The Good, Bad & Ugly of Mac OS X 10.5 - by James Reynolds
Mac OS X 10.5 introduces some changes for administrators, some good, some for the good of someone else.  James discussed what we have found so far, such as the deprecation of /etc/rc.local, the 10.5 way to get a screensaver over the loginwindow (significantly different than 10.4), non-universal OS updaters from Software Update, NetInfo's demise, the new kind of "Firewall", etc.
