    Any advice, or cool things I should know?

    I recently got an iMac and installed Leopard on it.. just want to learn some cool stuff, :D.

    When playing Chess, don't get frustrated when your beaten even on easy, that application could probably beat Kasparov.

    Running Spaces yet?

    Go into System Preferences, Expose & Spaces, click on the Spaces tab, ensure Spaces is enabled (checkbox top left).

    Set a hotkey at the bottom to switch between spaces. Try the hotkey and opening up different applications on different desktops.

    My sister got very frustrated one night when she was finally about to beat it on easy and it declared a draw instead.

    Expose is very useful (you can find it in System Preferences, same place as Spaces). Setting it to a mouse button is really useful, think of it like alt+tab on Windows.

    Try out Photo Booth and look online for new effects that you can use with it, you'll have hours of fun photographing yourself.

    The mosaic screensaver. I could watch it for hours (or at least for the 5 minutes I have set between the screensaver starting and my display going to sleep), always trying to see when I can guess what the next picture is going to be.

    There should be a poll on this - have you ever beaten chess?

    Oh yeah, one other cool feature (thought not new to Leopard). Turn on speech recognition and say "Tell me a joke". Someone at Apple has too much time on his/her hands...
