    Hi peeps.

    Due to the rumours and evidence of iLife'11, I was just wondering about the process of upgrading.

    When/if I get iLife'11, do I need to uninstall iLife'09? or will it just be a case of sticking the '11 disc in and letting it do its thing i.e. will it overwrite the '09 files etc, so I don't need to worry about multiple iphoto's being on my system.

    Thanks.
    :)

    The installer should take care of it, including removing the old apps and upgrading any databases.

    In the event that one of the apps is dramatically changed, you may see a situation similar to when iLife 08 came out, in that it allowed you to keep iMovie 06 by moving it to a folder called iMovie (Previous Version).
