    Thumbs down Goodbye to Leopard - downgrading back to Tiger
    That's it. Time Machine doesn't work with parallels on my common setup (MBP with lacie ext hdd), Mail just refused to open, photoshop has crashed, three times in two days a transparent curtain has descended and told me to reboot, screen artifacts remain after closing safari, etc. It's not worth it, yet. At least for me. I use an intel mbp 17' all day using PS and FCP, wireless (yeah, that's messed up too) and some soundtrack pro. It's just after 4am here in the mountains and I am going to spend the next four hours going back to tiger.

    Am guessing you did a simple upgrade, yes?

    Similar issues on my upgrade, none with clean install.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    To be honest, I have had almost no issues at all with Leopard. I did a clean install however, not an upgrade.

    I'm planning to to a archive and install next week. I'm assuming, as a clean install, I won't have the same issues as those applying for the simple upgrade, right?
    If you believe you can do something, you can.
    If you don't think you can do it, you can't.
    Either way, you're right!

    I did an A&I and haven't had a problem with anything as of yet. Sorry that it's been such a bad experience for you.

    Had some issues while doing the "upgrade" install... so did an Archive & Install and haven't had any issues.

    Sorry you're having so many problems...
