I'm still on 10.3.9. Haven't upgraded to Tiger because — as an observer — I don't see anything that I'd classify as mission-critical, or at least productivity boosting. And frankly, I have better things to spend $130 on. The sneak peaks at Leopard haven't exactly knocked my socks off, either. But I'm sure at some point — 2 or 3 updates into 10.5 or later, I'm gonna be "wishing I was there".<br><br>Note: A clean install is probably not the best for me, since I don't have the install discs for my primary suite (CS2). This is because last spring, an IT guy at an agency I was freelancing at offered to install the suite on my PB because I was using my own equipment, and bringing a lot of work home. By carefully harvesting every related file on the HD, I was able to duplicate the installation on my Quicksilver. But I don't know if I'd be that lucky again. An update is probably safer for me (when CS3 is released, I'll bite the bullet and buy the beast outright).<br><br>So what I need to know is this: If I skip Tiger altogether and pop for Leopard when it's released, will I still be able to upgrade directly from 10.3.9, or do I need Tiger as a bridge? I'd hate to have to shell out for a new OS twice in the same 12-month period. But if that's my only choice...<br><br>
If you had upgraded to Tiger you would have lost the ability to double-click on a finder image and have CS2 see it. Not mission critical but it sure was annoying. The only fix I found that worked was doing a disk reinstall of CS2.<br><br>So you missed out on that bug. I am sure you can upgrade by skipping Tiger but you may pick up a bug like that attached to CS2 requiring an install.<br><br>Does yoyo know you have two CS2 installs and no disks? Now I know why adobe hasn't been able to go universal binary on photoshop. They don't have any money to pay the programmer.<br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
LOL, you and I are at 180° from each other. You wipe (with the Nukular-Quadzillion-Zero-Date-Praze-Da-Lawd-An'-Bless-Mah-Duhrive option. And I do a bare-bones wipe and re-install once every ice age. <br><br>
"By carefully harvesting every related file on the HD, I was able to duplicate the installation on my Quicksilver." <br><br>So how did you do that without have to transfer the activation to the Quicksilver? I upgraded a hard drive on a friend's Powerbook and, even though I cloned the old hard drive to the new one, it still mucked up the activation and he had to call Adobe to switch it. Maybe yours was a site license version which handles the activation differently. Lucky dog.<br><br>
This was definitely a site license. Agency with roughly 20 seats. And I guess it doesn't rely on a server-based activation like Quark. But that's why I'm reluctant to try it again. And that's also why when CS3 releases, I'm just gonna dig deep and buy it, and not have to tip-toe around OS upgrades any more.<br><br>
Look, I'm just trying to save you a big indictment here. But fine. Have it your way: <br>yoyo bribed a judge. Flat out bought his kid's way out of hard time!<br><br>Ok? Happy now, Mr. DeLay Wannabe. <br><br>
