We've seen the bugs thread, but who hasn't encountered a single thing wrong? I will start - me :)

Leopard is awesome and I can't wait to show it off to the Windows weenies!

Can I join decryption?? - Its been a great process for me.

Got me a free leopard t-shirt from nextbyte, had an easy install on both macbook & powerbook - Have even been able to get photoshop cs 3 installed with out a problem.

Also had no issues with software update - and found a new aperture 1.5.6 in the updates.

I have to say been the geek i am my only problem was I was up all night playing with it

Yep, I installed on my Mac Pro and PowerBook G4, no probs. Archive install on PowerBook, upgrade on Mac Pro. Everything is running perfectly so far, just working with Motion at the moment whilst I mix for the cricket here in Bellerieve, Hobart. Bah...the worst thing is that I'm here and not at home, fiddling on my Mac Pro!

one happy camper here too :) 2 stress-free installs, and loving every new feature. Had some issues with smb/afp shares, but that was a keychain and permissions issue - not leopard's fault.

No probs for me except my MacBook's Flaky Bluetooh.
It was a problem with tiger as well, so I'm fairly sure it's a hardware issue that I'll have to get checked out

No problems other than having to manually copy everything over because Migration Assistant blows.

Clean installed on a 2.4GHz MacBook Pro 15", no problems except that my iChat hack for ICQ no longer works, which isn't all that unexpected. Fixing it could be a problem though.

There wasn't a "Leopard is FREAKN awesome!" club so this will have to do :D

decryption can I join the club ? Only issue I have had was Popcorn 3 & my hacked iMovie08. Anyway iMovie was never supposed to work without core graphics. As for Popcorn 3, Roxio have slipped here as it was reported back in beta leopard.

I did the upgrade route & was simple as just took about 2 hours.

Very happy with leopard well worth the $

PS photoshop seems to work faster now !

I had no issues at all doing a clean install on my MacBook. :)

I performed an upgrade on a PowerBook which didn't go so well though - froze right after the post-install loading (blue) screen. Ended up clean installing that one and it was fine after that.

I did the upgrade install and there were a few flaky issues with apps not working, but it was all fixed with a restart.

Now to give the old G5 iMac an update…

I'll admit Leopard isn't everything I had hoped for:

* I had to recompile netatalk to before I could mount the shares on my file/print server. Other than that I'm generally happy.

* A little disappointed with Time Machine - it won't sync to my file server and hasn't really been designed with mobile (laptop) use in mind. Maybe in a later version (It would be nice for it cache changes on the local system until the backup server is available).

* I think my laptop may be running a little hotter - but that could be me (not sure)


Otherwise - all good. I'm a happy camper :)

I'll join when they put AirPort Disk related functionality back into Time Machine.

I can't believe they took it out. I really needed this at home with our laptops. That really pisses me off!

Seems to me they took out a heap of little things for the shipping build.

Other than that, leopard works fine for me. Just not adium but I think that is on their end.

As I said in another thread, I've got the feeling that it's to do with the way Leopard handles Airport Disks now. It treats the Extreme as just another Mac with network shares. Because Time Machine can't back up to network shares (yet?) they wouldn't have been able to get it working without enabling that functionality.

Still bloody annoying...more so for the stealth updates of the website than anything else. If you can't put something in, come clean and say "Hey guys, not gonna be in at launch but we're working on adding those features in an upcomming update...or they've been canned altogether." Don't do the "What? No we never said it could do that...no really, look at our website" act...that's seriously lame.

Edit: Otherwise, I'm pretty happy. I haven't enabled Time Machine at all yet...I'm going to have to shuffle things around for that to work now. But Back to my Mac seems to work well and sharing data between my Macs has honestly never been easier! The driver update to Boot Camp was also welcome...I can finally use the function keys on my aluminum wireless keyboard!! :)

Most of the things that I was excited about are in Leopard and I'm stoked about that...I'll be even happier if/when they bring the last few things to the party. Over all, it's a solid update over Tiger in some pretty key places for me (mainly sharing between Macs and controlling the iMac while travelling with the Macbook).

Yeah, I'm going to have to leave the club until TM backups over a network share to a non-Leopard Mac are enabled.

I am happy so far with no issues. :) (I will probably have major issues with it now though since I posted this :p)
