No one has mentioned this but it takes 1-2 hours for the installation to upgrade from 10.1.5 and that's on a 700mhx G4 iMac!

    An even tho I had 1gb free to install I had to get rid of all the language and printer stuff to get it to go. Now after the 10.2 install ( retail ) I still have 1gb free...

    That's if you do a full install. I turned off Localized files and print drivers I did not need. Total install time took well under an hour. But it still used both disks.

    Well my copy *just* arrived (I live in the UK) and I can't wait to get started. Any advice apart from making sure there is enough space free? :cool:

    Is it still necessary to put Mail and the Utilities folder and all the rest in their Apple-approved places, to make these they get updated correctly?

    Apple's installer has been so poor about this in the past, I probably will anyway, just out of trepidation.

    But I'm curious if it still has to be done.

    I just got my copy of 10.2 this morning. Took about one hour to install on a Ti 667DVI powerbook.

    I was hoping to see smoother window scaling with this version. It still is a little "jagged" compared to OS 9.

    Still playing around with it so I'll check back later.
