    I Installed Tiger on my brother's Blue and White G3 in 400Mhz G4 Upgrade and realized that videos online and overall speed and usage was TERRIBLE compared to 10.3 it previously had. We decided to downgrade it but want to know, How do you downgrade without losing ALL of your settings and files? Is this possible, If so PLEASE let me know.

    PS: I have 10.4.6 installed.

    Have a look at this article. But depending on what Tiger-specific apps and documents you have on your computer, you could run into some problems.

    You mean there's no equivalent of System Restore like Windows XP Home/Pro which lets you just rollback to any previous state?

    System Restore wouldn't return you to a previous Windows 98 install, would it?

    I would suggest a backup of the old OS but I guess that's too late now, huh?
