Tiger, Tiger

Although I’ve purchased Apple’s new OS, Tiger, I ain’t upgrading until 10.4.1 comes out. For the braver souls who are upgrading, I did find a very useful listing of software vendors who have upgraded their applications for Tiger.
I’ve never had perfect success with upgrading an operating system as so many others (seem to) have had. The typical install for me takes 2 weeks of trepiditation and nervous stomach, 1 day of hemming and hawing, and 2 hours of teeth biting as the software loads. Then it’s about 4 hours of complete and utter FREAK-OUT, followed by 2 nights of resentment, anger, self-hatred and fear of technology and 4 days of quiet re-organization. This, in turn, is followed by general fear of OS failure for 2 months.
