You don't know what Spring Loaded folders are... when you drag and drop that is when Spring Loaded folders come in to play.

I don't believe the zoom is a bug.

You said Leopard was disappointing because of a few small bugs (most of them visual).

I take it back about the spring loaded folders.

Zoom i'm sure is a bug, as Ive never noticed it before. Everything about the Finder still holds. It is far from a "visual" error that it performs horrendously when you move the window.. there's definately something wrong under the hood for this to happen.

I just watched your video.

Most of your points are up to your personal taste, which is alright of cource and up to you.

I like the new shadows, i like the new dock (and the new 2D Dock btw.) and i personally love Stacks ... (i use grid-view for my applications-folder). Though of course scrolling in stacks, would be great, i don't see a huge disappointment in the fact that (at least at the moment) scrolling is not possible. And well ... i definitely won't say 'Stacks are useless' just because of this.

On my Macs (new iMac, old iBook G4 1GHz) Leopard is way faster than Tiger. And even on my old iBook it has no problems when i drag a finder window quickly ... or whatever.

So, for me the missing ability to use time machine with network-HDDs is a disappointment, but mostly everything else in Leopard is working great ... at least for me ... and i definitely haven't regret to upgrade to 10.5 ... yet :)

The "Zoom Bug" only occurs when the zoom is very small this I believe existed in Tiger (hence why I think it wouldn't be a bug (but you may be right)).

I have absolutely no slow downs with moving a window and my proxy or window name does not become unreadable.

I would love to know if this Finder moving problem is just me, or Macbooks, or what a solution is.

I also crashed Finder earlier; I ran Quicklook on an image.. and hit on the "Import to iPhoto" button by mistake - it switches sides from the right to the left for some reason when you go full screen. So I quickly hit Force Quit for iPhoto as I didn't want it to import. Finder crashed.

When I move Finder a little bit (say 2cm by 2cm side to side) it seems to go very weird.. like it gets stuck behind or something. The dock, effects etc are fine.. bar expose and dashboard being a little slower.

If looking *up* at your screen, does the text in the menu bar appear unsmooth; almost pixelated?

Also, if I have a finder window open (as you normally do) in the background. If I go to a stack and hit "More in finder".. it loads that finder window briefly, then loads the new one on top. Seems odd?
