    Yay for 10.5.1. Please put the firewall back in Sharing where it belongs.

    I do hope they fix the DVD Player in Leopard soon.

    It blocks and refuses to play disks properly. It cannot find the subtitles to show, and when you try to open features the pulldown window blocks with a turning fire ball and leaves you no option but to pull the plug and start from scratch.

    I wonder if it is my problem or Apple's.

    Get it out quickly now and work on 10.5.2 for macworld ?? maybe ?? BOOM etc.

    "About 5 percent of all users were running Safari while accessing the sites, indicating that most Mac users are not using Firefox or other alternate browsers."



    The above line is whack. Shouldn't it say, "About 5 percent of all users were not running Safari..."

    now i can go get a cup of water, scratch my butt, crack my back, sit back down and it'll still be at the default aurora background..



    I shaved about 2 seconds off my boot time with Leopard, but my keychain is still broken (which didn't happen while using the developer builds). It's quite annoying and makes me want to go back to the latest developer build.

    Why? Apple has grown considerably, getting 2.5M Intel units out in the last quarter when Apple was sometimes lucky to push out 1M PPC units out in a quarter.

    I don't know about anyone else, but Firefox runs horridly slow on my MacBook... I prefer Safari more anyway. But this is off-topic, and i apologize for any grief this has caused anyone. \



    I haven't had any slowness problems, but 2.0.0.8 and newer seem to have a caching problem. After about two day's use, the program needs to be terminated and restarted to work again.

    I don't think "all users" means "all Mac users" but rather, "all Web users".

    Thank you. That does make more sense.

    I wonder if it does. I just realized that the statement doesn't consider the Windows users are running Safari, but maybe they are negligible in numbers.

    I'd love to use Safari on my work laptop if it's performance can catch up to the mac version. As it is now, it's horribly unstable, very slow, and VERY buggy. Needs ALOT of work still to be fully useable.

    When I had my 4 different PowerPC machines, it ran crap on all of them. On Tiger (on Intel) I ran Camino 1.5.x, and it was awesome, 1.5.3 has come a long way since I last ran it (recent Mac -> Windows -> Mac person, last time I used it was 0.9.x days).



    Mind you, Safari 3.x has basically improved in all the areas where I had problems, Blogger/Gmail are now supported properly, I no longer need Camino.

    True. I still see the occasional PowerBook, Trademe is chocked to the brim with people trying to off load their old iBooks and PowerBooks. I'm tempted to purchase an PowerBook for my brother, who is a university student (like me) for his Christmas present. Pick up a pretty decent one these days for around NZ$300-NZ$400

    Great to have Eve ONline for teh Mac.



    A game born for the Mac. I hope Cryptic use the Cider engine to port City of Heroes as well.



    Not that I can't use Boot Camp...but a native version is nice...

    I would be very surprised not to see 10.5.2 by MWSF. I expect 10.5.2 to provide support for any new hardware announced at MWSF. 10.5.1 will probably be limited to the most urgent and easy to verify fixes with a release by the end of November.

    I don't know about .Mac as I've not got it but they've finally reconnected the sync menu bar icon with iSync again like it used to work in 10.3. Perfect syncing with my two phones (SE T610 and SE P910i) again without having to find iSync first.

    It probably just allows you to add a personalized name to the virtual desktop-type (e.g.: gaming, personal, work). This would be seen when you use the default Control+Arrow Keys or Menu Bar options to change your Space instead of seeing just a number of the virtual desktop.
