Description:: The latest update to the Apple OS X "Leopard" operating system makes the strongest case yet for PC users to switch from Windows. In our initial look at the OS, we dubbed it the best operating system ever made for the vast majority of users. That's even more true now that 10.5.2 fixes some of the first-release glitches. Find out what new and improved in the full report.

Now that they've added more options to Stacks, added a Time Machine menu bar icon (duh) and optimized the rest of the system Leopard really is better than Tiger. This is coming from someone running it on a 12" PB so I notice speed increases a little more than the MB, iMac, etc owners.

When my stack fans out, all the images and text are invisible. This might be resolved with a simple restart, but I might as well d/l 10.5.2 while I'm at it (I'm not big on restarting :D)

Edit: Downloaded the update, attempted to restart, infinite beachball before it managed to restart by itself. =|

Had to manually power off, and have to download the updates all over again.

There were two problems in 10.5.0 and 10.5.1 that I was hoping 10.5.2 would fix on my MacBook Pro (but didn't impact my old G4 Mac mini)

1) My wifi connection would drop to my Airport Extreme base station at random.

2) In Finder, I could not browse the drives attached to the AE base station. It could see the share, but it would not show the files (but if I used :apple:K I could add the drive and browse it just fine).

The upgrade appears to have fixed these problems and so far I haven't found any new ones.
