I'm interested in upgrading but not burning a path to the Apple store. My favorite recent O.S. change was the implementation of widgets. Was that a life-changing event or what? The best thing I hear about Leopard is speed increases all over the place so, yeah, I'll upgrade fairly soon. _________________ Blog | Twitter | YouTube | Live Video
I agree with you there Zak... why they keep messing with a good thing is beyond my comprehension!
Kori, I'm all for continuing to improve a product, and if there are real advantages to Leopard, I'll be all over it. However, if it's a pain in the ass in that it lacks compatibility or performance enhancements, it's just not worth it for a few cute features.
Keeping my eyes (and mind) open, though. _________________ site • blog
I have not yet, but I am in the throws of purchasing a new Xserve fro work, and will be putting 10.5 Server on it - been waiting this purchase on that. I'll also be upgrading my work laptop, but may be holding off a bit on this one for my SL/Perfoormance rig.
NiceCast has a beta quality Leopard compatible version, and I'd rather wait for full release on that, since it's critical.
GB should certainly be OK, since I'm on GB4 from iLife '08
SL I've heard very mixed things about.
There are some great things (especially under the hood) in 10.5 but it'll be interesting to see how it all shakes out.
One word of caution, the APE framework, which is installed to hook into the OS at a low level can make an upgrade install go belly up if it's an older version. Apparently older Logitech "driver" software is one 3rd party who used the APE framework to make their fancy stuff work - I think on all my machines (and I use Logitech mice on all of them) I've just left the original system driver to handle the mouse. An archive and install or a "clean" install is reported to be fine.
