Take it easy on me since I have been a mac user only for a month now.
The Powerbook I bought came with Panther, and then a week ago I received a Tiger installation CD (I had to send for it with a copy of the invoice). I am very tempted to install Tiger but have read here that they experience strange behavior when they "upgrade."
I am more interested in a clean install. Is it just as painful as the windows world? How would one perform a clean Tiger installation without losing any applications and user data? I realize there is going to be some work involved in backup things up and such, but do I have to manually install all the programs I have now and then manuall move files over?
Any and all help greatly appreciated.
