    It rocks. It feels faster than Tiger on latest 24" 2.4 iMac.

    OK what are the major differences? Is there a learning curve similar to the switch from 9 to 10?

    Nah. There are just a lot of new features that make things easier that you can pick up on.

    Whenever Mr. Pogue gets around to releasing it, pick up his [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Mac-OS-Leopard-Missing-Manual/dp/059652952X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/104-0505885-7439919?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1193527428&sr=8-1"]Mac OS X Leopard: The Missing Manual[/ame]





    His Missing Manuals are fantastic! They show you the NEW alternatives to tasks you did before the latest version, as well as brand new features. It's a great reference book to have around.

    One gripe is the dock. There are little blue lights beneath applications when they're being used, and they're difficult to see if you have a light wallpaper.

    I agree with Unfiltered; the Pogue books are great. I thoroughly enjoyed his Tiger book, so I'm sure the new book will be just as helpful.

    I'm going to try this later.

    EDIT: It didn't work for me. Still searching.

    I tried this app Dock Delight, and it works.

    % defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES
    % killall Dock

    I wrote that in terminal (sans %) and it is improved. It has a solid dot instead of a 3d dot.

    With Spaces, can you tell it to put certain applications on all work spaces no matter which one you switch to?
