Well, I made the jump to Leopard... only to find myself locked up for the first hour of using it. In that time, I found more reasons to go back to Tiger than I did to stick with Leopard, but I toughed it out and found it enjoyable to use once it sped up. Unfortunately, every time Spotlight tries to re-index everything slows down to a crawl again. I never use Spotlight, so does anyone know of a way to disable it under Leopard? I tried following the instructions here, but the Spotlight directive isn't present in the /etc/hostconfig file under Leopard. Any suggestions?
