Preview lots of stuff.

Ok, here's the last OSX related post for the week. I don't know if this is a Jaguar thing, but file previews are pretty robust in Column View. To the right is the preview for an MP3, and it doesn't just play the first 5 seconds, it plays the whole track, or you can instantly fast forward to a part of the track. None of this requires an application to load, the preview shows up almost instantly. Awesome.
You'd have to guess that lots and lots of QuickTime junk is loaded up to have the audio preview be available so quickly, and is that why this OS requires I have 256 megs to run smoothly? Thank goodness I have half a gig.
