Currently using OS X 10.4.11
What, if any, problems may be incurred by installing 10.5?

Joan,

I've been using Leopard since it came out. With the 10.5.2 update, I think Leopard is stable now. However, you'll want to make sure your programs work with Leopard.

Also, is there any reason you want Leopard? Are there new features that you really want in Leopard or do you just feel like upgrading?

The only reason for installing Leopard is to keep this computer as up to date as possible. After so many years and so many Macs that are no longer usable with newer technologies, I don't want to lose this one too soon. I've got so much stuff "stored" in old computers and can't get it all organized into one place. Maybe it's just as well that I'll have to get a new one in a year or two. Now I just need time to get everything sorted out. What do people do who have year after year of accumulated correspondence, tax records, paid bills, etc. We used to have reams of paper records filed in cabinets or boxes and stored in closets or attics. Now I just have four computers taking up desk space, holding years and years of records that I can't get to.

Joan,

I understand your situation. You aren't going to suddenly be obsolete if you chose to stay with Tiger. I know some people who buy every other upgrade. As long as you don't try to keep the same Mac for 5-7 years, you really don't have to worry about being obsolete.

As far as your older documents, you might be able to find a PDF creator program for your older Mac OS versions so that you can move your data to OS X.

One of the nice things about 10.5 is Time Machine. Its great for those of us who are too lazy to regurally back up our files. Its saved me once already.
