Seems to be different update sizes for the different Macs.  My iMac came to about 160Mb, but my Macbook was a lot more.

Downloaded a single combo update instead!  Will test it out tonight, but I'm quite wary of these Leopard generation updates - they always seem to break more than they fix!

420MB for Delta, 536MB for Combo here.

Downloaded in 2min, no problems at all.

As for the issues, one isolated issue shouldn't be cause for concern.  We have no idea of now the blogger treated his machine, or the issues that a faulty logic board could have caused to the rest of the system.

That blogger is one example, sure, but there are others - with each update comes trouble for many users.  The rest go smoothly.  Check the apple support forums for proof

It is impossible to release updates that cover the gamut of what a user can possibly have done to their system.  

I do check Apple's support forums - every day in fact.  I'm an L4 and have been for many years.  In my experience people who suffer issues have often done silly things to their systems.  Not all - there are ones caught by an insufficient testing on Apple's part, but a lot of it is caused by people not thinking.

Not regarding all the updates, share your thoughts, feedback and success/failure rates with 10.5.3 updates so that others who are waiting to upgrade can go ahead.

If you want to share your thoughts on the general software upgrades released by Apple, you are free to start a new thread Smile

Fair enough. 

Actually, no - it's not.

The thread went in a natural direction and it was not me who mentioned that:

but there are others - with each update comes trouble for many users.  The rest go smoothly.  Check the apple support forums for proof

Perhaps the request to stay on topic should be addressed to all in the thread.

No obvious new problems yet (some old ones not fixed though) - I've run it for around 24hrs now. Seems pretty good, I think they've fixed the main issue I was seeing - so I'm pretty happy overall. Waiting to see more reports before I put the server version on our Xserves though.

My Macbook has twice locked up on Shutdown since installing the update.  Just hangs on the wallpaper with no dock or menu bar.  Going to repair permissions etc tonight and see what happens.

To all:

The replies in this thread are valid, and not considered off topic.

The general notion that a software update might not be perfect is a valid point to raise in a thread about a specific update.

I have not gone ahead with this update, but I probably will over the weekend.

Have a nice day.
