OS X Leopard

by Dave Weller

So, I upgraded to Mac OS X Leopard over the weekend. It took about 45 minutes. I didn’t run in to any problems. I have a 2.66 GHz. Quad-Core Mac Pro with three internal hard drives. One contains Leopard, the second, Windows Vista Ultimate, and the third is a shared drive containing music, photos and other stuff that is accessible from both OS X and Vista. I’m running Boot Camp and VMware Fusion, and both upgraded just fine.

I haven’t had a lot of time to spend playing with it yet, but I really like the new Quick Look feature. I can preview all kinds of files, such as PDFs, images, movies, and Microsoft Word and Excel files, without actually launching the applications. It’s going to save a ton of time searching for something in all my family history files!
