To Apple core users,

I have read through many articles in general and posts in this discussion board in particular. My questions is "Should I upgrade from Tiger to Leopard and why?" I am asking because I do not want to create problems that I do not currently have.

Thanks,

Tim

    I upgraded because I enjoy the learning experience that goes along with it, not because 10.5 had features I needed. You have to weigh what you have now against what you will gain and the baggage that may come with it.

    Only you can answer that question.
    Everything we do in life has both plusses and minuses. If you do not want to create problems, the only solution is to never do anything.
    I can tell you what I did and why, but that won't help you. You own your own choices.
    Examine all the options and make up your own mind as to which course to proceed in.
    If someone here told you what to do and you had a problem, you might blame that person. We have to take responsibility for our own choices.
    Let us know what you chose. Just remember "Choose Wisely."

    I recall when I upgraded to 10.4 things didn't seem to go smoothly until 10.4.3 and got pretty seamless by 10.4.5 or 10.4.6. Clearly, this early in the game, 10.5.1 has some issues that need to be resolved. Are you willing to go through the growing pains? I have had some pain but have generally found workarounds on these boards from experienced and far smarter individuals than myself. In my opinion, if you aren't interested in the 'new' features of Leopard right now...why upgrade? I understand 10.5 uses the Intel chipset to full capacity... is that enough reason for you?
