MacNN have a nice list (http://www.macnn.com/articles/06/08/10/more.leopard.features/) of features in Leopard that have sprung from an unlikely source: a blog for Windows Vista developers (http://www.aeroxp.org/board/index.php?showtopic=5142&hl=)... but they're not copying Apple. Nooooo :unsure:

My personal favourite is the system-wide grammar check. That should be a boon for my own writing and also hopefully make some forums a lot easier to read :P

I wonder what the true secrets are, maybe some form of virtualisation engine?

I'm just hanging out to get my hands on a developer copy...should be very interesting as the core inbuilt stuff should be in there. Since they didn't mention it at WWDC doesn't mean it won't be there...just that people won't know exactly what to look for. More food for speculation.

well, the main thing apple&#39;s hiding can&#39;t be virtualisation, because then they wouldn&#39;t hide it, becuase microsoft can&#39;t really copy it that quickly, for, example, they can&#39;t build into vesta a virtualisation engine that runs Mac OS X, becuase OSX&#39;s been saved from PC hardware and stuff, so, in my mind that&#39;s sorta out of the question, but, if anybody can correct me on this issue, please do, becuase I want this feature in leopard ASAP&#33;

If you&#39;d like to see some more leopard stuff, here&#39;s some screen shots a developer took from the pre-release version they got:
