I just thought I would start a thread to see if anyone has problems and or suggestions for Tiger. I have not installed yet but it's right here.I thought I'd give it a few hours of seeing if any unexpected things are going on
So, if you have seemed to run into problems or questions, lets hear them, please?

Repaired Permissions first, then Archive & Install keeping settings. Left spotlight alone to do it's thing for a while, reloaded printer & mouse drivers.
All great and working well. Gimp is struggling a bit but getting better :-) No other problems.
NeoOffice/J, iBank and EazyDraw fine.

i was considering buying it tomorrow but I think I will wait until the summer. My friend just installed it and he told me Safari is acting wacky/slow. He also said that he got a Kernel Panic (uh oh). He restarted and repaired and says Safari is still slow and acting buggy/quits.

Onyx does not work with 10.4 yet as well. He hopes Apple will have an update by Monday... yeah right!

Put the disc in, restart, uprade, and done. Everything I expected to run on Tiger works as expected except Deja Menu. Safari is fast, though I am still sticking with Camino.

EDIT: OGG plugin for QuickTime is broken as well.

Moving this thread....the Suggestions forums, as it states, is only for Mac-Forums.com suggestions, not Apple issues.

Installed my Tiger yesterday with no problems. Did a regular "upgrade" install and everything went very well. Took about 28 minutes and then it booted right up into Tiger. Only program that broke was Oynx, but that was expected as they don't have their Tiger version out yet.

I keep seeing people crying about Safari and being slow, i don't see this at all. After running the java speed test i find that Safari is running just as fast as it was after the 10.3.9 update. It posted a 6.3 second score on the test, being beat by only Opera 8 at 5.36. Same as before. I have been on at least 75 websites since the install and everything works great with Safari on my system.

Sounds like a couple of you need to do a format and brand new install.
