Ask Max: Can I Upgrade from 10.2 to Tiger?

Asked on 05/26/2006:

I have an iMac G4 running OS 10.2.8. I use Office Mac 2003, GraphicConverter X4.8 and MacLinkPlus Deluxe, and some OS 9 programs. Will I experience any problems upgrading to Tiger?


You should have no problem jumping to Tiger. You will want to have 512MB of memory and you need to repair your disk permissions before you install. I would always recommend backing up your files before upgrading your OS a full version, even if for no other reason than it gives you incentive to back up, which you need to be doing anyway. After you upgrade, you should look for software updates to all your applications in case they have some compatibility fixes for Tiger.

Other than that, upgrade away!
