Well, I finished installing Leopard on my 500MHz TiBook, and I semi-documented the process. I think I will continue making videos of this nature surrounding my PowerBook.

Next, I'll be making a 'tuning' video and eventually a TFF video using @eyoungren's settings.

I cant imagine leopard on a 500Mhz PowerPC:p
I installed it a couple of days ago on my 667Mhz and it's OK, not noticeably slower than Tiger if I'm honest. 1Gb RAM and a 7200rpm drive will help though.

I used an on original retail DVD from launch day so the 10.5.8 update took a good couple of hours to run through though. I'd forgotten how nice the packaging was ... and that I paid £85 for it. :eek:

@128keaton Very good video for the beginner PPC enthusiast. How much faster is the "streamlined" version of Leopard over a stock 10.5.8 install?
Not much, but it's noticeably faster. I've made videos since iMovie HD, I just never published them since I was embarrassed by my voice.

Don't worry about your voice, I posted a minecraft video when I was in 7th grade and I never took it down. Good thing no one knows the channel name

The one thing that has always bothered me about Leopard is that even on a high end GPU in a G5, it always seems to have slower animations than Tiger. Disabling BeamSync and enabling QuartzGL but it is still particularly evident in the Dock animations.

I deleted my YouTube channel from when I was in 7th grade because I hated my voice as well as the quality of my videos. I'm going to probably reboot it this summer though. I have another channel, but I keep starting and stoping it and I tried to turn it around and went no where, but I'll just abandon that one and restart my original channel.

Yeah for me hopefully I can start posting more videos over the summer
