    OSX Updates! 

    Finally, the long awaited Leopard update is here, bringing the current Mac OSX version number to 10.5.2. Hopefully, a lot of annoyances of one of the worst OSX releases will have been fixed.

    It’s still too early to tell, I just upgraded a few minutes ago. First impressions are not bad, but I’m not seeing a lot of difference either.

    Other good news from the update front: only a few days or so ago, Shirt Pocket released their Leopard compatible update of SuperDuper! (see also my post on “Forced Features” in OSX).

    Feeling much more secure to upgrade OSX on a fully backed-up system, so reverting is as easy as attaching my external USB drive. I’m a happy camper now, let’s see the coming days…

    Forced features 

    SuperDuper!A few months after its release, I finally upgraded trusted old Mac OSX from Tiger to Leopard. It was a smooth experience and in general I like the new features, specially the performance improvement of the Finder and Spotlight.

    But the there is that negative experience with Time Machine.

    No, I haven’t even used it (yet), but the way Apple put this new feature in front of every user’s face, has forced the makers of SuperDuper to find a way of co-existence. Which they have not found yet (read Slowest! Update! Ever!). 

    What to do? Switch to Time Machine?
    I’m reluctant to do so, because I liked the pure simplicity of SuperDuper so much: always have an up to date backup system, from which you can boot your system and continue your work within minutes if the worst case crash scenario happens.

    For now, Im undecided – hopefully my system will not crash in the mean time![ratings]
