Quick Update

Well, I spent a lot of time last week trying to manage the new installation of Leopard and leverage it with my workflow. I’ve had some issues with Parallels and its handling of 16-bit legacy applications, as well as having to deal with a total crash of my media drive (don’t worry folks, we had a backup).

So far, Leopard does a lot of things very well. I’ll write more in a few days to detail my experiences with it as a whole and relating specifically to my workflow.

And, on a slightly different note, I got an iPod Touch as an early Christmas present (thanks babe)!

  1. Have you had any speed issues since you switched to Leopard? Both of my computers seem significantly slower at startup, and a little slower in running since I installed Leopard….

    Maybe I just need more RAM.

  2. I did upgrade my RAM as part of Leopard (I’m running 3GB now; the max for my iMac). Are you running PowerPC or Intel?

    My startup time has actually improved, although my overall system performance seems to be just a bit slower than I remember in Tiger (this could also be a problem with VMWare and especially Parallels not running as well in Leopard).

    I’ve been contemplating a full re-install of Leopard on a wiped drive in order to knock out any Tiger-related bloat from before …

  3. I may have to add more ram. I’m on an Intel machine, a macbook pro…

    Parallels seems to be an issue for me too
