"And as mentioned above, saving the trouble of moving all your applications to a new machine is a big win"

Baloney! The first thing a new purchaser of a new Macintosh sees is a option to connect your old computer to the new one via firewire and synch the two systems. This is painless and complete, even copying my old Account data, grabbing my personal files in Documents Folder, and preserving my personal settings and account data in Mail and Safari. My third party apps were exactly where I put them on the old machine.

If it weren't for the new case on my AlBook-G4/1.5ghz, I wouldn't have known there was anything different. I'm a Apple tech in my area, and could have done the whole thing by hand, but the FIrewire synch feature saved me hours of setup and config time. Kudo's to Apple all around!

I think Grover Watson, (upgrade article), is in for a rude shock, Tiger does not support all the upgrades he's got on his Mac. I know from sad experience, I bought Tiger for my G3 Blue & White that has a processor upgrade - Will not load every way I tried. He's probably stuck with 10.3.9 like me.

Paul: It depends. The migration assistant moves applications and files in your home folder, but not other files. Especially if you have a lot of Unix software installed, it can be a pain to move everything.
