    Default Will you upgrade to Leopard?

    Will you be upgrading to OS X Leopard when it's released?

    Is there enough in it to entice you to splash the cash?

    it's sooo cheap to upgrade [if it's priced anywhere like last time], it seems silly not to*.. might wait a bit to see if any wrinkles need to be ironed out though..

    and yes, i'll be getting the Ultimate edition..



    *well, not silly, my wife is still on 10.3 and happy not to change.. but for me i like to see what's new and improved..

    Quick Look is the selling point for me. I can see that forming the frontend of my image library.

    Stacks are a pretty cool idea. Handy for projects.

    Might sound silly, but I'm seriously considering the enterprise edition, if I go crazy and decide to go all out ultimate may suit.

    I guess from the reactions so far that no-one wants to be the only kid in the street without an ice-cream. [Flashes of Eddie Murphy]

    Ha, I spend more time with older MacOSes (6.0.2, 8.6), hell I've not bothered to move to 10.4 ... nothing there I need, the same applies with 10.5.

    (That makes me the second 'no' vote )

    I would like to, but I'm not sure how it'd run on my DP500MHz G4 (Tiger currently runs beautifully, though I do have 1.5gb RAM, a SATA RAID, better video card etc...)

    Would probably buy a headless iMac tower if Apple brought one out (ie: power of an iMac, in a tower form-factor), but until then, good old "Tank" will do me nicely.

    The new finder is a major selling point for me. Spaces will be useful.

    Time machine would be great on a Mac used as a file server .... I wonder if there will also be a command line interface to time machine. The time machine blurb doesn't provide any info on this sort of interface.

    I was completely underwhelmed by Jobs' keynote the other day. If they were the 10 best features then they've truly run out of ideas. I'd expect that perhaps they want to keep under wraps some of the top features, but to present those shown at 10 of the best left me wanting more.

    I found Stacks within the dock a good feature, especially for things like applications where we have a trillion!

    I am not impressed, however, by the pseudo 3d dock and its reflective surface. What did this add. I am also not impressed by the Finder iTunes-like new view, seriously what use is this? I think Timeline is a cool feature, but I hate that they've gone tacky and done the whole space scene behind - looks so amateurish.

    I had thought before this they'd perhaps make this release an Mac OS X 11.0, I now think 10.5 is appropriate.

    One final thing, totally loved Jobs' piss take of the Vista versions and that each version of Mac OS Leopard will be US$129. haha.

    i dunno, i was sitting there thinking 'wow' at most of those features, cover flow looks amazing.

    so does time machine for that matter...but sometimes i think apple goes overboard with the flashy graphics.

    will i upgrade to leopard? only if i can get a macbook for under a grand (fire sale, im looking at you) by the time its released
