    I just got a new mini a few weeks ago after my PC died. 1.66 late 2006.

    I was playing around with bootcamp and I accidently erased 10.4.7. 10.4.7. comes on the restore CDs. So I reinstalled 10.4.7. I had to do it a few times to get it right.

    I finally got it on my system. No office or anything. I forgot to install a few thing under options. But it was stable at least.

    I always put it to sleep. Never shutdown or restart. Today I had to restart. It was acting up so I did a restart. I clicked on my account. Put in my password but it wouldn't load. I couldn't see a menu bar. Only dock. So I launched Itunes and I was able to see the bar and goto apple. But when I quit Itunes the menu bar froze. So I had to hold the power buton and restart.

    I was afraid I'd have to reformat and reinstall.

    But I was able to get get on the internet at least and not completely frozen after restart. Just no menu bar.

    So I downloaded 10.4.8 and then 10.4.9 intel update.

    10.4.8 did nothing. But 10.4.9. after restart everything was back to normal.

    I never needed to reformat. And my menu bar is back. Everything works great now.

    Just conciedence. Or is 10.4.7. buggy for anyone else.

    I wish my discs came with 10.4.9 but by that time it may already be time for leopard.

    So I just got to keep a spare copy handy I guess.

    It was never buggy for me, I haven't had issues with any of the releases.:)
