Thanks everyone!
I'm using Carbon Copy Cloner to copy my EVERYTHING to my firewire HD, just in case. It seemed to be the best idea...
I'm still not sure if I got a Tiger disc with my MBP, it'd be at my parents' house... so I figured I'd just use CCC to protect as much stuff as possible.
Guh I'm SO excited for Leopard... Lol

I have discovered another 'bug' though and can replicate this any time. If you watch an iTunes video in full screen, and have your dock set to 'hide', after you finish the video, the dock will not reappear unless you shut down or 'kill all dock'

Anyone else notice this?
Nope, not gonna take that bet.

Cannot however, replicate your issue with the dock on my MBP. Have tried several videos now and tried different scenarios of when to try the dock after the video.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

I don't consider the $129 a waste because I'm going to use my leopard disk as a bootcamp driver disk for now and will do a clean install of leopard again later (maybe after the 10.5.1 update is released???) The experience has also helped me appreciate how good tiger really is already. The only thing I miss a little from leopard is the dock stacks and finder enhancements.

For those of you who say you've had no issues, I really hope your luck lasts but I had no issues at first either. The bugs hit me like a brick in the head out of the blue after 11 days of long and heavy daily use (it was only released 12 days ago).

Tiger rocks, I love my Mac !!!

Note to Steve: You SUCK!!!! Can't you get anything right the first time? Nice legacy, you tool.

Cheers,

Ditto here and I have had it on 24 a day. No Keychain bugs at all. No nothing so far. Just one plug in for Safari and they already have a version for Leopard, but that is NOT 10.5's fault.

Wow! Seems like a mixed review. Tiger hasn't let me down, so I think I may wait to pick up 10.5 until bugs have been worked out.

-From past experiences, anyone have any idea how long Apple might take to release such patches?

I wonder if it's unique to the MacBook, or GMA950?

I just did it again... it's fine if the Dock is left or right, or not hidden. I reported it to Apple anyway.

6 years? So you obviously didn't upgrade to Tiger on 10.4.0 then? Now THAT was full of bugs... I guess you also didn't upgrade to Panther, with a Firewire HDD attached (where it erased any Firewire drive attached) and I'm guessing you never used 10.2.8, which was a disaster zone.

Leopard is largely regarded as the most stable x.x.0 release yet. The 10.5.1 update will be out before too long, I am sure many of these issues will be addressed.

Can you do this without having to do a fresh install?
Is it possible to do some sort of uninstall of Leopard?

I am running BootCamp on my Macbook and everything is running fine there except for accessing my External HDDs which is the problem I am having on the MAC side as well. So I am wondering if it is possible to down grade the Leopard back to Tiger and it fix the problem all together? If so how do I do it so that I don't have to do a complete fresh install of everything?
