Fascinating Leopard Install Fact #2

October 31st, 2007  |  Published in etc  |  2 Comments


p>Last in a series, because I think there’s nothing left to report about installing Leopard. A few third party apps have kicked up a fuss (1Password (since fixed, see comments) , Saft, Lightroom) but everything has mostly just worked. It was a good idea to leave the machine alone to reindex Spotlight and kick off its first Time Machine backup.


p>There is one detail I didn’t have time to post yesterday:




Confronted with what it believes to be an unpowered mouse during installation, Leopard does a very polite thing: It reminds you that your mouse might need batteries and provides a diagram illustrating how to put those batteries in the mouse. Then it sits there until it detects a mouse.

Slightly less awesome: It did that with a mouse that had fresh batteries in it.

    1Password had a few issues when Leopard was first shipped, but after a few sleepless nights we managed to get things going again :)

    We now support all the web browsers that we supported on Tiger.

    Hi, David. That’s true … the last of my issues with 1Password were resolved by Wednesday morning. I really appreciated getting a personal response to my support query within the same day, too. I’m sure you all had your hands full.
