So there are alot of threads where people have had issues with Leopard. I wanted a thread for those of us that have had no issues. I had a smooth install no issues went very quickly, no program issues, all data recovered and everything works. Who else?

There are 10 types of people in the world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

There are two types of IT problems in the world. PEBKAC and ID 10 T's.

I've had a few interesting issues with bluetooth networking since the upgrade, but I don't know if that is a Leopard issue or a problem with the other laptop. So I'll count myself as problem-free for now.

Count me in as one who has had no problems whatsoever. The install went perfectly (A&I) and everything has been working great. I am really enjoying learning all of the little things about Leopard and incorporating them into my workflow. Seems like I am always finding something else that is really cool and helpful.

Well in the week I had Leopard installed on my MacBook I had no problems at all - I like it very much. Unfortunately my MacBook had another problem which I hoped Leopard might fix (wishful thinking on my part) it did not so the MacBook is now with an Apple Premium Partner or whatever they call themselves waiting to be fixed by one of their busy techs - so far... almost a week without my MacBook

Leopard has been working for me like a charm. the only thing I had go wrong was hardware related and I got that taken care of. Leopard itself though seems to work very well. I havent yet been able to get the A2DP working quite the way I want it to and havent settled on a good bluetooth a2dp headset but I will eventually dispite the mods here doing their best to keep me from experiencing a2dp on my imac.

Working great for me.Only problem I have had is when I made an account for my kids and now the Dashboard widgets don't work, nothing shows up. I can live with that as I don't use them anyhow. Seems like a wierd bug.

I did a simple upgrade and had no issues with the OS, It is much more responsive than tiger. Spotlight improvements alone made the update worth it.

Other third party apps gave me some issues until their 10.5 updates were installed. But unlike the majority of people on the board I do not blame that on the OS.

No real issues here on 4 machines. Going to do my last in my Family Pack install tonight and will then have 5 Macs with Leopard.

Only issues I have seen are sometimes when opening folders and setting it to say Folder or Icon view and going backwards, the first window changes to what I set the 2nd window to. If I close the folder and open it again, it's back to normal. Seen a few threads on it on other forums. Not a big thing but I am sure it will be addressed in 10.5.1.

Otherwise not one issue at all. IBook G4 1.33Ghz, iMac G5 2.1 iSight, Intel Mini 1.66 Core Duo & Mac Mini G4 1.5Ghz. No issues with Airport either on all 4 systems.

no problems here at all.. don't really use bootcamp at all but am using parallels and it is beautiful. Of course I installed an extra gig of ram and leopard is lovely. The only problem I have is that some software is not yet compatible for leopard, namely azureus and I am rather anxious for candybar 3 to finally be released.

leopard is smooothhh....

We guess i should throw in my 2cents for the bottom of the pile of machine performance...

My 12" iBook 1.2Ghz with 1.25Gb RAM..
Works a dream!!

The only think that doesn't work is the transparency on the toolbar.. and the dock is slightly glitchy when scrolling across the dock with magnification really quickly.. but that'll b the graphics card only being a 9200 where as the 1.33Ghz has a 9550 and can handle these features.
But that is nothing to moan about..

I have had no problems installing or running anything yet, and am chuffed to bits!!!

Only had it on for 24hrs so havn't got through all the features but really enjoying it and I know it's gunna get better as all the bug fixes come out

Highly recommended for people with the same machine!!!!!
