Now running Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard

Back in October I explained why waiting to switch to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard would be a good idea. With at least two updates (it’s now at 10.5.2), Leopard looks reasonably stable.

So after first installing and running Leopard on my MacBook Pro for a few days, I was satisfied that things worked reasonably well. And with Nikon finally fixing Capture NX for Leopard in early January, I decided to take the plunge with my “production” Mac Pro. So far, the following are working fine:

  • Photoshop CS3
  • Dreamweaver CS3
  • Apple Mail upgraded perfectly, mailboxes intact (but SpamSieve needed to be turned back on)
  • printing to Epson 3800 (but Epson’s new “public beta” printer drivers are needed)
  • Microsoft Excel 2004 (launches really slowly however), Word 2004
  • Canon Digital Photo Professional 3.2.0.6
  • TextWrangler 2.3

I’ll post any issues as I encounter them. But at least for now, it looks like Leopard is safe for use.
