Who has it? I just finished installing it only to find that the text in Firefox is randomly a fancy-looking italicized font.

What? The right thing to do would be to use the little "i" and use KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB (calling them kibi-, mibi-, tibi-, etc.), while perhaps giving an option to express things in metric. However, using metric to measure amounts ofbinarycomputer data is silly. Hard drive manufacturers do it, but why should we cave to them?
... 256 color terminal support ...
... I don't understand how technically competent people get by on it ...
Well, vim is much nicer with 256 colours. Still, as far as I can tell, this can be fixed by getting a different terminal app for OSX, such as iTerm.

Agreed - The longer the Mac ads go on, the more insultingly retarded they treat the intended audience/people who use anything but a Mac. It's not intended to get new customers so much as it being Jobs-endorsed Fanboy wank-fodder.

So apparently, Snow Leopard doesn't automatically bootthe 64-bit kernel.Way to go Apple, way to go.
