It "feels" better. Although the fontsets setup is more complicated  
this Emacs makes less faults in displaying extended Latin, maths,  
other symbols. I also feel that I reach faster my aim. I can double- 
click a frame's title and it minimises to just this title bar. Carbon  
Emacs wastes minutes (can it be they're only seconds?) before getting  
swallowed by the Dock. And again when getting ejected.

It's also a good example how well the integration of X11 and Aqua works.



What’s the difference between OS X and Vista?

Microsoft employees are excited about OS X…
