Hi Bruno:

Sorry to hear you are not happy w/Tiger.  I 
myself haven't installed it on my machines as I 
am waiting for a few of the bugs to settle. 
Nevertheless, I thought I'd offer a suggestion: 
did you upgrade to Tiger or did you do a fresh 
install?  In my experience with previous versions 
and from what I hear/read of other's experiences, 
many folks with usability problems with their 
upgrades find these solved when they  do a clean 
install.  Of course this is inconvenient and 
takes time, but before you abandon ship or give 
up on Tiger, you owe yourself the "experiment" of 
a clean install.

If you decide to do this, one way to make it 
easier is to make sure all of your documents, 
pictures, bookmarks, etc. are in your Home 
directory.  Back this directory up (more than 
once), then wipe the drive and do a clean install 
of Tiger.  It is a big help if you use the same 
User name and password for your new install. 
After you have Tiger installed, simply move the 
contents of your Backed up Home to your new Tiger 

If you are interested, don't hesitate to drop a 
line and I'll send you more detailed instructions 
off line.
