Hello, I use a Mac Mini as my main computer. It is an Intel core duo, 1.66 GHz with Ram upgraded to 1.25 GB. Operative System Tiger 10.4.11. The system works perfectly and I never had a computer more stable. Problem is that some applications I use daily (like Voodoopad) or others I use occasionally but are important to me (like RapidWeaver) were recently upgraded to Leopard only versions. This computer will be three years old on next spring and I would like to stay with it more one or two years. So I am considering upgrading the system. But now I am wondering what can be the best option of the next three:

a) Keep Tiger until the machine is retired. This way I keep a perfectly working computer, I save some Euros, but I will wait a long time to use more recent versions of some of my favorite software.
b) Upgrade now to Leopard and keep the computer with Leopard until retiring it, or even consider Snow Leopard later. This way I change to another mature system, being Leopard now as stable as Tiger, I guess. This way I may upgrade some applications, and stay more up to date while keeping this computer.
c) Wait for Snow Leopard. I am not sure if Snow Leopard will work in this computer, or if will be as fast and stable here as Tiger, but I can wait for reviews and if, eventually, Snow Leopard is too cool for this machine I may consider to upgrade to its warmer brother (Leopard) when Snow Leopard specifications and reviews are known.

Which of these choices seems to be more adequate at this point?

Since it can still take some time for new mac mini and snow leopard to arrive, I upgraded my mini to 2 Giga Ram, bought Leopard and made a format and install (that after making 2 copies of my files). So, now I am more up to date and I can wait relaxed to more Apple news to come.

Hello wingers99, I have an online friend in Fielderstadt, that is Stuttgart south too.
I waited because I had two more computers at home and one at work with Tiger, also because Tiger never give me any trouble, that's why. And yes, Leopard is perfect too.

Filderstadt, thats where I am , small world, my mini was delivered with Tiger but when Leopard came out I just had to try it and I do not regret the change. Its very refined and it grows on you as you discover more and more.

I am an old school mac user. I used to keep the machines with the original OS. Used my first laptop (PowerBook 160) during seven years with Mac System 7.1 and my blue iMac G3 five years with Mac OS 9.0
Filderstadt looks like a nice place; calm and nicely organized. Now if you know the best chess player in Filderstadt, you probably know my friend.

small small world, but I do not play chess that well,..
I assume Snow Leopard will have more to do with things like Time machine, office stability and online integration/services, and as I am only a home user it will not bring any major changes. lot of features will be made available for older systems at a later date any way.
My first mac was a Macplus with system 6, colour classic, Performa 475, 7100, 7600, G3, Mini, mostly 2nd hand with cast off old systems. Mac Mini is only my 2nd uptodate Mac over the last nearly 20 years.

If you haven't bought Leopard yet then wait for Snow Leopard. I recently pre-ordered it from Amazon for $29.00 US. Snow Leopard strips out the code that would make it run on the Power PC platform. It SHOULD be smaller, lighter, faster, and more stable. I think more stable is what your looking for. Also Amazon's pre-order price seems like a great deal. They also offered an iLife with Snow Leopard Package for less than what Snow Leopard will sell for when its released.
