    I'm a fairly new switcher. I got my macbook in june. I loved tiger, but leapord took something great and made it perfect.

    Spaces+Expose=the best computing experience ever. iChat is very nifty, mail is fast(i actaully use it now) and a bunch of other things.

    its not really neccesary, but it's very nice

    Mine's out for delivery. I'll be installing it this weekend. I'm actually looking forward to it but not the fact that my CS2 won't work anymore! Be months before I can upgrade to CS3.

    I'm looking forward to time machine, the new Quick Look and Spaces.

    So far so good everything seems to work. I think its a bit quicker but its really hard to tell. The biggest problem I have seen is attempting to verify permissions its just very slow.

    6 hrs?? I thought it was a long time when it took 6 minutes. Sounds like you may have more wrong then Leopard issues.

    Love the new avatar Ninapants!

    So far I am enjoying Leopard. I have a few minor issues with it, and suspect they will quickly go away. x11 is broken, an issue if you're an X developer or a hard core X user. (If you don't know what that means, you probably don't need to worry.) Also there were some issues syncing iCal and the iPhone, though I found a brute force method that worked.

    That said, I love Leopard. Once I figured out how to do a few things, the installation was easy and trouble free. I lost no data.

    I can connect to work, including both Linux lab machines and Windows machines. It would be no good if I can't do the things I need to do. I can, and it is good.

    Spaces is excellent, allowing you to have multiple virtual desktops. They did it right from what I can see. I now have AOL Radio. While not directly Leopard related, I like listening to XM Radio. I couldn't do it well on my Mac under Tiger. Now with the new Beta AOL Radio app, I can do it. What good is an OS if it can't support the things you want or need to do? On my dock I have stacks for certain groups of applications. My dock has become uncluttered.

    Was it worth it? Yes. Was it hassle free? No, but then once I looked at how things are done in the Mac world, it was easy. Problems notwithstanding, I like Leopard better than Tiger, and I liked Tiger very much.

    I'm still getting acquainted with all the features they've added. But very nice to look at.

    The only gripe that I have so far is the Spaces app they've added. On Tiger, I really enjoyed using VirtueDesktop for this purpose. Very customizable in terms of making your own keyboard shortcuts and also how you change from desktop to desktop by clicking on the edge of the screen. Pressing F8 or the limited shortcuts Apple allows is really a hassle. Adding Spaces activation to the hotcorners helps the transition from VirtueDesktop to Spaces, but I really hope apple makes it more customizable. I'd like to be able to switch from each desktop using keyboard shortcuts on my left hand (pressing the number keys limits a user to about key4, beyond that becomes a drag) while manuevering the mouse with my right hand.

    Spaces is a downgrade compared to VirtueDesktops. But I really like how you can drag and drop applications to a certain desktop when viewing all of your desktops.

    I can grok Spaces isn't what you expected, BUT there is a fast way to navigate to adjacent desktops. You can use the arrow keys and one of the other keys, ctrl I believe, but I'm not sure which one as I'm at work using a *cough* Dell. -_^

    I personally love it, as does my brother. Spaces integration with the OS, especially Expose, makes it so much better than VirtueDesktops (though I miss the cube ). I haven't had any stability or compatibility issues.

    My only gripe is that some of Quicksilver's features don't seem to work out of the box like they did in Tiger. I'm sure I could manually fix the problem, but I'm hoping an update is on the way because I'm lazy
