Bah, 10.5 just blows.

Ok, I’m clearly not the only person who is having problems with Leopard. But I have to say this is the worst Mac OS upgrade I’ve been through. Everything from random messages filling up the system logs (in at least two variations), to incompatibilities, to things that are just plain busted (e.g. neither BtmM nor … Continue reading “Bah, 10.5 just blows.”

I really can’t keep wasting this much time on something that isn’t adding significant value. If things don’t stabilize soon, I’m going to have to downgrade to 10.4 again. And if you want to talk about something that would dissipate the Reality Distortion Field, boy, that would be it.

Aside: On my MBP I did a straight upgrade, but I did a complete HD wipe and re-install on the server. Neither one is working well.

  1. Since I was also Done in by Leopard I feel your pain friend. My mail is screwed, mapping to my ESB drives is screwed, I can’t connect to IBM’s wireless anymore, every once in a while a PhantOSX (what I’m calling Phantom OS X weirdness) steals my mouse. Lots of things like that. I don’t want to downgrade though, I’m just spent.
