18, 2001-At the Macworld Expo Keynote, Apple
today previewed Mac OS X version 10.1, the first major upgrade to Apple's
new UNIX-based operating system. Mac OS X v10.1 will deliver significant
performance improvements, new features and additional refinements to the
Aqua interface. Mac OS X v10.1 will be available this September and will
be supported by more than 1,000 third-party native applications.

""""""""This new version of Mac OS X is really fast, and incorporates many
suggestions from our users, such as the moveable Dock that can be placed on
the left, bottom or right edge of the screen,"""""""" said Steve Jobs, Apple's
CEO. """"""""We've fixed a lot of bugs, and added a lot of great new features,
like burning CDs right from the Finder and the ability to seamlessly
network with Windows clients and servers.""""""""

Mac OS X v10.1 delivers improved performance, with dramatically faster
application launch times, blindingly fast menus and window resizing, faster
logins and a more responsive feel overall. In addition, Mac OS X v10.1
features an enhanced Aqua interface, with a moveable Dock, which can be
placed on the right, bottom or left edge of the screen; Dock menus that
enable running applications to present a menu from their Dock icon
providing fast access to commonly performed functions; and new menu items
for frequently used system controls like battery, AirPort, monitors and
sound.

Mac OS X v10.1 is the ultimate digital hub, with the ability to create a
music library and burn music CDs with iTunes, burn data CDs from the
Finder, make movies with iMovie 2, watch DVDs with the DVD Player and
create DVDs with iDVD.

Macworld attendees also had the opportunity to see their favorite
applications and third-party peripherals work natively with Mac OS X v10.1.
Top developers including Microsoft, Adobe, Quark, FileMaker, IBM,
Alias|Wavefront, Aspyr, Blizzard, Connectix and WorldBook showed their
support by demonstrating new applications running on Mac OS X.

Throughout the operating system, Apple has ensured that Mac OS X v10.1
fully leverages its UNIX-based design, significantly increases performance
and provides new features including:

* dramatically enhanced system performance, especially application launch
time and window resizing;
* fine tuning of the Aqua interface for a more customizable experience that
includes the ability to position the Dock on the left, the right or at the
bottom of the screen;
* data CD burning capabilities within the Finder and DVD video playback and
authoring capabilities to support iDVD, making Mac OS X the ultimate engine
for the digital hub;
* broadened support for hundreds of third-party peripherals such as
printers, cameras, camcorders, MP3 players, rewriteable drives and storage
devices;
* unprecedented network integration with Mac, Windows, Linux and UNIX
environments through AFP/AppleTalk, SMB/CIFS, WebDAV and NFS file services
running on Mac OS X Server, AppleShare, UNIX, Linux, Windows NT and
Windows 2000 servers;
* greatly enhanced 3D graphics performance with updated OpenGL software and
full support for NVIDIA GeForce3;
* a more powerful and efficient iDisk leveraging the Internet standard
WebDAV protocol to allow users to stay connected to their iDisk, even
behind corporate firewalls;
* substantial improvements to AppleScript throughout the system and full
support for Internet scripting using SOAP and XML; and
* the final version of Internet Explorer 5.1 with full support for Mac OS
X's Java 2 runtime.
