Post your experiences, (if anyone ELSE wants to do this besides me) :D

note: Dual-boot is, I suppose an option, but seems like a hassle.

Which model do you want to downgrade to Leopard? The newest 2011 model? The 2011 ones cannot run anything less then 10.7/Lion.

Yes that's what I want to do, but assumed that. But someone will try, thats for sure.

This will be a huge mistake. It may be done if somebody fools enough with kext's , if no messing about with the EFI is required. Why would one want to do that though? Lion is inherently a much more secure OS, than its predecessors

If you can backport the kexts, I'm sure you can even run Tiger.

Want a real challenge? Try and get Rhapsody going on it :p

No I won't do it, but some apps don't work and the time frame for updates is crappy.

I mean, I've resorted to bootcamp, which is not-fun. Windows is lovely, but I bought an Apple.
