    Question Best wau to upgrade
    When Tiger comes out, what's the best way to upgrade? Should we do a complete reinstallation or should we just "upgrade" it, so as to ensure a very stable system? What are your opinions?

    Thanks,
    Sonny

    I did the archive and install with Panther and it worked really well on my iBook.

    I did the upgrade because I had no method of backing up gigs and gigs of data. It wasn't too good. You should back up and wipe your drive clean, and install.

    Lightbulb Just say NO to upgrade
    Upgrading an OS is bad. It's bad under Windows, it's bad under OS X. Back your data up and and then do at LEAST Archive and Install, or as the BEST solution, do a clean install.
