Okay, so I've been mulling over this decision for a while now... I'm debating whether or not to upgrade to OS X. I have reservations about it slowing down my system or causing more headaches than its worth. I've got a PowerMac G4 466mzh with over 1 gig of RAM and a 30GB HD. I'm running OS 9.1 (9.1 and 10.0 came pre-installed when I purchased the computer). I had been running 9.2 but my computer started giving me trouble in recent weeks.... it would freeze up/crash. It was quite puzzling and no real solution was ever found. But the problem has cleared up for the most part (it still ocassionally gives me trouble but not like it had been). In trying to figure out what was wrong with the computer I ended up re-installing my 9.1 software. I have a "Previous System Folder" on my hard drive now - should I get rid of that? Would it be a good idea to upgrade to 10.2? Do you think it's worth making the upgrade given the age of my system? And if I should upgrade, what is the best way to go about doing it? I've got the CD... aren't there a couple of different ways to install the 10.2 software? I remember hearing that one option is to archive your existing system? Is that the way to go? After the update I'll also want to use OS X native applications as much as possible. The idea of switching back and forth between OS X and Classic seems annoying (and potentially slow). I've got Office 98 and Photoshop 5.5 but I will have Office X and Photoshop 7 at my disposal. Should I delete the older programs before upgrading? After? Does it matter? I just don't want to be using up wasted space on my hard drive. I want to optimize performance and avoid as many hassles as I can. I'm sorry for asking what must be simple and stupid questions... I'm a Mac user but by no means am I an expert. I just want to make sure that I don't regret upgrading, and I want to make sure my system doesn't start acting up. Thanks for any assistance!
