upgrade to Leopard

I use a MacBook when traveling or at clients, not 9-5, so it was a good machine to test the Leopard upgrade on. I was also really looking forward to "having more fun and being more productive," as they said would happen in their video guide to Leopard.

But just from a nuts and bolts perspective, I wanted to post to report on what issues I've had since the upgrade. There haven't been many, which is good. Just to be sure though, I used SuperDuper! to make an image of my MacBook if I needed to go back for any reason.

One of my main concerns was Parallels, but that came through the upgrade fine. The only issues I've discovered so far are:
1. I lost my Brother tools for printing and scanning to my Brother 8860DN. I'll let you know if that comes back up on reinstall.
2. The parental controls have changed significantly, and I have yet to figure out how to get those working again. I discovered this one when my 7 year old logged into his account and was surfing the net free and clear, which he was excited about of course.

I'll add comments once I get these things resolved, and let you know what else I discover.

Widgets disappear in Leopard, at least for now, no real solution yet, but seems it may have something to do with parental controls.
