4 May 2000 Gimptek   » (Journeyer)

Finally!!! I have something to contibute. I have some ideas for Gimp 2.0 (We're not going to see that one for a long time) and I need to learn how to use CVS, get access and make the changes. I'm using XEmacs on Win2000 (From school because Home computer is dead right now). I'll pick up some documentation for it. If anyone can point me to some useful documentation for CVS though XEmacs then I would be really greatful. My address is gimptek@yahoo.com
I don't know how they swinged it but, somehow a local computer store got an alpha copy of Mac OS X. Damn that is sweet. On a G4 450 no less. Everything is butter from the drop shadows down to the translucency of the dialog boxes.

The new OS even has a Unix style directory structure. It's going to rock. The only thing I dislike about it is that the little icons at the bottom grow when the mouse is over them. (A cool little effect) but, it doesn't do it smoothly. You see jaggies as it grows. One could do a cubic transform and smooth everything out but, that would be slow even for a G4.

The new look also makes everything alot slower than OS 8. It's not slow but, you can see a slight jerkyness when you drag a window. It has to move the drop shadow after all....
