I just order my Up-To-Date copy. I've got an extra HD in the Mac Pro - clone that boot drive and I'll upgrade right away. Excited to get some, hopefully, more horsepower out of these 8 cores!

Charlie -
why do you assume that Leopard will load up, and all of your AJA /Blackmagic/Disk Drive host cards will all still work. We have seen problems EVERY TIME Apple changes their OS, and we already know how uncooperative Apple is with third party vendors (it took Apple forever to get LSI to build their own Apple Fibre Channel card for PCI-E, and this is their own product !).

I would like to forget about Leopard until around April 2008. All I care about now is getting the I/O HD, and making sure that works. It takes SO LONG for all these products to stabilize, and now Apple "rocks the boat" once again.

Why are you so combative? of course I don't assume anything will work. That's why I said I'm cloning my Tiger boot drive, then I can fool around with Leopard to my heart's content.

I'm with you, Charlie. I am 'sorta' disappointed in my 8 core and I am hoping Leopard will make me not so disappointed. A separate boot drive is definitely in order for some pussy-catting around.

I'm dissapointed that I can't seem to put any strain on these processors. Only compressor and after effects even begin to use up all this macho! Need more macho!

Prepare to continue to be disappointed if you think Leopard is going to have your Apps make use of the extra processors. It won't. What it will do is provide a means for the next iteration of Apps to scale much better with multiple cores. But the onus is still on the devs to do that. The best mutli-processing App at the moment (IMO) is Modo (the 3D App). It will scale pretty much linearly while rendering with up to 16 local cores.

Unfortunately 64-bit procs have been with us for many years and we are just now getting 64-bit OS's (Vista, Leopard). It's going to be another long wait before Apps are truely capable of taking advantage of all of your cores. By that time we'll have 16 or 32 core machines.

Why am I so combative ? 40 years in NY. I will fight with anyone about anything, for any reason (as long as I can be helpful at the same time). As a matter of fact, what the hell is the X for in Charlie X.

Hey AJA guys, when are u giving us Leopard drivers???

[JeremyG] "Not until AJA ships floaties!"

Given that Leopard was due out ages ago, I'm assuming that AJA has had developer betas for months and months. I'll bet they post Kona drivers very quickly.

Let's see if they give us a heads-up...

OF course they will be ready guys, but don't think that just because apple delayed did not mean that everything else fell in behind, Apple just declared GM in the last few days.

Hi
;-) Won't we all have to stump up $69 for the Leopard-compatible FCS maintenance release DVDs?
Too big for download...
