My first wave of tests with Leopard is complete, and so far things have proven pretty successful, with one unhappy exception.
The following apps work fine, according to my initial set of tests. I did not do any heavy-duty operations with each program, but the basics seem to work. All versions tested were the latest, downloaded from the vendor’s site, unless otherwise noted:
Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0
Amadeus II
AppleWorks 6.2.9
Camino
Cisco VPN Client 4.9.01.0080
Cocktail
Disk Inventory X
Firefox
MT-Newswatcher
Parallels Desktop
Samsung ML-2510 Printer Drivers
Quicken 2006
Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection 1.0.3
ViewIt
VLC
All that said, a couple items of note:
SuperDuper, one of my show-stopper apps, could not produce a bootable copy of my hard drive. This alone drives my decision to wait to upgrade. I may buy an additional external drive to use Leopard’s TimeMachine feature, but I also like the idea of having a bootable copy of my internal drive. Once there’s a Leopard-compatible version of SuperDuper, I will upgrade.
CoconutBattery, a little utility that tells you the charge cycle count and overall health of your notebook battery, reports an incorrect cycle count under Leopard. It reported that my battery was charged and discharged 4 times, which is inaccurate.
Lisa decided to dive right in and go for the in-place upgrade from Tiger to Leopard on her iBook G4. The upgrade went fine, and she has no problems to report right now. No guts, no glory. :-) TThe only thing is that I’ll need to come up with an interim backup strategy for her computer while I await SuperDuper’s upgrade.
Stay tuned. More to come.
