  1. Leo, I think you guys underestimated Leopard on MacBreak Weekly. From what I’ve read, Leopard is much faster than Tiger on Intel machines. I’m not certain about PowerPC Macs, though.
    Have fun!

  2. I am currently having SuperDuper! do a full backup of my Mac, while I also do DVD backups of iTunes, iPhoto, etc. (what can I say, I am paranoid).
    Tomorrow night when I get home from work, Leopard should be waiting on my doorstep ready for installation 🙂
    Let us know how you like it Leo.

  3. I have two questions Leo:
    1. If you upgraded from Tiger, how simple was the upgrade to Leopard?
    2. Will my Firefox Bookmarks and passwords be retained in Leopard after an upgrade?

  4. I used the seed of Leo-pard it has good features. Not 300 like people mite think. I will be in line in 20 hrs for mine and my teeshirt. 🙂 Since I have a Macbook with only a 13″ screen Spaces will be the killer feature for me. 6-8 different spaces. for my work. (Web Engineer) Can’t wait to hear Leo’s likes and dislikes with his version of Leo-Pard

  5. Love all your stuff Leo! Love to upgrade to Leopard too but I think I might wait. I depend on Apple’s Pro Apps like Final Cut Studio etc…. and I am worried about bugs with those apps on the new OS. Let us know if you run into any such bugs. Thanks

  8. Hi Leo, I have one question about Time Machine – can I hook 2 or more drives up (say a USB and two daisy-chained FW800) and then Time Machine utilizes the space across the 3 drives? I have almost 1 TB of media and I don’t feel like having to buy a 2TB drive and dump the other drives I have…

  9. Two machines down, one to go. What a fantastic upgrade experience. Small problems with SuperDuper not being fully compatible with Leopard and for some reason SpamSieve has been disabled. I’m sure things will work out.
    The thought and stories of Vista meant I made the switch to Mac about six months ago. I’m delighted to have.
    Michael, all my email and Bookmarks came across.

  10. I’ve got Leopard pre-ordered, as of right now at 7:00AM, it’s near my house at the Fed-Ex place. However looking at the Apple site, they have removed a couple things. The feature to sync notes with Mail and the iPhone is no longer listed. And I haven’t confirmed this but I read the same about using an external disk over airport. So if two features are gone, I’m wondering if they saving those for later, if it’s just a mistake or if they have been removed because they don’t work. Makes one question…

  11. Well anyone is trying out new software, I just found an amazing Firefox/Safari add on. It takes images in RSS feeds (from Facebook, Google Images, etc) and allows you to open them as a sideshow. Also has a great design! http://www.piclens.com/ They also make Cooliris Preview.
    Doing a great job keeping on top of the technology ages. Waiting for the full review of Leopard.

  13. I bought Leopard only on the rumor month ago that it would be faster on Mac Intel. So I was a bit sadden to not have heard anything about that on Mac Weekly in the last month. I’m hoping I was wasn’t mistaken.
    I feel my iMac Core Duo is more sluggish than it should be. It feels faster under windows.

  14. I’m looking forward to Leopard on both my G5 desktop and my Macbook, however I’m waiting at least two months before I do anything major. Also, I wouldn’t recommend ANYONE upgrade. It may work fine for you, but with so many changed files just bite the bullet and do a reinstall; you’ll probably save yourself some headache.

  16. About 15 mins to go to finish installing the new ‘Cat’ on my old G5. If all goes well, my newer MacBook will be next. See you on the ‘other side’…

  17. Hi Leo!
    Quick ? for you — what happened to the iTunes Podcast of TWiT #119? Got it downloaded from TWiT.TV but I cannot for the life of me get it into the Podcast section of iTunes… not a deal killer, but how would one do that?
    Running Leopard here on an iMac mini 1.5Ghz Single Core with 2GB of RAM… must say it’s definitely faster that Tiger!
    Love the shows and missed it this morning when I did a refresh of the Podcast directories in iTunes.
    Thanks!

  18. Looks like there was a slight hold-up with the iTunes Podcast section of the store. Episode #119 was finally listed and downloaded. It showed up just before 10 PM here on the east coast.

  19. I installed Leopard on Friday on my intel aluminum imac and macbook. Awesome features, and I was completely surprised that it works faster than Tiger. I highly recommend Leopard for anyone with a mac.
