Mac OS X Leopard

I’ve finally upgraded the Mac to OS X Leopard.  I have to say that I’m really enjoying it so far.  As far as functions are concerned it’s really no different than OS X Tiger, but visually it’s gorgeous.  The new dock blows my mind, the speed has also increased.  I didn’t lose anything during the upgrade, which is a plus, but I’m noticing that programs are also loading a lot quicker than they were in the past.  I don’t know if Leopard has anything to do with that but it seems to be working that way for me so I’ll happily take the upgrade.  Usage right now, with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash and a few other programs running is only at 10% and for 1GB of ram, that’s pretty damn amazing for me.  I do intend to upgrade the RAM at some point in the future but we’ll see how job situations go before I make an investment like that.  Something tells me I’m going to have to get used to using Windows again, but that’s not that hard – it’s definitely the crappier operating system.

So who else runs on Leopard?  Any tips or tricks for me?  I’d really appreciate it!
