    There seems to be quite a few problems with Leopard so I was wondering if I should install leopard or just wait a few months before I install it...I've already ordered my copy to install on the iMac I bought back in August...

    Should I just wait guys?

    just make sure you have a back up. no reason not to install.

    Since you already ordered it why not install it on an external HD and run it from there. That way, you can decide whether or not you even have any problems with it, and you won't lose Tiger. My experience so far hasn't been bad. The biggest problem I've encountered is connecting to my campus 802.1x wireless :confused:

    Remember that generally it's only the people with problems that post on forums. So that can give a rather skewed idea of how well a system is working.

    No problems here either, but it usually boils down to conflicts with third party software and hardware.

    well I just installed leopard and I must say the interface is nice but it is a tad slow when first loading up the programs I had before...

    Also i have this 1up video game news widget and it changed all the fonts to this scripty font that's hard to read....

    does anyone know how to change the font to a regular font?

    Like the man said - make sure you have a backup (bootable if possible), then go for it.

    Personally I've had no issues at all having installed Leopard on 4 machines so far (home and work).... I'd advise against running the regular upgrade process, though - go for an Archive & install which is far less likely to cause problems.
