The Leopard has landed...

I just got a message from my brother that my Leopard DVD has arrived, or at least arrived at his house in the UK (I ordered it from the UK Apple store on Monday). So now Im quite happy that its there but also hoping that it survives the journey in the post to the Czech Republic and that I survive the next couple of days waiting to get my hands on it :)

Its a shame as with the weekend I would have had some time to play with it. Either way, once I get it I'll post some updates and thoughts here.

Has anyone got theirs already?

Leopard confirmed for Oct 26th

So today Apple officially confirmed that Leopard will be release on October 26th (link : TUAW). I have to admit that Im quite looking forward to it but Im still debating how to go about the installation.

What I mean by this is that Im debating doing a total clean install of OSX plus apps, plus windows plus apps, or just trying to upgrade my existing Tiger installation. Usually with a new OS I tend to do a complete clean install but as we have a baby on the way, due in a 5 weeks, Im not sure I'll have the time (or energy) to do this.

I know that some of you are probably reminding me of the migration assistant right now but I had a "bad" experience using it in the past when migrating data from my powerbook to my MBP. Basically it copied all of the crud over that I'd so carefully avoided installing on my MBP from the system folders - grrr.

Still I have backups of both of my OS'es so it might not be a bad idea to experiment in the interests of science and try an upgrade first.

Ive pre-ordered my copy from the UK store, so hopefully I will have it before the end of October.

Long time no see

Hi, sorry for the lack of posts here for a while but Ive been home sick :( I somehow managed to pick up an infection of the upper respiratory tract - which resulted in a course of antibiotics and me being out of commission for a while.

Im alive again now, so time to post again :)
