Just got my update in the mail. I'm still on CS2 so this is a big update for me. One question that nags me though, should I wait to hear if there are any problems or just do it? I'm on a Mac - 10.5.8.

Adobe still is doing CS4 updates for some of their applications. You just know that with CS5 it will be no difference. So I would expect updates.

If you are using Time Machine for backing up your computer, then simply do a back-up prior to installing CS5. That way you can easily revert back to a good and stable set-up.

Unless you have a bunch of work piled up, it might be a good time to upgrade. I would not do a major software change in the middle of any project. Best to keep original edits within the same software family.

Anyway, I am curious how well CS5 will work on Leopard. I have no interest in moving to Snow Leopard, due to a few odd things I saw on another MacBook Pro a friend of mine recently upgraded. CS5 should run fine on Leopard, at least from early comments I have heard.

Gordon, I use SuperDuper because it also makes the backup bootable. I REALLY needed that when I updated from Leopard to Snow Leopard. I was one of those who had issues - my computer would reboot on its own. For that, booting from the clone and recopying it was fairly easily. Some files still had to be copied over though.

Naturally I will upgrade, and I will have my old copy of CS2 available for use. I'm a slow learner, so I'm gonna need that old copy.
