    I myself prefer Tiger to how leopard is shaping up, more specifically the desktop. I think the menubar and dock don't look as refined as they do in Tiger, and the folder icons look strange and un-mac-like.

    screenshots of the latest leopard build can be found here.

    Leopard strikes me as much more unified, and I like that (and thats a good thing because it is!). Tiger was good, but it incorporated much of the same look as the previous Mac OS's. It is about time, in my opinion, that Mac OS X looked the same all over.

    I am a fan of the new iTunes look, so there for a fan of the Leopard look.

    overall: Leopard.

    but there are some elements that i know will take some time adjusting to, such as the dock.

    I use UNO to get rid of brushed metal and the Agua system icon set, and so those aren't a problem anyway. I like Leopard's bigger shadows on the prominent apps.

    As a Quicksilver user and keyboard-shortcut-fanatic, my dock and menubar are on autohide. The dock is small on the left with only the Finder and Trash, I hope it won't be weird...

    1. there is no choice for users
    2. its hard to make judgement right now, w/o any real world experience.
    3. apple defines what "mac-like" is, eventually. and I actually have good confidence :) in apple's design

    The dock looks like overkill on the design, but I'm sure I will grow to like it.

    Not OS included, sure, but there is UNO and Shapeshifter, as well as countless other OS tweaks. I hope there will be an 'old dock and menubar' option in UNO's Leopard version, for the haters (which may include me) :)

    Leopard by far. The only thing I don't like in the latest seed is the default desktop picture. I actually liked the grass better.

    Coruscant, but Boston will do.

    My guess is, if you don't like the setup of Leopard, I'm sure there will be a Tiger "classic" setup under System Preferences or something. That and a new Shapeshifter will come out someday.

    they've never done that before so i doubt such a thing will be there. you can surely toggle the transparency of the menubar, but they dont like having different skins.

    Personally I like Leopard better but that is probably just because I like a change every now and again and I'm getting bored of the Tiger UI :).

    Leopard.

    I think the Dock looks neat, I know alot of people dont like it.

    I like the new "traffic lights" too. Much more shiny.

    I like the unified "grey" and rid of the brushed metal.

    Leopards, although I hate the sidebar arrowed menu (the left bit) in finder and iTunes, seriously, it looks horrid

    Tigers are the ones with the stripes right? Those are the ones I like; I mean after Lions that is.

    OS X Tiger has way too many looks. I like the unifedness of Leopard, I can't really say if I like it yet. But a unifed desktop was a long time coming.

    I just wish they'd get rid of all the old Aqua gel looking junk like in the scrollbars. It's old and doesn't even look good anymore. My 2¢ worth..

    I definitely prefer a unified look and I'm pretty sure I will love the iTunes like Finder.

    Leopard, it just looks so much better than Tiger. I haven't seen a screen cap that I didn't lust over. I can't wait.
