Mac OS X Three reviews of Mac OS X Leopard, to be released coming Friday. David Pogue writes: "Leopard is powerful, polished and carefully conceived. Happy surprises, and very few disappointments, lie around every corner. This Leopard has more than 300 new spots - and most of them are bright ones." Walt Mossberg concludes: "Leopard isn't a must-have for current Mac owners, but it adds a lot of value. For new Mac buyers, it makes switching even more attractive." Edward C. Baig of USA Today writes: "With Leopard, Apple's operating system widens its lead aesthetically and technologically. Whether the sixth major release of OS X in as many years puts a dent in Microsoft's dominant market share is another matter entirely." Thanks to MacWereld.nl [Dutch] for pointing these reviews out.

Slower much slower

Sorry to say guys im running the 581 build and unfortunately its slower than 10.4.10 ... alot .. especially safari and finder... but finder is only really slow when your dealing with the coverflow view....

safari has already semi-frozen 5 times even on just opening to google.com my homepage it goes all white and sits their for like 2 minutes then comes back.

Also the dock is noticibly slower at times with the scaling, yes the OS in general is much nicer and theirs little new features... but the whole hype from apple and their "300 new features" is the same as when microsoft claims "500 new features" or whatever it was for vista... the fact is they nitpick alot of behind the scene changes but in reality i've seen little in change from 10.4 to 10.5 visually... its a bit darker the dock has the shelf woohoo, and they added coverflow everywhere.

And since coverflow isnt exactly a system seller i'd say its more a really good service pack than a major iteration. At least to me
