Mac OS 9.2 Slides Onto New Power Mac G4s -- With nary a mention in Steve Jobs's Macworld Expo keynote address, Apple last week began shipping computers with Mac OS 9.2 installed. The new version of the operating system is reportedly a minor enough upgrade that it could have been called "9.1.1" if not for the likelihood it would prompt jokes about "911" (an emergency phone number in most of the U.S.). Although Apple has provided no release notes about what changed in Mac OS 9.2, reports indicate that it contains some bug fixes, support for the latest Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver) machines, and improvements that will be required for use with Mac OS X 10.1, slated for release in September 2001. It's a moot point for most people right now, since Mac OS 9.2 is currently available only with the new Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver). [MHA]
Using Expose within Spaces
To drag a file into an application that's running in another one of your Spaces, use Expose while in Spaces overview mode. First, press F8 to go into Spaces overview mode, then press F9 to Expose all application windows. Hover over the application window you want and wait a moment or press the Space bar, and both that space and that application come to the foreground, ready for you to drop the file.
