Snow Leopard Preview

I decided to give Snow Leopard gold master(10a432) a try on my fancy Macbook unibody. I had become accustomed to some of the particular quirks and performance of Leopard 10.5 on my hardware, and wanted to see what new features or performance I should be expecting for the next release of OS X. Booting up the install USB disk, I notice that the background is slightly changed. It’s still Leopard-esque, but slightly different.
