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?
That's what she said?Age has nothing to do with experience.
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.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...
That was the initial release of Tiger (10.4). FileVault also had a tendency to hose files IIRC.No reports of self destructing FW drives yet, so it cannot be worse than Jaguar.
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.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.
