Leopard on a G5 worth it?

Recommended Posts

I tried to see if this question had been asked already, but search didn't show anything.

 

I have a dual 1.8GHz G5 with 2GB RAM. Has anyone with a similar machine installed Leopard? Is it slower?

 

I basically use my machine for Photoshop, Lightroom, and World of Warcraft.

It's faster on my mum's 1.5Ghz G5 with 512mb ram, so it will certainly be as good or faster on your G5.

A G5 isn't a bad processor, so don't think that just because apple ditched them means they were bad. They just weren't being rev'd enough so apple switched. The G5 was truly a great processor and an amazing feat for it's time, but it was just expensive. You'll have no problem running any of those programs.
