From Tiger to Leopard

Well, I finally bit the bullet and got Leopard at home (on a mac mini).    So far, the transition from Tiger has been relatively painless. 
Here's a breakdown of the highs/lows for me compared to Tiger:
  • Spotlight performance: +1;  (usable!)
  • General OS responsiveness:  +1;
  • Safari Speed: +1;
  • Safari Reliability: -1; (has crashed on two different web sites for me so far! -- guess I'll go back to my camino/firefox combo)
  • Quicklook: +1;
  • Dock improvements (grids and fans):  +1;  
  • Time machine: ?; I set it up, but for me the jury is out on any backup software until I actually need to restore something.
  • Haven't found any major app incompatibilities yet.
