It's good but it's SO glitchy! Looks like a rushed release by Apple... I really hope Apple sorts out these issues.

I'm somewhat happy. There is a lot to like, but it does feel rushed (even though Apple had two years) and glitchy here and there. I would probably give it a B.

As many have stated. "Leopard is evolution not revolution" And I agree. I vote B+.

I think that sums it up. I haven't been using OS X that long, but one could almost say that it's a super Tiger plus pack. It's definitely better than Vista. I say B+.

Yeh I totally agree, OS X has come a long way from 10.0 Very Happy Getting better and better, Panther and Tiger were great, lets hope Leopard can join their status too!

And! Anything is better than Vista, even? Dare I say? OS 9? Laughing Wow that was fun to use Very Happy

So far I like it and the new effects are snazzy. I like the speed improvement, too. But there are some interface trade-offs I'm less sure about. I don't care for the translucent menubar, and I miss the opportunity to be able to click on a folder in the Dock and get a hierarchical menu. Finally, I don't like what the Dock does to folders placed in it, changing the appearance of the folder to the first document in it and others behind it.

I wish there was an option in System Preferences to turn off the translucent menubar.

I don't care for that either. I wish there was a way to pick a default image.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with Leopard. It seems to be off to a nice start.

My score:

I don't have Leopard yet, but I don't like the menu bar either.
Oh well. Candybar and numerous others should take care of the visual aspects.

My sentiments exactly...I"m sure in time you'll be able to change pretty much anything you like, like you can in Tiger...

My 2 cents...

I'll keep an open mind on the visual elements of Leopard. I remember when Apple changed the iTunes logo from green to blue. At first I didn't like it, now I think it looks much better than the green. Go figure Smile

I would be "extremely happy" if I could just get my HP Deskjet F340 AIO printer to work. Everything else is awesome!

No not yet, and I can't even offer you one.
I downloaded it myself, installed it, followed all the instructions, and nada, nothing changed, still transparent bar.
So as of now it is gone, history, whatever.
