Mac OS - CS5

I am getting ready to upgrade to AECS5 (actually the Production Suite, of which I mostly use AE and Photoshop), and the question I have is this:

Is there a noticeable speed or stability advantage in running it in Snow Leopard vs Leopard (10.6 vs 10.5.8)?

Does anyone have experience with AECS5 (or any of the other Production Suite programs) in both Leopard and Snow Leopard from which to make a recommendation either way?

Thanks for your input.

We recently upgraded from CS4 to CS5 and from Leopard to Snow Leopard. The biggest issue was that of updating plugins (or not, as the case may be) to work in a 64-bit environment. Other than that, it's been a pretty smooth transition, really. The added RAM overhead in CS5/Snow Leopard was the biggest draw for us. I'd say go ahead, but perhaps keep an install of CS4 on your computer for backwards compatibility with older projects and for those projects you want to use 32 bit plugins on.

It's only work if you'd rather be doing something else...
