Add a new Mac to your Mac. Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard is packed with over 300 new features, installs easily, and works with the software and accessories you already have.
Mac OS X v.10.5 Leopard is the newest release of Apple's innovative, stable and compatible operating system for Macintosh computers. This new release includes an elegant new interface and over 300 new innovations designed to help customers accomplish any task. Improvements have been included for all your favorite Mac programs like iChat and Mail, as well as all-new features such as Quick Look, which lets you peruse the contents of a multiple-page document or video without opening the whole file, and Time Machine, which can recover files in seconds. OS X 10.5 has all this, as well as the exceptional search technology, stunning graphics, rapid connectivity and solid stability you've come to expect from the OSX family of operating systems. This edition extends the license for use by up to five different users in the same home network. Time Machine lets you keep an up-to-date copy of all important files and, since it can recall how the system looks every day, it can recover files in seconds. iChat now lets you present movies, presentations and virtually any document during your chtas with iChat Theater. You can even save your audio and video chats for sharing or synching with an iPod to play on the go. Communicate with 30 professionally designed stationary template, keep important notes and track to-do items in Mail You can now group applications into Spaces and move between each Space with keyboard shortcuts to organize your windows and reduce clutter

Summary: Ms. Swenson
Comment: I like the Leopard, and I have shared it with family members who also have a MAC. They agree that it is easy to use. The only thing I had to do...that I'm aware of ... is update RealPlayer. But that was very easy. This has some interesting ways of reminding me of things, and there are still some things I can't find. But I'm a slow learner, and I have to get with my "tutor" to be able to upgrade my brain. But so far, I have not found anything I don't like about it.

Summary: Prompt and perfect OS X!
Comment: Much needed OS X update works beautifully on my "ancient" G4 Mac. Thank you for being so prompt!

Summary: A Disaster for "Power-PC" Macs.
Comment: This OS is nice and well enough designed for Intel processor machines, but for "Power-PC" processor Macs, it's a debacle. I have one of the last of the G5 iMacs (20") and it never crashed at all with Mac OS 10.4. But with 10.5, IT WILL CRASH EVERY SINGLE TIME I use iTunes. Sometimes it crashes when I'm using iTunes, and sometimes it will crash after I use that program and quit the application. It doesn't seem to matter what I do. And yes, this is a legal, registered version of the OS. And yes, I have re-installed it twice, all to no effect. Apple has some serious work to do to make this latest OS viable for their not-too-distant machines. I hear they are completely giving up on their G-Series machines with OS 10.6, so if you have 10.4, hold on to it and don't let go. Until Apple figures it out (IF they even try), users should avoid this OS.

Thanks for reading,
-CL

Summary: Don't Buy Family Pack
Comment: Only ONE single DVD install disc comes in the family pack (for 5 users). You cannot create duplicate install discs for each user - any copies created look/verify as perfect but are not bootable, so cannot be used for emergencies. Not good a good buy for families with busy, independent teens who need their own install disc!

Summary: Good follow-up to Tiger
Comment: Network-based spotlight, simpler and better automound + sharing, and built-in spaces make this a worth-while update. I made the full jump with an intel book and Tiger and haven't looked back.
