Mac OS X Leopard

Sunday, 28 Oct 2007 | Apple, Computers, Macintosh


On Friday, I waited anxiously in line with other Mac enthusiasts at the Apple Store Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga for the release of Mac OS X Leopard. It was scheduled to go on sale at 6 pm. I arrived at 4:15 pm and although there was a line, it wasn't too long at that time. While we waited, Apple Store employees gave out free bottled water to help make the wait go a little easier.

They let customers into the store in groups of 10 to 15 at 6 pm. As we walked in, I was handed an Apple Mac OS X Leopard t-shirt and a group of Apple Store employees lined up on both sides of the group applauded as we walked by. By 6:15 pm I had my t-shirt and Mac OS X Leopard Family Pack in hand and exited the store.

Friday night, I installed Leopard on my Mac Pro, Toni's PowerBook Pro and Erin's MacBook without a hitch. All of our computers feel quicker and more responsive with Mac OS 10.5, but I noticed the most improvement on my Mac Pro. It just feels like it's taking better advantage of the hardware now. Overall, my programs have transitioned very well to the new Macintosh operating system. There were some programs that needed updating for optimal Leopard compatibility. I saw a few glitches in some applications, but nothing that was a show stopper. I am very pleased with the update and am sure I will enjoy it even more as application updates and OS revisions appear.
