    Worth it for Time Machine alone… but there’s lots more reasons to buy, October 26, 2007
    By 
    M and K (Dover, NH) –

    This review is from: Apple Mac OS X Version 10.5.6 Leopard [5-User Family Pack] (DVD-ROM)

    The OS comes in a very small package with a little manual. Install took 45 minutes to confirm that the CD was in good condition, 45 more to install. This review is not going to be full of technical jargon… instead a brief first impression from a long time Mac user (circa 1984 Mac 512Ke vintage). For the technicals, go to Apple, read geeky blogs. For the rest of us, I’ll try to keep it more straight-forward. They claim 300 changes… here are what I think are some of the more interesting ones… apologies for the length of the review, relative to the number of changes claimed, a moderate length to this review. Updated December 09, 2007 to reflect new experiences.

    Pro:
    -Time machine! OK, back up programs are available, but how many of them are sold versus the number of macs out there? This program is native, created by Apple for Apple. All I did was plug in a hard drive and Leopard asked if I wanted to make this my back-up drive for Leopard. I clicked yes, and that was it, all set up. It begins back up once the computer is left on and idle. The first takes a very long time, hours, subsequent back ups are hourly, however only files that have changed are saved, preserving storage space and computing power. Time machine looks like any open folder window when it gets down to it… like you went back in time and browsed around (hence the name). Similar to “snapshot” for those Windows XP users out there.
    -Install was very easy. Boot machine, insert CD, restart with CD. The computer verified that the CD is in good condition (a lengthy process of about 45 minutes that you can skip but which is recommended). The rest of the install takes about 45 more minutes, but it is basically all automated. It’s a Mac, it’s so clever that it’s easy. Apple does what computers promised to do… automate smartly.
    -Price is very reasonable relative to other operating systems (e.g. Vista)
    -This OS includes the release version of Boot Camp. I’ve not used it yet as I have Parallels, but I like how Apple has included this feature… sometimes it’s just best to get along as even programs offered on both platforms are just different enough to be annoying. So if you are using PowerPoint at work on a PC, you can use it at home on your Mac acting like a PC… thank you Apple.
    -The new “you can see the content of folders in the dock bar” feature is handy, especially if you have many projects going and you dump a lot of picture files into them. They call this new feature “stacks” and it works really well.
    -I find that movies too now give you a preview icon which is great.
    -New OS did not trash my preferences, such as my Son’s photo on the desktop… very plug and play
    -Safari web browser is appears somewhat faster, perhaps 1x faster to load a page but I didn’t really notice that much difference as I was using another browser up to this point
    -The widget-maker is really interesting… I made my first widget of a stock I follow, in about 30 seconds. This was really great. I expect future versions of the feature to add more punch (e.g. the ability to add a title bar to your new widget, improved ability to make very small widgets, ability to use arrow keys to get the widget just right, ability to resize the widget once made instead of deleting and starting all over, etc.), but is still great as is.
    -When I have multiple windows open I notice a slight shadow to help me identify which one is active, or on top. Apple continues to impress with their ability to tune into subtle usability features that are so obvious that they have been overlooked. Wonderful (although I would love a darker shadow, and perhaps a bold frame around the window too).
    -The Apple web site offers a very nice 9-10 minute introduction. Check it out, it’s worth it (trust me).
    -Cover Flow is AWESOME! If you are familiar with flipping through album art on the new iPhone or iPods, you’ll recognize the power of this feature right away. For those who’ve been on the sidelines, let me catch you up. There’s icon view. There’s list view. There’s also a column view that’s less popular. And there’s now cover flow. Much like iTunes, you can flip through files like albums in a juke box, or turning pages in a picture book. The Mac lets you see the first page, so you don’t get just a dumb icon, or even a tiny picture, you get a nice big image. It’s nothing short of amazing. Cover flow does more (like you can play a video in cover flow without exiting the program or launching a player, fast and convenient), but again, this is a simpler version for the rest of us.
    -A further extension of file management is Quick Look. You can sort of open files without launching a program. It’s designed to be a time-saver for the person with a lot of files.
    -Spaces. OK, this might be a little hard to describe. Essentially, are you someone who like to have 10 programs running at one time? If…

    Whiz-Bang? Kind of. Refined? Definitely., October 27, 2007
    This review is from: Apple Mac OS X Version 10.5.6 Leopard [5-User Family Pack] (DVD-ROM)

    Each new major release of an operating system (OS) has to make a splash. We all expect to be wowed. We expect and demand that we are shown new whiz-bang features and enhancements. For example, Microsoft’s Vista has lots of whiz-bang features when compared to the steady and stalwart Windows XP. But since Vista’s debut, the afterglow has faded. ANd now, the ‘whiz’ is the sound of people flocking back to XP and the ‘bang’ is the sound of people’s heads hitting their keyboards from the frustration of wrestling with their computer’s operating system.

    Enter Mac OS 10.X:
    10.1 – not a great debut. 10.2 was admittedly undercooked. 10.3 was getting there. And 10.4 finally delivered on the promise of the Mac OS in the modern age.

    So with OS 10.5 – where’s the whiz-bang? Ah, as they say the devil is in the details. 10.5 won’t jump up and clamor for your attention out of the box. It’s new features are to be lauded, but the real benefits here are in the easy way that 10.5 builds on the solid foundation of 10.4 and delivers as the best Mac OS to date.

    I won’t go into massive detail about each new feature, you can just check out the product info or peruse […] for the sales pitch. Suffice to say that the additions and enhancements are indeed very cool. And perhaps more importantly worth the cost of the upgrade.

    Instead of belaboring the fine points of each nook and cranny and application, I am going to touch on how impressed I am with the way that Apple has worked to ensure the continuance of a good thing.

    10.5 is certainly evolutionary. The departure from Tiger is not drastic. But this is a good thing. Unlike the jolt of moving from XP to Vista – the transition from Tiger to Leopard can be best defined as “refined”. At each turn there are subtle enhancements and features that may not trumpet for attention but work to take the “interference” out of using a computer. You can expect Leopard to work as advertised. Simple in its promise, but steadfast in its mission: ‘it just works’.

    During the past couple of years, more and more people have moved to Apple systems for the first time. With more people hopping on board, I’m glad to see that OS 10.5 is a mature refinement to an already fine OS. More than anything, I’m encouraged that this new version allows me and my family to actually use our computers with minimal interference from the OS.

    So where’s the whiz-bang? It’s in getting an easy to learn, easy to use, and as-powerful-as-you-need-it operating system perfect for use in your home.

    On a final note – this review is for the 5-user family pack. It is hard to beat the idea of getting the best OS on the block for $40 a computer. In my case, to upgrade each system averaged out to $67. And there is no strange upgrade path to follow. Each version of leopard is the same. No Leopard home, or business, or ultimate or penultimate. Just leopard. Everything you need, when you need it. No strange add-ons or deluxe editions needed.

    For those interested – I have Leopard running on a 12″ Powerbook G4 (1.25Ghz – And it will run – trust me), a MacBook and a Core2Duo iMac. Leopard is running well on all of these systems. It took about 45mins-1hr per system to upgrade.

    Here’s the upgrade path: Put in the DVD, walk through the the setup menu and wait for your “new” computer to restart.

    Post-upgrade, all of my existing programs work. All of my files are in tact and I’m off and running with 10.5.

    How’s that for Whiz-bang?

    Update-Mixed Blessings (if you currenty use Adobe PS/CS3), February 10, 2008

    This review is from: Apple Mac OS X Version 10.5.6 Leopard [5-User Family Pack] (DVD-ROM)

    A happy ending to a rocky start – At long last and sooner then I had ever expected, on 2-11-2008, Apple released the 10.5.2 update for Leopard. I eagerly downloaded and installed it and was delighted to find that the CS3 issues are resolved and in fact, it seems CS3 PS and Bridge as well as other apps I am using on Leopard seem to load much faster. Some of the other quirks other users have reported like the Mac Mail app hanging or not shutting down (and that I also experienced), now appear to be fixed as well. Finally the stability that I always had in Tiger now seems consistent as well in Leopard. At this time, I’m definitely going to keep my Leopard software rather then return it.

    10.5.2 Info and installation details of the update are here at this Apple link:

    […]

    ————————————————————————-
    We’ve purchased our 3 Macs (Mac Pro, Mac Mini and MacBook) from Amazon and all had Tiger OS X installed. Tiger has been bug free on all of these system s with few updates or fixes ever being needed to be downloaded. I use Photoshop CS3/Mac on my Mac Pro. We just recently decided to give Leopard a go and purchased the 5 system family pack. I chose to use my Mac Pro as the first system for upgrade. Well, unfortunately and only after installing Leopard did I realize there exists some major issues using PS CS3 within the Leopard OS. There is a known issue with most all of the tools in CS3 when using Leopard and a lot of instability when entering numerical values for crop as well as many other CS3 tools. After seeing this and doing some web research, it seems that Adobe and Apple are working on a fix ASAP which will be in the next upcoming update for Leopard (referred to as 10.5.2). In fact I know only too late that Apple plans over 150 “fixes” to the existing bugs in its latest OS with the Photoshop CS3 being only one of them. My rating is less about the new features in Leopard and more due to having taken the plunge into what I thought would be a safe and stable new OS for the MAC only to find that the most often used piece of software I use almost daily, limps badly in the new OS. Shame Apple for releasing Leopard either too soon and perhaps without having fully tested it on some of the most often used software on the Mac, and CS2/CS3 on a Mac should have been a super high priority. We’ll be returning our DVD of Leopard to Amazon and for the meantime, staying with good ol’ stable Tiger until we see what owners are saying about the “fixed” issues, later this year. This is certainly no fault of Amazon’s, but, buyers need to be aware of this issue, especially those who depend on using Adobe and other SW products on their Mac! By the way, all of our Macs were purchased from Amazon since they beat the best price out there and using our Amazon PRIME account, we got our systems either in 2 days with FREE shipping or in one case, overnight for just $3.99. If you routinely shop at Amazon and want free 2 day shipping from Amazon, Go PRIME! They have never failed us yet on an order and we do a lot of shopping there. Well done Amazon!
