If you have or access to an Intel and PowerPC based Macintosh, which one is giving you more grief? I shouldn't of added G3 to the list.


Tell us your system you have or tried to put Leopard on and what problems you been running into.

Haven't installed it on a PPC G4 machine.  With an x86 mac (MBP), all seems cool, except for the gliches (in 10.4.7 and still present in 10.5) and bugs in Quartz 2D Extreme when using rosetta-emulated apps.  Q2DX is still disabled by default, so it's obviously still f***ed up.  There are two additional bugs that I have encountered: (1) a memory leak in Safari 3.0, which causes the browser to stall and suck up a lot of CPU and RAM on certain websites and (2) certain x86 apps that specifically check for Mac OS 10.4.4+ seem to just die during initialization, the apps usually work perfectly in forced rosetta-mode (e.g. transmission), despite the performance cost.
