    Upgrade or No Upgrade: Leopard
    So I have been thinking of upgrading to Leopard. At first I wasn't too impressed, however I now have the need for some windows only software.

    I could get Parallels or VM Fusion, but it seems Leopard has boot camp and a ton of other features, and it doesn't hurt to be up to date.

    I was mostly worried about it slowing down my macbook (2.0ghz 2gb ram intel core 2 duo) and toast 8 not working with it, although I dont know if there are issues with that.

    Basically I was wondering, does anyone have any great praise for leopard, or does anyone wish they never upgraded?

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 3.3GHz, 512GB Flash, 16GB memory, OS X.11.4.
    Find Leopard fast, responsive and rock solid, although my advice to anyone needing to use Windows software is set up a cheap PC laptop such as a Dell Latitude Pentium 4 with 2GHz processor. Can get them for about $250.00.

    It will depend on your individual circumstances.

    I have both but prefer Panther (just), and have reverted to Panther on my internal drive with Leopard on my external drive.
