heres my main problems with 10.5
firstly, the fact that now you cannot set a window to a certain view setting consistently without going into the view preferences. its stupid and counter intuitive, unlike in 10.4 where it was automatically always the way you set it to last (apart from in drag and drop where you navigate through the file hierarchy). Not to mention that it doesnt always work. if you use the forward and back buttons in the finder window, then it will break this until you arrive at that window without using them. stupid and really annoying.
secondly, and this one is more frustrating, is the fact that quite often, waking my MBP from sleep will result in a plain black screen. I have no idea what the cause is, and it doesnt always happen. but when it does i have to force restart my computer which i hate... after that it doesnt happen for a while and then suddenly... aaaaarGH!!!!!
thirdly, and this may have been the fault of an old version of steermouse being installed (now updated), every once in a while, after waking from sleep, both my revolution vx and the trackpad will not track properly, and skip across the screen. making it very difficult to navigate properly. only a restart will fix this, and its bleeding annoying.
finally, though, occasionally the laptop will stop recognising inputs from various interface points. While it was in 10.4 that the right USB port simply refuses to recognise my logitech mouse dongle, its always worked with everything else, and that dongle works fine on the other side (no biggie, i prefer it there anyway). but in the last couple of days its will occasionally stop recognising the dongle in the left port as well, which a restart fixes, and just now the FW800 refused to recognise my iomega RAID... now i dont think its a hardware issue because they worked fine in 10.4, and its always fixed by restarting, and i cant think of any haxies or pref panes or anything that can be causing this... theyre all updated to their 10.5 versions anyway, or have been deleted...
so 10.5 is still pretty buggy in its .1 release, but overall im still loving it...
except that damned 3D dock! (ive set it to 2D, but even that styling grates, why cant i just make the background invisible??)
