Jobs Keynote: Mac OS X 10.1 Available

New from Macworld New York By Dave Nagel
At the Macworld Expo in New York this morning, Steve Jobs delivered his keynote address. The first thing he announced was Mac OS X version 10.1, what he called "the first major update to OS X." The new update focuses on performance: faster menus, faster window resizing, faster application launches and faster launches.

It also offers new features, such as an improved interface, DVD playback, CD burning, "dramatically enhanced" support for digital devices and better printing support. According to Jobs, the new release includes "thousands" of improvements.

Also during the Jobs keynote, several representatives from third-party vendors got up to speak. Among them, Alias|Wavefront, Connectix Corp., Filemaker, Quark and Adobe. Alias|Wavefront said it is now taking orders for Maya for OS X. Connectix announced a download version of Virtual PC for OS X. The new version is free for registered users of VPC 4.0. Adobe and Quark reiterated their support for OS X and showed off the latest builds of their software for OS X, nothing that hasn't been shown before. Filemaker announced a new server version of Filemaker Pro for OS X.
