Mac OS X 10.5.2

Mac OS X Leopard boxI usually wait a day or two when Mac OS X updates come out so I can see what horrors they may cause for others, but I decided to throw caution to the wind this time and install an update only a few hours after I knew it was available.

Turned out to be a very simple update. Did a full backup—Time Machine, handy that, actually did it for me—and installed the 10.5.2 update via Apple’s Software Update routine.

Now I’ve reduced the translucence of the OS X menu bar, which though it didn’t bother me much directly would occasionally wig me out when my desktop background would do its every-5-minutes automatic change. That’s about the single most obvious change for me, other than the Time Machine status indicator in the menu bar being on by default. The rest of the update is just structural/performance stuff I’ll possibly never notice directly.

Oh, and got a QuickTime update which also installed successfully but once more I haven’t found anything new yet.

So yeah. Happy Monday, eh?
