Mac OS X "Leopard started out with a generous share of first-version glitches, but almost all of them have now been resolved by the second of two automated updates, which brings Leopard up to version 10.5.2. Finally, Leopard is extravagantly overdressed for the jobs that it's designed to do, and its pervasive eye-candy starts out looking dazzling but soon becomes distracting. Fortunately, from the beginning, the OS started out with options that let you put it on a low-eye-sugar diet, and the latest update has even more."

Leopard has been great for me on a Powerbook G4 12".

This review does seem to take a pretty good stock of Leopard's strengths and weaknesses. Apple did make some right moves with 10.5.2. Some of the areas he highlights as improvements can still be sticky areas for some users, especially networking with Windows. It's always been hit or miss.

Some of the features of Leopard were not a big deal to me at first - like QuickLook - but have become more interesting as I have begun to use them. I am also going to have start taking advantage of the smart searches feature.

I guess the next question will be - what else does Apple have planned for the rest of Leopard development? Where do they go next? It will be interesting to see.
