Mac OS X "This is something I never thought I'd hear myself say - or maybe I should say, see myself type - about an Apple operating system: Mac OSX Leopard was released before it was ready. This operating system needed more testing on more systems with more hardware, and especially, more software configurations. The days of Apple computers operating with just the Mac OS and Adobe Photoshop installed, and practically nothing else to speak of, are long gone, and Apple knows this as well as anyone. This operating system was not properly beta tested, and Apple's customers are paying for it, with lost productivity and inoperative computers."

10.5 installed fine on all the macbook Pro's at the office.

Installed fine on the macbook at home.

Installed fine on an G4 Powebook.

Refused to install at all on a G5 PowerMac. I kept getting an error during installation. I had to connect the G5 to the Powerbook and install the OS via the Powerbook using Firewire mode. Which worked fine.

Since then everything has been great. Well worth the upgrade. all that said, I don't remember this many issues surfacing on the web with past os X upgrades. But, that could also be because its getting more coverage these days. (??)
