Upgrading To Leopard: Will You Wait Or Pounce On It As Soon As It Comes Out?

With a little more than two days to go before Leopard is officially launched, I’m asking my self the question, should I pounce or not?
With 300+ plus features, Leopard is making a compelling argument. But is it enough? In my opinion, a resounding yes.

Tip: Re-mounting Your Disk
