    Will there be seperate versions for 32 and 64bit? I have a Core 2 Duo CPU so I will wan the 64 bit version.


    Will it be easy to update from tiger and keep all my apps/prefs?

    Nope, it's one version, fully 64/32 bit compatible.

    yep! Apple make their installation dead simple. When you buy Leo, follow the instructions to install it. Make sure you back everything up before you do, though; people have been known to lose data when upgrading their system.

    in fact, just back up all the time :)

    I think you're going to like your upgrade. If you choose archive and install, you'll keep all your settings and the new operating system will be ready to go with minimal tinkering. Or, if you wipe the whole drive and install everything fresh, you can reorganize your drive(s) from whatever backups you've made.

    I have never had a bad OS X install-- it's a relatively quick and painless process.

    Thanks guys!

    I am so anxious to get leopard.

    Even though I am a switcher as of 2006.


    It is cool that we don't have to wait nearly a decade for a new OS. :cool:

    i know, i'm stoked as well :D

    If Apple change their file system to ZFS, that feature alone will sell Leo to me. That on top of Time Machine, new Dashboard features and Core Animation makes it a steal! Hopefully they don't keep us waiting too long :)
