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."

I've probably used every single update since 10.0 . And its been a continuos improvement process.

People sometimes talk about the lack of "real" new features between major releases. But the fact is when you use the latest version you really feel the drag of going back to an earlier version. All the major upgrades are jam packed with tiny minute improvements throughout the system that make the real difference.

Like the author said 10.5.2 solved some issues I had with leopard. That default stack view for folders in the Dock was a royal pain the ... neck.
