i really like the new features in mail. stationary is really awesome. and the parental controls with guest accounts. plus just how quickly it all runs
and once you fix how stacks look on the dock, they are extremely useful.

Time Machine by itself is worth the price. The rest is gravy.

The dock with stacks is great, it's smoother for me, and i like the finder layout and the new folders/windows colors.

I think Leopard overall is a great release. On my iMac, it runs great. On my older PowerBook, it was a bit sluggish, so I went back to Tiger, which is fine.

I've used Leopard extensively but don't have it on my home computer yet.

Ups:
Feels faster
Overall looks great
Time Machine
Quicklook

Downs:
The dock
The folder icon
Folders in the dock

But these can be edited to yay! With a little editing 10.5 is really good.
QUOTE Thanks
