    So i'm guessing Apple has nailed Leopards coffin at 10.5.8 and we won't see 10.5.9 or more like we did with Panther and Tiger right? or has anything been seeded to devs recently?

    Do you have issues with 10.5.8? It's working fine for me. But, I'm guessing that if a security issue comes up, Apple will release an update.

    My guess (and that's all it is) is that you'll see at least 10.5.9. There's a better than average chance you'll even get 10.5.10.

    I'd be surprised if apple releases a 10.5.9. I do think they'll issue a security patch or some other small fix, but for a 10.5.x fix, no they're done with 10.5 now that 10.6 is out the door.

    IIRC they came out with at least one maybe two 10.4.x updates after Leopard came out.
    But unless you are having a problem it's not like there is something to look forward too.

    Leopard came out on 26 October 2007. Pretty sure a Tiger update was delivered that month of in November.

    Didn't 10.5.8 come out shortly before SL? As in the same month...

    You are right, 10.4.11 was released on the 14th November.

    No i don't have an issue that needs fixing but neither did i at 10.4.9 or 10.3.7 but updates came out anyway. I'm just curious since its not totally out of the realm of possibility given 10.4.11

    I have a couple of issues with 10.5.8. Reported them to Apple and they were closed as "Duplicated". Maybe Apple fixed them in 10.6 but I won't upgrade ('til 10.6.5) since I don't want to trade them for a myriad of new ones.
    Fortunately I know how to avoid most of them.

    Waiting for 10.6.5 is overkill. The only annoyance I have with SL is that third party apps can’t take exclusive control of an Apple Remote any more (it can control apps, but will also control iTunes / Front Row / QuickTime at the same time). It was very stable for most at 10.6, even more so at 10.6.1, although some people who didn’t clean install seem to be having a few issues. I’d say 10.6.2 should be fine, 10.6.3 at the latest.

    Well, considering that 10.5 is the last version that works with PPC, it might get another update or 2.

    Unlikely. Pretty much zero chance given where we are now.

    Bad PS work or whatever you used. Mac OS X 10.5.9 had to be released in 2009 or 2010, but 2008 is the wrong year. So you did just register for this image and to necropost?

    Unless there is urgent need for it, we won't. I think Leopard is already very stable and bug-free. Apple is concentrating on iPhone OS 4.0 as it's due to be released in 8 hours ;) Snow Leopard is also hogging resources

    in my opinion its a tough call, unlike earlier releases, tons of Apple hardware is only capable of 10.5...not just a small demographic but a LARGE one. Mac Mini's, Macbooks etc...lots of product lins that are still around in newer iterations.

    Apple has been known to drop support suddenly but imo Leopard should be around at least for another 2 years supported otherwise kiss all the G5 Power Mac's away and also early Mac Mini adopters among others.

    Leopard is still totally viable, I hope to see support for another couple of years.

    Where and when did you buy the computer, and was it new or second-hand?

    It's not difficult to edit AboutThisMac.nib and AboutThisMac.strings. You're not running 10.5.9, if it were a developer-version, it would show the build number by default.

    According to Apple, this is by design. When SL first came out they talked about how it wasn't s necessary update (though at $30 they hoped most people would). There isn't a lot that SL can do that Leopard can't do when it comes to the end-user experience.

    I'm hoping we'll see support for a bit longer.
