Yes, new macbook owner, am happy, but am not, why is it apple isnt getting sued for including so many apps in their OS, but windows does?

Anyways, not why i am here.....

all i want is to install tiger, i don't want the extra's, the Ilife all that ..


i just want the base O/S and nothing more.

Since it seems Tiger or OSX doesnt really have uninstallers for all apps, it is a mix between deleting the apps folder, and searching for files in hopes you find what is left over, which i do find ridiculous these days....

If all i want is tiger, nothing else, do i literally need to go buy a new tiger OS ? or spend hours looking for orphan files for programs i just delete the folders / files for manually ?

please tell me it is easier then this - I mean the way that OSX is praised up and down as being such a superior OS and all....

not sure if this can be done, but can't you just reinstall from the disks you got with the macbook, and choose a minimum installation?

congrats on the new mac!
btw, you should change your user profile (still says you have no mac )

Yes, you can do an install like that. You are able to choose what gets installed and what doesn't by doing a custom installation. You would have to reformat and wipe your drive first, but it can be done.
