The article offers information about Apple's Leopard operating systems' client-server relationship in the U.S. It notes that the client version of Apple's Leopard operating system depends more on its server software because it has traits that shares with Microsoft's combination of Vista clients and the upcoming Windows 2008 Server. The system shared with Vista contains superfluity of bugs, user-interface behavior problems and occasional configuration-file overwrites. The updated version 10.5.1 of Leopard client contains incremental changes to its user interface and bundled applications.
