    There's been a couple of updates now and it seems most of the bugs have been figured out.... My main concern is the WIFI problem I've been reading about.

    Is it worth upgrading to Leopard from Tiger? It's not like I have to buy it, it came with my MBP..

    Let me know what you think!

    Honestly, Leopard is simply amazing.

    Forums are a place for people to go and get help, so you are going to always see more bad than good. I'm sure 95% of the leopards out there are perfectly fine.

    I, personally, have been using it since release day and the only problem I have is the screen not waking up from sleep.

    I've been using Leopard since it came out. Despite the initial huge problem of not being able to run Pro Tools which I have now fixed everything is fine. My startups can be a bit erratic at times (nearly typed erotic there). Other than that it runs very smoothly. Spaces is a life saver for me, I think you will like it.

    Definitely worth it. There are so many little improvements that make it great. I've been relatively problem-free since installing it on release day.

    Just back up your stuff if you're nervous. I did. You won't go back to Tiger. No way.

    Last week, I switched from Tiger to Leopard on my SR MBP. I am very happy with the change; the new features are nice and I have not noticed any bugs (except one thing with Quicktime display of PNGs, which was fixable) or wireless problems.

    I kept a detailed log of my installation procedure, so people like you or me may make use of it and have a trouble-free install:

    It's kinda heavy on the science/programming apps, but you can ignore those parts if you want.
