As a website designer and repair technician, it's always in my best interest to stay one version behind. It simply does not seem profitable to disrupt a clients important project with upgrades and "beta testing" the latest cool features. That said, I kept my MacBook on OS 10.4 and my G5 PPC on 10.3... Yesterday, while designing a brochure on my MacBook, Apple Software Update offers me the latest in iApps and a security update. Like a n00b, I agreed. After restart, I noticed my MacBook is running very slow and thought to myself "Okay, it's doing it's index thing" and that it would be 'supercharged' after it was done. Nope. It's still running slower than ever. I have never seen this MacBook run this slow. In fact, It's running about as fast as my iMac G3. So I jump on the internet and what do I find? "LEOPARD IS THE BEST OS EVER! IT'S FASTER THAN TIGER! " So I stop by MacRumors to see if there's any truth in that before I upgrade. but wait! Am I being pwn3d into buying Leopard?
