“Apple next-generation Snow Leopard operating system will introduce a massive re-write of the Mac OS X Finder and debut a new feature called ImageBoot,” Kasper Jade reports for AppleInsider.
“People familiar with matter say the Finder, which currently stands as one of the oldest Carbon-based applications in the Mac OS portfolio, has been completely re-written in the company’s native object-oriented application program environment called Cocoa,” Jade reports.
“When it makes its debut next spring, Snow Leopard will also introduce a third option for disc image-based installation called ImageBoot,” Jade reports. “Based on Apple’s local NetBoot technology, the method will let users boot a Mac simply by placing and launching a disc image on any storage partition outside of the primary partition for which they wish to install copies of Mac OS X.”
