OS X Leopard or Tiger on a Powerbook G4

Hey guys, I'm wondering how well Leopard would perform on my Powerbook G4 Titanium, it has 667 Mhz processor and 512mb of ram, can anyone tell me if it will be to slow? Or what the advantages of Leopard would be too? Thanks!

Leopard requires an 867MHz processor and 512MB RAM, minimum. Anything less than that is going to be mind-bogglingly slow, if operable at all.

Stick with Tiger. Still a perfectly valid OS, and it'll run like a charm on those specs.

Leopard adds:

• Time Machine
• Stacks (springloaded folders in the dock)
• Spaces (multiple workspaces available with a key combination, sort of like Linux)
• More built-in printer drivers

... and discontinues Classic support. No OS 9 apps for you.
