I haven't played with it that much, but it appears to be like a "blue screen" (the one the weatherman stands in front of on your local news). I assume a solid, well lit background with none of the...

I have a MB 2.16GHz with 2 GB RAM and I definitely don't notice Leopard to be any slower than Tiger. I did an archive and install. Some things seem to be a little quicker.

I do notice the dock...
