Hi guys

I decided to go ahead and sign up as a Select member. So can you guys tell me, how stable is Leopard running on an Intel MBP for production atm?

Thanks

This question should never be asked.

The answer is -- indubitably -- "not stable enough".

It is not stable enough to use as your primary operating system. I had it installed for a few days, and I was getting TONS of unexpected quits.

I'm using a G4 Mac Mini. iTunes has crashed just once after installation. Safari hasn't crashed even once(It crashes all the time in Tiger*:p).

It isn't stable enough yet to be used as a primary OS. But, most third-party programs run fine on leopard. Finder has lots of issues though(mostly with alignment).

Photobooth and Front Row still work only on Macs with in-built cameras and IR respectively.
