I bought my mum her first Mac for Xmas, and while 'selling it hard' to my dear mother she wasn't too impressed that 10.5.2 completely broke printer support. It took around 2 weeks for a minor update to come down the line.

And now I just heard 10.5.3 brakes Diablo 2, probably among other applications.

I suggest people don't "install" the update for at least a couple of weeks until all the known critical bugs in the update are well understood.

My 2 cents!

It's always a good idea to wait, unless you've been waiting for some things to be fixed, of course.

It seems odd that Blizzard games are always in the middle of the fixes. Everything else I've played seems fine. Other third party software seems okay, but then, I had to upgrade a lot because they would not run with Leopard.
