AppleInsider has started another series of articles on Apples latest operating system "Leopard - OS10.5".

This series follows on from the previous "The Road To Leopard Series" (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/showthread.php?t=38186&highlight=road+to) for which "andrew.wilson" has done a forum on already.

The purpose of the following series of articles is to:

"Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard has two audiences: those who already own a Mac and are interested in upgrading their experience, and new buyers investigating a Mac purchase. This review series is designed primarily toward Mac users looking to upgrade but includes notes of interest to new Mac buyers as well. This segment provides a 2-page introduction to Leopard's overall features and an introduction of the desktop, with real world usage notes about its peculiarities so you can decide if Leopard (and the Mac) is right for you."

I will try to add to this list of articles as they become available.

Developer Tools (http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/07/11/01/an_introductory_mac_os_x_leopard_review_developer_ tools.html)

Present & Future Value (http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/07/11/02/an_introductory_mac_os_x_leopard_review_presentfut ure_value.html)


As I will soon be switching to Mac after twenty odd years of PC's, AppleInsider's two series of articles have been of great interest to me and I am sure will make the transition that much easier and more joyful.
