How buggy was OS X 10.5.0? There are 220 fixes in 10.5.3 ...

I don't recall 220 significant fixes in 10.4.3 or 10.3.3 or even 10.2.3. 

AppleInsider | Mac OS X 10.5.3 moving along, on course with iPhone 2.0?

Among those improvements are tweaks to the performance of certain graphics drivers and fixes to parental controls, wireless certificates, and screen sharing, those people say. The latest additions bring the running total of fixes expected as part of the release to a staggering 220.

OS X 10.5.0 was a really buggy release. I'm glad I haven't updated yet. With 220 big fixes in 10.5.3 I'm thinking of waiting for 10.5.4!

Seriously? There were probably 1-2 _major_ bugs that I ran into in 10.5.0, but everything I've noticed in 10.5.1-10.5.2 has been cosmetic/inconvenient at worst. There is such a thing as being _too_ cautious.

I'm the kind of user that has a big red bullseye on his chest.

I get hit by bugs nobody else notices; I've been tracking 10.5 bugs since release and I've lost track how often I've thought "yep, that one would have really hurt me".
