The new dock and finder look great but the reviews on the install give me pause. Kudos to Apple for having the confidence and posting those.

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.

A Tigger's a wonderful thing.

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.

Image and sound too, and I have a cad suite I use somewhat regularly, plus hardware (film scanners and such) that finding drivers for would be difficult.
Not that I could not find Linux apps to replace what I use, but I don't really care to learn new software.

Not until I get a new comp. I like how iMovie works now, anyway. No rush for me.

Home of the lavender leopards? Only in Fla (Jab coming from someone where the purple hurricanes are the mascot of our hometown team, 300 miles from the closest ocean).

Yeah, I can see that. The open source stuff just isn't quite up to speed yet from what I hear. Although it's more than enough for someone like me and free to boot. I'm hoping that some of these projects come together in the next few years so that we can all save a few bucks.

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).

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.
