Well, I decided to go for an upgrade, not much of one but one anyway. Mainly to see the differences and be able to move to Mavericks if I wanted to later. I bought SL but asked some questions about the differences and I'm hoping they aren't major. I asked the "apple chat" people about it and they said if I moved to Lion or Mavericks now I would lose most of my iLife software and iDVD would cease to work well, have any of you seen that? They told me iDVD is not even made anymore. You have to burn dvds in the Finder. Considering I burn dvds for wedding videos and friends all the time it was a big reason why I did not buy the latest OSX. They said SL would work well with my programs now, so here's hoping. I'll back up and take notes of the programs I have now but wondered if any of you had tips, tricks, or observations you have seen between Leopard and SL or if the latest OSX is even that great. I also use "Expose" A LOT too, so I'm hoping I don't lose little style things like that in only one small upgrade. They said it won't effect my time machine backups that were done in Leopard, but I'm still not sure. I'll have to wait and see, I'll try and video my observations, but considering I'm so behind in this I doubt anyone will care.
