After years of tweaking ive finally come to the end of all the silliness. I am actually happy with Leopard the way it is. Sure, there can be small things that could be improved or brought more to my liking - but right now im just very happy to have an operating system that is more or less 'great'. I even like the transparent menu bar!!!!!! It took acouple of days to get used too but i like it very much now. I LOVE spaces (and the mail notes) - perfect! Best thing ever. And the new finder. And even time machine is great - and will be better once you can start a backup manually without changing disk option. .Mac syncing works proper it seems with preferences and things dont disappear from the menubar like before. everything seems to work proper now. I have no feeling to add 3rd party software to change what is already included. And this way i never have to worry about potential glitches. Maybe im easily satisfied but i like Leopard the way it is!! It does what i need it to do and thats all that matters!
