I upgraded from Leopard to Tiger without and installation problems. No compatibility issues, and started up running from the beginning and still has not crashed. The general configuration is very simple, this is why I bought the upgrade from Leopard to Tiger because of the new user interface. The manual is clear and sufficient providing an overview for all the new features available on Tiger for the Mac.
I am running Tiger on a G4 17" Powerbook with an Intel processor. The software works correctly with this configuration and has never faulted me by crashing loosing memory once. I am getting excellent performance with minimal unexpected application failures and fast processing speed to keep applications running smoothly. This is stable software, it is not the newest software Apple has, but it is trustworthy and has not crashed on my once which I am forever thankful for. Tiger is a reliable running system.
I have been using Tiger for 4 years now, and haven't once though about updating to the newer versions of Mac platforms. What I like the most is all the applications Tiger comes with like iTunes, iMovie, and Garageband which make creating multimedia simple. I use the applications daily in my life and feel like the help me accomplish life goals. What I dislike about the running system Tiger is nothing. I have all of the tools to be helpful and whenever a problem comes about, the online help or manual have always solved the situation. I was running Leopard before Tiger and upgraded to Tiger when I saw the ease of the new running system. I bought the software for 100 US dollars at a licensed Apple store with a student University discount. I love Tiger and Mac computers and don't see myself updating to their newer running software.
Installing Mac OS never a problem. This is the "click next".
I use it mainly on two G4 and performance are very good. All times on the Macbook, Tiger was the installed version by default. I Snow Leopard prefers for its fluidity.
If it is not very stable and less winded than Leopard. The OS can run with 256MB of memory, but 1GB bring much comfort.
I use it mostly on a G4 Dual 1.25 GHz with 2GB of RAM and it's perfect.
For some years I use. It's getting very old and unusable over time. On an Intel Mac it is always possible it install Firefox and Flash, which makes it usable on the Web, but it is very difficult or impossible with a PPC.
I put the note for use in 2013, which has little interest, except when you want to keep the old PPC for one reason or another.

Perfect fit, never seen, always better from Apple.
You can choose to do a clean install, then format and install. You can also rcuprer via a Firewire to your account on another Mac, install the APRS System.
The big news is the archive option. The installer archive all your documents and applications, formats the disk, installs and rincorpore The elements place, magical!
Otherwise, you can put a single day, which does not seem problmatique for this new OS.
Manuel? No need.
Computer: iMac G4 800Mhz, 256MB RAM, 80GB HDD
No worries, the Systm ractif seems a bit more than 10.3, for against a G5 is amazing, powerful trs (long live the 64-bit).
A board all of the same, arm you memory. I plan to spend 1 GB, because the vacuum pump Systm about 100MB, but my applications are demanding trs.
I use it for marketing, I'm really happy.
For music, the Core Audio seems even better. It is possible to create the network of Midi instruments very easy, sharing computers ... I have not completely understood, but apparently was killed.
Basically, the Systm is more stable and intuitive, including network configurations, yet most advanced and simple.
I had OS X.2, and X.3, and although it is the best, no problem.
For new kinds of Spotlight, Dashboard, Automator ... I invite you to visit the Apple website.
In 2007, OS X.5 "Leopard", a dchirer should, because every time it's better, but I do not know what to do more.
