Well from what i understand and have read from others is it will work, but people have had crashes and lost all there data.
Breaking the EULA is if you do do it you are breaking the regulations and the law and if need be or they want to if your caught Apple can take you to court and charge you for using there software unwilfully in a way it was not meant to be used.

The disadvantages are that it's illegal, unethical, and immoral. Is that not enough?

The $30 Snow Leopard upgrade is intended to upgrade an existing 10.5 install. However, since it can be used to do a "clean" install, it will work on a machine that has 10.4. You will, however, need to completely wipe your HDD to install it - 10.6 will not do a straight upgrade from 10.4. This is well established on the Internets, including a brief mention from Walt Mossberg just a few months ago. So, before anyone gets irritated with me, I'm not telling you anything that a bit of Googling wouldn't yield.

Do keep in mind that OS X does not include the iLife suite (iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, etc.). So, if you decide to upgrade, you will still be stuck with the old version of iLife. As I understand it, the '06 version of iDVD doesn't work at all on Snow Leopard, and the other apps may be a bit flakey as well. And also, since you're breaking with Apple's EULA, there is some legal gray area there and of course, you shouldn't expect any support from Apple at all.

With that said, the reason you're catching a bit of flak here from the members is that Apple has historically been very trusting of its customers in not implementing things like Product Activation or copy-protection. I think a lot of long-time Apple fans feel that if people abuse this trust, eventually Apple will go the way of Microsoft and start introducing draconian protection schemes.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Ouch! haha

I'm sure it's tempting for users with 10.4. I probably wouldn't love being in that situation, but seriously... play by the rules or, as mentioned, Apple will have no choice but to start implementing "draconian protection schemes". None of us want that - it's like the guy who keeps burning popcorn in the break room microwave and now the boss has to make a rule that bans popcorn altogether. Don't be that guy!

What he(?) said. We have a Tiger and a Leopard. Instead of buying the Family Pack (or whatever it's called) I've done nothing. I will wait for 10.7 I guess, and pay the usual $129 or whatever price Apple charges. I'm sure they knew some users would do that.
