Years after years, VLC still kicks major ass.

QuickTime, MplayerX, Mplayer OSX Extended, Perian, Movist, they have all come a long way and make great progress. They're all great software.

But VLC is still king of the hill.

Now if only we could have a really stable build once.. ;)

Wasn't this update supposed to improve graphics performance, or at least fix the regression created by 10.6.3 ?

Can someone provide feedback on this? Have you seen improvements?

The new "2010 process" RAW engine is much much better than Lightroom 2's RAW engine, or Aperture 3 for that matter.

The new luma noise filter is also very very good. It's not magical, but used with the existing color noise filter you can save a lot of photos.

All in all, it makes it much more possible to use high ISO than before.

Keep in mind everyone that NTFS write support in Snow Leopard is unsupported and there is no evidence that it's reliable.

You're probably better off with MacFuse+NTFS-3G or Paragon NTFS, both of which are tested, reliable. Also Paragon NTFS has good performance I hear.

When the keyboard on my MBP stopped working, i bought a spare one on ebay.

The problem was, my original keyboard was french (azerty), and the new one was english (qwerty).

So, i switched the plastic keys to mimic a french keyboard. And then I created a custom layout with Ukelele to sort everything out.

Thanks Ukelele!

Hi all,

How does this compare to BetterTouchTool ?

Which are the pros and cons of each?

FLAC2Mac could bring something new and compelling in the future.

But in the mean time, use Max/XLD/xACT. More features, more mature code, good performance.

LaTeXiT looks lovely but it requires installing LaTeX. The problem is, the MacTeX distrib is a big whooping 1.2GB install (see: ).

Apple's Grapher meets most of my needs but I'd be interested in trying LaTeX. Anyone can explain me why LaTeX needs that much memory, and if there is an alternative distrib with a smaller footprint?

Well yeah sure, I kinda knew all that, though I guess I should have made it clear.

Don't you know if there are TeX packages with a smaller footprint?

Also, it just can't be 1.2GB of pure code, is it? Even fonts don't take that much memory..

Thanks! I'll give it a try..

I'm having wicked bugs and performance hit running this with ntfs-3G. Very, very weird..

Toast hangs while ntfs-3g CPU usage skyrockets.

Unmounting ntfs drives seems to solve the issue, still a bummer.

Anyone had a similar experience?
