    Panther's on it's way!
    Well, I just ordered my copy tonight. I had decided to pick it up at the Night of Panther (even though I had some reservations a while back about buying it in its initial release version), but we very disappointed to learn that no Educational pricing was being offered at the stores. So I ordered online tonight, and hopefully it will arive late this week.

    Now I need to decide whether I want to do a complete wipe, or install over Jaguar. I'm still a little confused about the process. If I do decide to do a clean wipe and install, how will I go about re-installing the software that came with my iBook (Appleworks, Quicken, World Book, etc.)?

    u might want to upgrade over jaguar. I did both, first an upgrade and later just a clean swipe. upgrade is better because a clean install removes little things ur computer came with that u never tripped off the fact that they were important but now theyre gone. now, if u dont care about that kinda stuff then yah just do it clean, make sure u back up ur important stuff

    What sort of "little things" are missing?

    heh I explained it wrong I think. Ill just tell you what happened to me. I upgraded from jaguar and everything was fine, except something went wrong with my safari, so I had to do a clean swipe. when I did it, I discovered iDVD did not install, nor did things that came with my computer such as appleworks, developer tools, some games, some utilities and free trials of stuff. they werent really that important but I felt like I was "robbed" of things, heh. fortunately I had the original disc that came with my comp that installs iDVD and developer tools and oter goodies that came with my comp but still I feel like wierd a bout losing the stuff. I d unno if that helps you very much

    Yeah, this is an upgrade. You can still do the Software Restore and get all of your old stuff back. You're machine should have come with Software Restore CD's.
