    What do people recommend? Doing a clean install of SL and losing everything and restoring it all from time machine, or just upgrading to SL?

    While clean install is what most people recommend and that is what I was going to do, but I thought I'd try the upgrade. I have no complaints it went amazingly well and everything runs smoothly so really it depends how quickly u want leopard installed and if you want to take the opportunity to "clean" the OS.

    Back up everything. Try the upgrade path first. If anything goes wrong then do Erase and Install.
