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.

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.

Just a n00b question that's been bothering me.

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

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.

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