    Lightbulb New macbook - i just want tiger!!
    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!

    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.
