Updating computer tiger leopard
So it’s really up to the end users, either save money and upgrade directly, or go the other route and you’ll be out 0.
Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is a great upgrade and it’s one I would highly recommend installing on any compatible Mac.
Before you go jumping into the fire, though, you must…
If you’re reading this article, you probably have a recent Tiger image you can deploy to a Mac for testing purposes.
The fact that you can save a lot of money by upgrading directly from 10.4 is a huge bonus.
When Leopard was first released, I was almost grateful that it didn’t work reliably with Active Directory since that flaw provided me with a valid excuse for not having an upgrade procedure ready to roll when upgrade requests started trickling in from my users.

One way or another, though, you should find a Mac running Tiger that you can use for your initial tests.
Boot this computer with your new Net Boot image and go through the installation process. Because we’re playing out of bounds with this Net Install image, the interface won’t reflect the fact that this is an upgrade installation. (This is the primary reason I’ve asked you to test it on something you can afford to mess up.) After you’ve successfully run through one or two zero-impact tests and proven to yourself that this Net Install image does what I said it could do, it’s time to find a volunteer.
IF YOU'RE NOT A COMPUTER GEEK, I SUGGEST YOU STAY AWAY FROM THIS INSTRUCTABLE, AS IT INCLUDES A LOT OF TECHNICAL STUFF!
AS SAID ALREADY, I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING YOU CHOOSE TO DO WITH THE KNOWLEDGE I AM PROVIDING YOU!
This is somewhat controversial because it is against the Apple EULA, but apparently you can save $140 if you’re a Tiger 10.4 user and run the 10.6 Snow Leopard upgrade without a problem.
