jb, same thing here. No change in the menu bar, and I followed their instructions.

Did you guys try changing your desktop image at least once? That is what it takes to enable it.

Overall, pretty nice. Seems to run smoothly. Maybe an A--. I have to say that I will never us Time Machine, which was probably their biggest innovation in the OS.
Also, anyone else having a problem with GIMP? I can't seem to get it to run without opening X11 first, and even then, it is glitchy. I crashed continuously when I tried to edit an image imported from my scanner. And, yes, I am running Release Candidate 2.4, which is said to work.

I'm actually a little disappointed with Leopard. Perhaps my expectations were too high. I just installed it last night though. I probably need more time to find the small stuff. Of the "big" features, QuickLook, Time Machine, Front Row and Mail are doing the most for me. I'm also having some real fun with PhotoBooth.

When do you think Apple will start making updates for Leopard?

I think it took just over two weeks for the first Tiger update. I wouldn't be surprised to see one in the same time frame, if not sooner.

I hate to sound like a McDonalds commercial, but I'm lovin' it. Leopard is the most beautiful OS ever. I haven't noticed that many glitches either (at least with the stuff that I'm using). I initially had some trouble setting up my HP printer after a clean installation, but I soon realized that I wasn't using a Universal driver.

I'm happy with it. Aside from a few hiccups in the install, it's been great. I have used TimeMachine to back up my HD and will use it but manually. I don't need a backup of every hour. Spaces is cool, my wife, the graphc designer, will be using that on the MacPro with the 30"

I am mostly happy. It might be my imagination but it seems quicker than tiger.
Once Adobe (or Apple) have found out why leopard breaks indesign I will be completely happy!

Reread my post, especially the part where I say "and followed all the instructions"

Right now it's certainly not going to be great because it's fundamentally a beat version. Wait a month or two, Apple will release updates. And of course it's better than Vista. Tiger was better than Vista, and in my opinion Windows XP was better than Vista.

Doesn't feel like a beta to me. In fact, other than a few minor issues, a few minor things I'm getting used to, I'm quite impressed on how well Leopard came out.

Windows ME might even be better than Vista. Wink

Do you want to know what the real difference is between OS X (Tiger or Leopard) and Vista? Apple only shows you the stuff that you need to see. Microsoft tries to show you everything all at once in Vista. It is confusing and messy. Vista also looks like it was hit with the ugly stick one too many times.

I really like Leopard so far. It has lived up to most, if not all, of my expectations. The bugs that exist should be fixed in the next few updates. I haven't noticed anything really major though. They also did a really nice job of optimizing performance. Leopard feels a lot snappier than Tiger.

My score so far: A-
