    i have an older G4 1.25GHz that i still run Tiger on. if i go to leopard, will it slow down the computer? i remember switching from OS9 to 10- my computer was never the same again. granted, the difference between OS9 and OSX was pretty significant, but i just wanted to check here.

    Yes, as Leopard needs at least 867 MHz, thus the little difference to 1.25GHz is not really significant. I had Mac OS X 10.5 installed on my G4 iBook with 1GHz and 1.25GB RAM and it felt quite sluggish compared to Mac OS X 10.4,
