going on current experience (granted it isnt much) Leopard was definitely rushed to the market...kinda like Tiger was.

This might be the most content-less thread-starter I've seen on MacRumors that wasn't spam. Some details or elaboration would be nice, OP, as that's a rather strong claim and you provide no justification.

No reports of self destructing FW drives yet, so it cannot be worse than some of the other releases. :p

All major news sources that reviewed Leopard said it was solid. I think your lack of experience is closer to zero experience. I'll guess you are.... 14 years old?

There are problems...

-lots of apps quit on start up, take a few launches to work (Colin Mcrae Demo, iTunes, Mail...)
-Finder restarts a lot for me

but that's all I have found.

its a .0 release...

by .1/2 it should be fine.

Its been that way with all OS X releases. Trust me, its better than what 10.0 was... that was such a dog! Networking was a nightmare.

I have to admit though, other than a few software/plugin issues, its a solid piece of software.

As they spent 30 months mainly refining OSX (of the 300 new features, none are really that groundbreaking, and many could be achieved with 3rd party products) its a pity that there have been so many problems...I won't be updating until at least some of the many broken apps that I use work...

It's not that they're groundbreaking, never heard of features, it's that they're implemented in such a way by Apple that makes them work extremely well and are user friendly. For example...Spaces. Virtual desktops have been around for ages, but I've found other virtual desktop implementations on the other OSes and 3rd party software clunky. Time Machine...backups have been around forever. But backing up, and then restoring said backup was always a lengthy, manual, cumbersome process. Time Machine backs up in the background at set intervals without you needing to do anything. And you don't need to look through a million archives to restore a file that was backed up.

That was the initial release of Tiger (10.4). FileVault also had a tendency to hose files IIRC.

I was sure to take a full backup, as always, before playing with this kitty cat ;)

The 10.5 OS seems pretty solid to me so far after a day hacking with it. App compatibility is the acid test though, and it looks like there's some work to do there. Doesn't help that Apple made the stupid decision not to seed the GM to developers. A lose-lose situation.

Programs are restarting a lot on me as well. Mainly Safari and Preview. Yahoo Messenger doesn't even work. But that's Yahoo's lazy fault.
