    I finally took the plunge and upgraded to Leopard ... I like it. I held off because of all the controversy, but geez, I actually like it. I am downloading the 10.5.2 update right now (342 MB).

    I don't mind the new dock, I don't mind the translucent menu, it feels very sophisticated...

    I wonder what 10.5.2 has in store ...

    In the real world, there is no "controversy". Leopard is awesome, enjoy.

    I agree, Leopard is one of the best versions of Mac OS X I have ever used. I used Panther and Tiger for a short while on various different Macs but I never got to actually sit down and learn the whole thing, but when I switched from Windows to the Mac side it didn't take very long to get a hang of Leopard. Plus, it looks great, and has a great deal of functionality.

    Be very, very thankful you aren't running it on an iBook. Mine suxx0r5 with Leopard. But, when I get a MacBook, I'm sure I'll like it!

    Glad you're up to date now! :)

    Sadly, say goodbye to the translucent drop-down menus in 10.5.2 :(

    They've made them nearly opaque again because of the whiners.

    Otherwise it's a very solid update. And Leopard as a whole is great for me.

    I don't find that they are really that much different before and after the update, just slightly more legible.

    I'm running on an iBook and it's just fine. It's a G4, 1.33GHz with 1.5GB RAM... I also run on an Intel 2.16GHz C2D White Imac with 3GB RAM and the difference in speed is very tolerable such that I don't feel like I have to run out and get an MB or MBP. Of course, I won't refuse one either if the wifey tells me to get one.;)

    I upgrade my MBP, and it is really nice. I also have a Powermac G4 dual 1 Ghz with 1.5 GB ram, how will is run on that machine? I plan on replacing it with a Mac Pro in a few months, should I wait, or attempt an install. Thanks!

    It should work pretty well on there as you have plenty of RAM - I'd go for it! :)

    I installed Leopard on my G4 (not the main volume, but another hard drive) to see how it would perform. Unfortunately it is slower than tiger. I think I will go back to tiger for now on that system. I am going to get a MP in a few months.
