Mac OS 10.5 Leopard box

Apple has released the Mac OS X 10.5.8 update, patching a few issues in its Leopard operating system.

Aside from general stability issues, the update fixes problems with joining AirPort networks, monitor resolution settings and Bluetooth reliability with peripheral devices like printers. The update also fixes an error which slowed startup time and another which affected imports of large movie or photo files.

The Mac OS X 10.5.8 update includes the latest version of Safari and all recent security patches.

The next version of the Mac OS operating system - Mac OS X 10.6, dubbed Snow Leopard - is set to appear next month, with pre-orders already available online in the US.

Can the Mac OS ever be the business platform of choice? Read our feature to find out.
