    Hey there, how can I roll back to 10.5 without having to do a clean install?

    I ask because SL is truly an "under the hood" update, and until developers take advantage of the improvements, we won't see significant performance improvements. As of right now, plenty of stuff is broken.

    Cyberduck FTP doesn't work for me.
    Logitech Control center for my external keyboard/mouse doesn't work.
    And NTFS-3G is broken because it consumes 30% of CPU unless I eject all NFTS partitions, including the bootcamp partition.

    I thought I would be fine, I don't have any hacks/customization on my MBP, but those important tools don't work for me yet, so I want to wait a few weeks before I use SL.

    You could try an Archive and Install, but I don't know if that would work.

    As with NTFS-3G, I don't have any of those issues. Do you have the latest version?

    Do a clean install of Leopard and then restore from your last Time Machine backup.

    Cyberduck has a new build for Snow Leopard. The only downside is that you have to download and install as opposed to just check for update.

    Thank you for all your advice. :D I'll try to get things working.

    If I can't, I'll do what tcphoto said.
