Yes, HDD usage slows down the machine sensibly
It needs to take backups, and that slows down your mac a tiny bit i find.
That's odd, mine doesn't - it creates a ComputerName.backupdb in the Backup Drive only.
And the fact it puts Volumes.backupdb or whatever folder on all Volumes, even the ones you opt-out of is so annoying.
Mine took much longer - 10-15 minutes at least.
Also, a very nice improvement is that Leopard takes about 3 minutes to install. Literally. I'm not sure if this is just a developer preview thing or what, but it's nice.
Yeah, that's nice - but you can be sure lots people will find it annoying...
Another new thing is when you are installing something, at the end it makes a little 'ding ding ding' sound like iTunes does when your converting songs for example.
Lucky you, but now RS won't let you download for the next 567hours I think
I actually got this off Rapidshare, no torrenting involved
