Thread: Tiger Thought

Ok, one of the main reasons i chose to switch was the prospects of tiger, it looks totally awsome.
Right, here we go - from a Windows background, i have experienced problems with upgrading an os to a new version. They always seem to run like a nail, unless i format and start again.
Seeing as though most programs for the mac, are just one file, im thinking tiger should just run like its a brand new install? Has anyone who upgraded to panther experienced this or confirm i wont notice a difference other than improved functionality.

it is not the drag-and-drop install that we all love with panther....
you just boot up with cd and you run through a few dialogs and then it installs and then it reboots like 2times dependning on what you instaslled
very simple, very NOT like windows install

i think the application being one file is very smart like you said. instead of dll's and system files. it's safer, although now there are installers with programs..
I also agree that tiger will be awsome, and hopefully will blow windows away!

So, is upgrading clunky or is it as smooth as a fresh format?
