Get OS X Leopard NOW!!!

tigerOkay so I lied to get you to read this post….but let’s check out some of the features in Leopard that you can have TODAY (P.S. I am accepting links to bittorent versions of Leopard).

SuperDuper! ($27.95), Lifeboat ($30), iBackup (donation) or Carbon Copy Cloner (donation)

iChat:

Tiffany Screens (free), XMeeting videoconferencing (free), Adium (free and my favorite)

Spotlight:

HoudahSpot ($14.95) and Meta — complex queries;

Searchlight — Spotlight for networks ($29.90);

Quicksilver (free), Launchbar ($19.95 – $29.95) and Butler (donation) — for application launching

iCal:

Gcal (free) + Google Calendar (free…I have this open 24/7)
