La mia parte razionale mi chiedeva di attendere qualche giorno per aspettare i feedback in rete prima di aggiornare il sistema operativo alla veriosione 10.5, ma come resistere? Anche se sono entusiasta di Leopard, soprattutto delle nuove funzionalità del finder e della visualizzazione dei file stile iTunes (cover flow), ora mi tocca fare i conti con i primi malfunzionamenti e con qualche software non ancora compatibile. Se stai pensando di fare il grande passo, dai prima un occhiata qui:

Sul sito Tevac c’è la lista dei malfunzionamenti e incompatibilità: schermate blu con blocco totale, impossibilita’ di effettuare il login, problemi con l’audio, problemi di accesso ai dati dei dischi di rete, problemi con X11.

Su MacRumors c’è la lista delle applicazioni non compatibili con Leopard:

Applicazioni con problemi maggiori

  • Acidsearch
  • Adobe CS3 – links to a pdf where Adobe outlines what will work and what won’t (Acrobat and video apps have issues as does Lightroom)
  • AlchemyTV – A fix will be coming, but no timetable for it
  • Alien Skin – Photoshop Plugins that crash Photoshop under Leopard; fix expected week of November 19th
  • AOL Crashes when attempting to edit Preferences
  • Apple Aperture should not be run at the same time as Time Machine. Potentially dire consequences. (Does Aperture update 1.5.6 fix this?)

  • HttpMail
  • HoudahSpot 1.5 – HoudahSpot 2.0 will be a free upgrade for registered users. HoudahSpot 1.5 is now freeware for Tiger users.

Ti darò compagnia fra 2 settimane vediamo come andrà…

ciao… visto che sei un appassionato, volevo chiederti una cosa… uso toast per masterizzare col Mac, ma non mi soddisfa, specialmente con le masterizzazioni multisessione… mi sapresti consigliare una valida alternativa (semplice come nero express per windows)? Grazie

Prova questi:


I’d prefer reading in my native language, because my knowledge of your languange is no so well. But it was interesting!
