I like how the Notification Center alerts slide up when closed; easier to dismiss them in sequence than Growl bubbles.

@rbrockerhoff Does that actually get you the marketing number somehow?

@peternlewis I suppose the plist format could change…

@rentzsch That’s how I remember how to spell your name. :)

Any idea why 10.8 got rid of all those useful system keyboard shortcuts in System Preferences (e.g. sleep the display)? Less discoverable.

@clarkcox The bug-fix defines such as NSAppKitVersionNumber10_7_2 are only available for certain versions.

@chockenberry Runtime version check generally only lets you check 10.7 vs 10.8, not 10.7.2 vs 10.7.3.

@chockenberry I think that says more about the nature of reality than Gestalt.

@chockenberry The fact that a method exists doesn’t mean that (a) it’s public in that version of the OS or (b) it works.

@chockenberry @siegel Posing is deprecated, so enjoy it while you can…

@jimcorreia @skid Also, sometimes we need to check not for features but for bugs that are known to occur in particular versions.

via Hibari in reply to jimcorreia

@skid Of course, but sometimes you actually want the OS version, e.g. when helping the customer contact tech support.

@peternlewis I suppose “sw_vers -productVersion” is a little better than parsing SystemVersion.plist but too bad about Gestalt.
