Mac Leopard OS

You may have seen in the IR Update that Computer Services will be purchasing the new Leopard OS for university-owned Macintoshes. Here is an update on where we are with this project.

We have received the quote for the software and will be ordering it soon. Purchasing the software is not the what takes so long in the process of getting it to you, the student or faculty/staff member, it’s the testing that we must do to make sure that it works as best as it can for you.

We are already aware that Adobe Photoshop CS2 will not work with Leopard, so that is one issue that will need to be addressed. If you are currently using this software, you will need to purchase CS3 from your departmental funds. You can place a workorder for this purchase. If you know of anything else that we may need to keep an eye on in our testing, please post a comment or email us to let us know.

Thank you for your patience as we work to get you new and exciting things to work with.
