Apple is shipping a C library file with the wrong type/creator on Intel Macs. This causes a problem running the FB editor. There are more details, but most of the list members are familiar with them. There is a fix available for this, so not to worry. Also, the fix has already been incorporated in the FB beta, so the next official rev of FB will have it. If you need it sooner just ask. > I now am running 10.3.9 on my Mac and am thinking about upgrading > to the 10.5.0, which I believe one can purchase sometime this > month. What are your recommendations? Check with the developers of the applications you run now to see if their products are compatible with Leopard(10.5). Most apps that run in 10.4 should have no problem in 10.5 Some items for Leopard are unknown. For example, will a PowerPC Mac running Leopard still have Classic? (Classic is already gone on Intel Macs). If running Classic apps this would be important to you. > Will I also have to upgrade other software: Office, OmniPage Pro, > Quicken, etc. Doubtful that upgrades will be *required* but developers may offer new releases of their products that take advantage of 10.5 features. If you are asking if those apps will run in 10.5, the answer is probably YES. However, you should always check with the developer to be sure. Personally, I will wait a few point releases of Leopard before upgrading because my Tiger OS is stable and very dependable. It is possible I"ll buy a new machine replacement before I upgrade the OS.
