Note: I thought there was a thread titled this already but couldn't find it.

I installed last night and went to bed happy. The specs of my comp are below.
Here are my first impressions. I'll post more as I play more.


Type of Installation: Erase and Install

My Scale:
* - Bad, Much Worse than Jaguar
* * - Poor, Worse than Jaguar
* * * - OK, On par with Jaguar
* * * * - Good, better than Jaguar
* * * * * - Great, way better than Jaguar

GUI Speed: * * * * *
Snappy, windows appear to move around faster, no hangups like before. Compared to Jag

Finder: * * * *
Love it, useful - Had problems connecting to my PC but it turned out to be user error.:) - I needed to go in and make sure my username was correct. I had renamed my computer differently on setup.

Expose: * * * * * (new feature)
Wow, really useful - don't think f9-f11 are the best keys for those that use their right hand on the touchpad. Beauty of it is that you can change it to whatever key you want. Without a mouse I'm using the hot spot corners. Very cool.

Startup: * * *
No noticeable speed gain here but since I don't restart very often I never really cared. :D

On restart it brought up a black box that said I needed to restart again. After that it restarted fine.
