Mac OS X Leopard has arrived

My copy of the latest version of Mac OS X has arrived today…  I’ve been wrestling with the best way to install it.  You know, should I wipe my drive and install fresh, or wipe my drive and copy my profile from my Tiger backup, or just perform an upgrade install so I don’t have to bother with reinstalling anything?

My “Windows” side tells me that I should wipe and install, just like I would if I were installing a new copy of a Microsoft product.  I like the idea of a clean install, as that would get rid of any lingering issues in Tiger (due to corrupted configuration, etc.)  When I got my iMac, I copied my profile (apps and all) from my G4 mini.  Suprisingly, everything still worked, but for some time I had a modem listed in my iMac (that was carried over from my mini), even though the iMac doesn’t have one.  There’s also the side of  me that just wants to upgrade and not have to worry about registered software that I’d have to reinstall (and find the keys to), the possibility that my iTunes library might have problems, etc.

I’m still not sure what I’m going to do, but for the moment, I’m letting SuperDuper update my cloned drive image so if anything goes terribly wrong, I can just reboot to my cloned drive and be back in Tiger.

I’ll be sure to post more about my experiences after I’ve installed it and had a chance to play around with it a while.
