I backed up and went clean on a Mac mini and MacBook Pro. I never seem to have major troubles this way.

I've performed a regular upgrade of Snow Leopard, but I'm less than impressed. For some reason, the Mini just doesn't jump to attention as quickly now.

So this weekend, I'm thinking of performing a clean install...

...of 10.5. Shocked

For the record:

I upgraded 10.5.8 on my mini and MacBook Pro. Both machines notably quicker.

I did the upgrade. I have way to much installed and don't really feel like installing things again.
