    Now that real people with real machines are running real copies of 10.5......

    I've (my parents) got a mini..
    G4, 512mb RAM
    It's running 10.3.9

    If I pick up a copy of Leopard for it tonight, how will it perform?

    It's used for internet/email/photos/watching home videos (not even rendering them)

    There was no reason to upgrade from 10.3 to 10.4, but with Time Machine, I'm thinking that it's time to get a backup system in place. What do you say, will it run or would I just be fixing one problem while making another?

    It sounds like it'll probably run okay. I'd pick up some extra RAM for it to run good though. Other threads here have people running Leopard on old G3's and it seems to work fine. More RAM will probably help though.
