Not yet, but soon.
"Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
I am. And I really do enjoy it. It's not drastically different. But the small features are mostly handy. I like the new way of viewing documents as I can scroll through my teachers' powerpoints w/out opening them. Spaces is also fun to use, and handy at times. But then again, five of us went in on the family pack, so it was less than $40 a person. In addition, I like how easy it is to now use Mail. Now I have both my school and "work" accounts configured so it's really easy to read/send mail. But overall, it depends on how bad you want it.
I'm currently using Tigger, it works great, but bounces a bit much.

We have Leopard on 5 networked machines in my home office for a couple of weeks. No problems. It even ran good on a 5+ year old G4 tower (since retired from active service). All the other Macs running 10.5 are Intel, one G5 tower (my machine, hopefully to be replaced within a few months).
I'm running it too. I have no basis to compare to though because it's my first experience with a Mac. What does everyone think the best new feature is? I was a little disappointed because I couldn't get my Yahoo email to work in the mail program. That convinced me to get a Gmail account with a normal name. No more SuperGr8ManSlut@yahoo.com for me.
it's o.k. (installed it the day it came out). but just o.k.
love the speed boost (Core2 Duo MBP) and Boot Camp, otherwise it's a bit meh.
the latest update seems to have cleared up my AirPort issues, too.
Just installed it. Insert disk, click start, easy peasy.
The new dock is cool, but what is really cool is the new finder. The sidebar has a shared category; not only can it see my folks' computer (sitting in their living room stealing their wireless), it sees Mother's memory card from her camera, sitting in the reader connected to her computer (full of grandma pictures, thanksgiving table, grandkids, the floor).
Box is noticeably snappier now too.
Did quite a few installations the past week. Upgrading from previous versions carries over too many incompatible settings. Best to do a clean install and wipe out the previous OS. Luckily, not many applications store their dependencies in the OS folders, so no need to re-install programs. So far, things looks pretty nice. Seems to be more optimized for the Intel Macs than the previous G4/G5 models.
