    Well install went great. Im running a Mac Pro 2.66 Octo that i upgraded myself. So you cant even call it official mac hardware anymore. iMac 24", iMac 17" and 2 Macbook Pro's 15"

    Photoshop CS3 installed great
    Maya 2008 installed great
    LIttle Snitch 2 Beta 10 works great

    Need to wait for some apps to update like iDefrag and Super Duper. Understandable since there very thorough.

    Best new surprise feature i found was the fact i can resize my partitions on the fly without erasing the volume.

    Worst new surprise is stacks dont support nested folders.

    Overall I love it.
    Sorry to see so many having issues.
    I'd recommend erase and install always.

    Just a n00b question that's been bothering me.

    The 3-D dock. Can it be turned off?

    Meh... my friend got Leopard tonight and we were messing around with it. It seems okay, but not as great as I expected. The backdrops in Photobooth were a total disaster it was so funny to watch it fail... Oh well I won't judge too much until I get it on my own machine.

    If its on the side, not sure about if its on the bottom. I actually like it, pictures dont do it justice, its really nice.

    I've seen it on the side, but that's not where I keep my dock.:p

    Is there a way to make the top bar a solid color? The transparency looks really odd compared to the solid finish of application windows.

    If you mean can the 3-D look of the dock be turned back to a 2-D look, then the answer is yes. I've seen in a bunch of threads already where people are showing their 2-D dock on the bottom of the screen. It's accomplished by a simple terminal command.

    Candybar 3 will have dock customization, but for now there is Terminal, put this in:

    Code:
    $ defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES; killall Dock
    
    This to reverse:
    Code:
    $ defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO; killall Dock
    
    Or download these Applescripts :)

    It really should be an option in System Preferences. Along with removing Wikipedia support from the OS completely.

    Agree with point one, not with point two.

    Perhaps in a later revison (10.5.1 or .2) They'll make it a preference, but for now we have to deal with this.

    Yeah, it should be an option...

    But, anyway I made this useless app a while ago that changes the dock from 2D to 3D

    Have fun
