Leopard Install… Upgrade? Fresh + Migrate?

MBPro has been running Leopard for many moons as my main development machine. It was bought stock with 10.4.x and promptly wiped in favor of 9a### revs of Leopard until launch.

Not so with the PowerBook. It still has 10.4.11 and I’m contemplating the move to Leopard this week. I’ve heard some people had problems “upgrading”. Wonder what the groupthink is on this one…

Upgrade over Tiger? -or-

Fresh install and migrate stuff over?

    I think the upgrading issue comes from some third-party hack software that gets loaded, either directly, or, funnily enough, through some Logitech control panel (if you are using a Logitech mouse, that is).

    However, that being said, I would still do a wipe and fresh install. Why? Because I come from the Windows world (just got my first Mac last week! woot!) and that’s standard protocol. So, really, my opinion makes little difference due to lack of Mac upgrade experience — just thought I’d throw my 2 cents in! 🙂
