I’m fairly certain that every person who has the slightest interest whether or not I’ve upgraded my computer to Mac OS X 10.4 also reads this blog, so here’s my answer.
Yes, I have my copy of Tiger. It’s sitting on my desk at work.
No, I have not installed it yet, and it will likely not get installed until late-July at the soonest.
Two and a half months? Why?
The original reason is no longer the primary reason. Every Macintosh authority that I trust has almost unanimously agreed that it’s probably a good idea to wait until the 10.4.1 update is released. I’m siding with that precaution.
The now-primary reason is based entirely on the fact that I’ve got far too many other things going on between now and mid-July to monkey with the potential hassles of a major OS upgrade.
Those who know what I do for a living will understand when I say things like “behind schedule on publications,” “annual convocation,” and “two-week business trip to St. Louis,” not to mention my hope that an offer on a condo is accepted and I actually move in mid-June, prior to the St. Louis trip.
Those who don’t know what I do for a living can suffice to be told that that I’m simply busy as hell.
