Apparently Apple's pretty disappointed at the relatively low OS-X adoption rate so far. So it's deal time.

OK, Vic, make a pot of java, print-out the MacWorld recommended dance steps (that Jeff posted above) and ring-in the new year with 10.2.3! (And if it turns you box into a boat anchor don't tell us. <g>)

Ken,

I thought that Apple was going to "force" people to upgrade to OSX, by working with software vendors (i.e. - new versions of software will only run in OSX).

With adoption rates dragging, Apple's having a hard time convincing certain sw developers to convert their products (particularly audio toys). It looks like Apple's new hardball strategy will be that new Macs manufactured after a certain date in 2003 will be unable to boot into OS 9.

I've been sitting here in the shop staring at the unopened Jaguar box, wondering if the yet-to-be-started projects are relegated to a long wait while I figure out what bad things happened to my MAC......

Actually, I got sidetacked by the bowl games.

:)

One more thought -- Ken, did you do a clean install?

No, Vic. I actually did an update from 10.2.2. Had no trouble whatsoever.

OK -- I was thinking of the upgrade from (good old) 10.1.5, which is what I'm stilll running. This will be my first move into the 10.2 arena. I think it was the October issue of Macworld that recommended a clean install to Jaguar.

I'm happy to report that I can still run FCP! The install went pretty well, including the updates from Apple for both Jag and FCP. I had to get a new twain driver for my Epson scanner and reload the Canon SP900 driver, but other than that, it seemed to work OK. I followed the procedures in the October Macworld, and that helped a bunch.

Now, it's on to learning the new goodies. Thanks for the words of encouragement -- when one has a couple of projects yet to be loaded, it tends to make one nervous about the possibility of spending more time getting the MAC back to normal than editing!

Cheers

Good for you, Vic! Delighted to hear that all's well. Certainly there are hazards for each software update. But on the whole this one has been painless for me and has actually produced true benefits. I think you'll find the same.
