I upgraded, found some glitches, incompatibilities and annoyances, and almost immediately went back to Tiger. Then some fixes and tweaks came out and I gave Leo the benefit of the doubt and reinstalled. Then I found even more glitches, incompatibilities and annoyances, and went back to Tiger again today.

I'll be waiting until Photoshop, Lightroom, iSnip, Max, SuperDuper, Candybar, SafariBlock, Spotlight/Finder searches and the DMG unmounting bug get fixed or become compatible. Also waiting until TimeMachine sounds more stable and Stacks get some more powerful options.

I wanna like the Leo. For now I can't.

*Crap. This was supposed to be a poll but the server hiccupped.*

Have you Leopardized?
1. I'm still waiting.
2. Yes, I upgraded and I'm lovin' Leo.
3. I upgraded then downgraded.
4. I upgraded, then downgraded, then upgraded, then downgraded. My S.O. is so sick of seeing me at the computer he/she wants to pour syrup on the motherboard.

Before I upgraded, I made a bootable clone of my HD with SuperDuper, just in case.

Assuming you didn't do something similar, you'd have to install Tiger from scratch, preferably on a different drive, boot into that, copy the files you need from the Leopard HD, and possibly, if Leopard will let you, do a migration of your user account from Leopard back to Tiger.
