Yes... going back to Tiger today. I'm going to wait for the Leopard updates to come and fix all that is not working smooth.

Anybody else feels like me today?

i am having a grand time with leopard. Other than a couple of easy downloads of some software I use and their site being down, I've had 0 complaints

I'm going to stick with it, the pros outweigh the cons, only issue I have at the moment is Adium and I have a temporary fix for that.

All in all, it's pretty slick. Although I did a erase-and-install, which might explain it.

What's happening with Adium in your computer?

Sorry to hear you are having such horrible problems. So far I'm loving Leopard.

maybe you don't have enough ram or the recommended amount at least?:confused:
I think he's a using a MBP 2.4 with 2GB...

Fairly sure he's got enough of what is required! :D

I'm with you about Leopard not being all that impressive. There are a few things in it that just bug me. And my activity monitor doesn't work anymore. And was I just oblivious to it, but did Apple ever mention that Leopard was going to drop Classic support for PPC macs?

Without know what computer you have, I'm guessing that's the problem. My MBP has none of those problems.

my biggest complaint with Leopard is that my macbook's fan comes on a lot more often, but I still can't see going back to Tiger. Leopard is so much better in so many ways.

What kind of installation did you do?

Really bizarre. I'm on a 2.1GHz Core Duo MacBook Pro and I'm not experiencing any of those issues. Animations are smooth and my fan hasn't run all day (although it is sort of chilly in my office). I've had no problems with Leopard at all other than that little "blue screen of install" unpleasantness at the very beginning.

What do you mean you don't know what computer I have... I have it in my signature... I have a new MBP with 2.4GHz Intel with 2GB of RAM

Here is my computer info

The animations... Genie, Scale effect and the Spaces transitions... all choppy... when working under battery power is more choppy
I am loving Leopard. A little sluggish at first but now it is faster than ever. When did you upgrade? What type of upgrade?

What's not running smooth for you? Mine's fine, faster and less buggy than Tiger.
I wouldn't go that far. It's much more buggy than 10.4.9 (or whatever it is we were on). For the life of me I don't recall where, but the dock keeps vanishing, files move to their folders etc. Odd little things like that. Safari 3 crashing every so often (both my machines) isn't so good either.

But it is better than Tiger. Needs bug fixing though.

I got Leopard in my computer the first day it came out (October 26) and did an erase and clean install.

I had a similar problem the first time I installed Tiger. The problem is most likely not with Leopard, just a faulty installation. Rather than re-installing Tiger, I'd re-install Leopard.
