Here's the things that have increase my productivity:<br><br>XCode 2 (it's sooo much faster and doesn't crash as much)<br>Smart Folders (both in the finder and in mail)<br>Burn Folders (doesn't take forever or lots of space to burn a dvd from the finder)<br>Better SMB support (wow, it remembers passwords)<br>Dictionary (i'm surprised how often I use this... cmd-cntrl d)<br>XCode 2 (so much better it deserves a second mention. i actually use it now)<br>J2SE 5.0 (though you have to d/l it separately)<br>Build-in Slideshow (sooo much faster than iPhoto)<br>Spotlight (with php mdimporter)<br>Finder updating right away (though it still sucks connecting to some shares)<br>build in sqlite 3 (though, I could have compiled and installed it myself)<br>CoreData (very sweet)<br><br><br><br>
