    Nope. Need a new Mac first. Whatever I get new should have Leopard installed. I'm gonna have to wait.

      BTW, the first 500 customers at select (or maybe all?) stores get a free T-shirt! I think you have to buy Leopard though.
      Good morning, son
      In twenty years from now
      Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
      And I can tell you 'bout today
      And how I picked you up and everything changed
      It was pain
      Sunny days and rain
      I knew you'd feel the same things...

        Family Pack on pre-order as well; should arrive tomorrow AM. We now have five macs (eight if you count the three hiding in the Closet of Superseded Technology) including my laptop, into which I just installed a brand new hard drive this afternoon. The original lasted about four years, so I can't complain too much.

        But oh the joy of all those little tiny Phillips screws... :sweat:

          Went to the Apple store in Sacramento last night and picked up my copy of Leopard. Got my free shirt too. They were giving them out as you enter the store, even if you were just browsing.

            I work for Apple so i got my NFR on Thursday and put it on my Powerbook. I usually wait, but i had a training class to brush up for the next day. I like it, it's better than Tiger, but it's not the holy grail Jobs hyped it to be. Time Machine and Spaces are gravy though!

                Just a heads up for those of you who are doing the upgrade.

                From Eweek:

                Leopard Has More Holes Than Spots

                Security has slipped backwards on the evolutionary ladder in Apple's latest Mac OS X release, security researchers say, with Leopard's firewall having more holes than its namesake cat has spots.

                "The short answer is the Leopard firewall is ... ugly and a step backwards from 10.4," said Rich Mogull, an independent security consultant and founder of Securosis LLC.

                The first security hole is that Leopard's firewall turns itself off by default on installation—even if a user had the firewall turned on before upgrading. That choice flies in the face of what Microsoft has done with Vista, for example: harden security by shipping the operating system with security measures on by default. Security researchers are also chagrined that Leopard only allows a choice between allow all, deny all, or pick by application; and that it completely hides the firewall rules in a black box that isn't user accessible, Mogull told eWEEK. Even worse, a security researcher from Heise Security has found that the configuration of "block all" does anything but that—meaning that the firewall essentially can't be trusted.

                Another issue with Leopard is that, although the newest Mac operating system still includes the open-source firewall ipfw, it needs to be manually configured at the command line.
