I posted my experience with Leopard and Time Machine in a thread a few days back. It's been a disaster.
For the ordinary user, I am sure that Leopard is fine. However, I am not an ordinary user. I run FCP and PS all day on an MBP. Leopard has caused my system to crash on a daily basis. Time Machine requires too much hand-holding. I have used macs since 1982. I am disappointed. Really SUPERCALIFRAGALISTICEXPEALIDOCIOUSLY let down.

No you haven't. Macs weren't introduced until 1984.

Heh! Good point!

Mac users swear by their computers. PC users swear at their computers.

Ok, it shouldn't crash. But try a complete erase and install. It works flawlessly on the two Macs I use.

What do you mean Time Machine requires hand holding? I just set it up to backup my work files and it works brilliantly. It backs up without you noticing and it was great when I accidently overwrote a file - I just went back a couple of days and dragged it into the present.
