    Leopard isn't doing it for me. Lightroom is not working correctly, and my photoshop license key is not registering so as of now i'm on a trial. I know this is most likely adobe, but it is still not usable for me outside of web browsing and music. I'm in tiger right now because I need to edit some pictures. thank god for superduper!

    I might be going back every so often. I can't seem to install the mcrypt module for PHP which is oh-so necessary for my web development.

    I booted into Tiger earlier to see how much of an upgrade Leopard is and even after a days use I am really liking all the features they added and going back to Tiger i felt a little crippled.

    I thought about it on my MacBook because of the choppiness. Now that I use 2D dock and removed a few widgets (and an Erase and Install :rolleyes: ) I am more than happy to stay in Leopard.

    As with all new things, there will be a few 'bugs' to iron out, stick with leopard & wait for updates to 'fix' the bugs, Personally i'm waiting to the summer, adding new boot drive and 3 other new hard drives (4 x 1tb) so i may see about installing leopard then, but stick with it guys ;)

    Definitely not going back. Can't think of a reason to go back?

    I've been having some dislikes with Leopard but now is getting better... I tested the computer yesterday by working hard in Photoshop to see how it flows and it's very nice... I think I'll stay with Leopard for a while... :apple:

    glad you got it worked out

    for me, Leopard is performing better than I expected on my G4's. Tiger's definitely a memory.

    sorry to hijack the thread but, am I the only one who feels safari 3 is slower than safari 3 beta?

    I have no numbers to back this up....I'm just going on 'snappiness' ;)

    It is so much faster for me, almost the definition of snappy.

    No way am I going back to Tiger. Spaces alone is worth the upgrade. It runs smooth as glass on my Powermac G5 dual 2.0 and my Ibook G4 1.33 12". It also runs great on my daughters 2nd Gen Mac Mini. I did the upgrade on all three computers with zero problem. Leopard is rock solid on all 3 machines.

    I'm not going back... Leopard may currently have a few bugs and a few incompatibilities, but a lot of the features I really like and Tiger just doesn't do it for me anymore.

    I'm pretty sure the question was "Who else is going back to Tiger?" Not "Who else is NOT going back to Tiger?"

    If I can't find a solution to this silly Stacks-issue will I definitely go back to Tiger.

    I feel as crippled as when I am forced to work on Windows machine for gods sake. What is this?

    I am....

    There's just simply too much broken in terms of my necessary programs in order for it to work for me.

    I'm going to give it another 4-5 months and see if they have the issues with CS3 and smart phone synching solved. Until then, it turns into a simple internet and email machine. I need more. :(

    LOL. Always happens. Just start a thread called "Who Else HATES the iPhone?" The most common answer is right out of Family Circus. Little Billy would be proud. I have to say, an "AppleTV strategic blunder?" thread might have legs though. :p

    I've got it installed on two of my machines so far (an iBook and Mac Pro). No complaints. No compatibility issues. Won't go back to Tiger.

    I got PHP5 to build with mcrypt on Leopard. You can install mcrypt with fink, then just add "--with-mcrypt=shared,/sw" to your configure commands.

    After finding all the "broken" and regressed things from Leopard, and realizing how much I am NOT using most of the "new features" (from a UI standpoint), Tiger is looking better and better. I don't mean to undermine Leopards inner-workings, either. Snappier window response, networking and improved ichat/mail ARE appreciated... "Spaces" I had in Tiger with a 3rd party app (that had killer transitions btw), and additional Photobooth effects along with Time Machine aren't important enough to me.

    But, the particular sore spots for myself:
    Dock - option for nestled folders
    Stacks - stationary icons that don't change with new apps and downloads
    Finder Icons - less homogenized more visual diversity
    Spotlight - Used to be simple and organized
    Front Row - lost the "zing" with UI and transitions
    Front Row - Re-integrate with itunes - and keep playing when it's activated.
    Broken Widgets
    Broken Apps
    Firewall - Seeming too "dumbed down" or neutered
    Login - background looks "cartoony" miss blue

    It seems the very things that drew me back into the Apple world with Tiger - are being cluttered, blended and muted with Leopard. I give the new kitty until 10.5.1 to fix at least 1/3 of those problems - otherwise going back to my old kitty.
