    There seems to be quite a lot of threads asking for features to be "fixed" in Leopard - the Stacks, the Dock etc. Given that Apple has come all this way with these features like this, how likely are they to 'fix'/'change' them now? Wouldn't the onus in these .x updates be for bug-fixes, not changes to functionality -- I mean, wouldn't a 'fixed' Stacks functionality appear in 10.6? Just like how a Spotlight that searches not just on local drives was 'fixed' in 10.5 Leopard?

    I came to Mac late with I think 10.4.9 so I'm not sure what these early updates do to the OS.. maybe I'm wrong and we will actually see some 'fixing'?!

    Fixing features are subject to the personal opinions of the people who feel they need fixing. So all "fixing" them will do is incite people who thought they were fine before to demand that they be "fixed" back.

    So, no, I do not think Apple will fix anything other than actual bugs.

    I would "like" Apple to fix feature functionality such as Spotlight but, I know it won't happen.
