Look at the MacInTouch page today and you see a long list of problems people are having with the new Mac OS X 10.5 “Leopard” operating system. Yike…

We bought the “family pack” last week. I installed the OS on one Mac — a Mini that was new earlier in the fall — with no issues, because it basically had nothing that could cause trouble.

But I’m waiting at least until 10.5.1 before I do the upgrade. Apple does good work, but I never, ever buy its new hardware in the initial version, and the same principle applies to operating systems (Windows is the same; always wait for the first service pack on a new Windows version before giving it a try).

Looking forward to the update, and then trying Leopard…
