I've just picked up intuos 5 medium today, and haven't got much time to play around with it, but first thing I've checked was the shoelacing, and ta-daa, it is there.

I've also noticed some end-of-stroke artifacts with painter's scratchboard tool, esp. on medium to low opacity (30 to 50 percent in my case), which kinda leaves me wondering what exactly wacom has fucked up with current pen tech, since this problem was not apparent with intuos 3 (I noticed some pressure hiccups on windows now and than, but they were gone after switching)
it also might be a cross-platform floating bug that they haven't tracked already, thus lack of exact confirmation from wacom support person.
and btw, 4ever flawless mac wacom drivers crashed on me once already during a... 15 minute test run?
idk what exactly caused it, but it was unexpected and it sucks.
will see if it happens more in the following days - I do love the hardware itself, design is great and art-pen doesn't feel like a beautifully designed cobble, but the software side left me quite disappointed. (I got the no-touch model, btw, so it might be even worse with touch-enabled models.)
on the fourth day of glitchmas my painter™ gave to me
four random crashes, three broken brushes, two system hangups & one corrupted workspace
