Apple appropriates term "Sandbox" in Leopard

From Apple's web site describing "new" security features of Leopard (

Enjoy a higher level of protection. Sandboxing prevents hackers from hijacking applications to run their own code by making sure applications only do what they’re intended to do. It restricts an application’s file access, network access, and ability to launch other applications. Many Leopard applications — such as Bonjour, Quick Look, and the Spotlight indexer — are sandboxed so hackers can’t exploit them."

Apple's Sandbox seems to be very different than SuperDuper!'s, but seems to be a major potential source of confusion to new users of SuperDuper on Leopard.
