| | Re: OS 6 upgrade
Well, I just did the same and I like OS/6. I did have some initial problems with my calendar/contacts but that might have been because I didn't have it configured properly to start with. I did wind up doing a security wipe after upgrading to 6 and re-installing everything but since then it's been working like a charm.
If you have a lot of applications installed you might want to do the same. I.E.
1) Perform the in-place upgrade.
2) Check to make sure everything still works the way you expect it. If not, do a security wipe (which will take it back to stock OS/6) and re-install everything.
The front-end for OS/6 has a fresh look to it - very up-to-date. There are a handful of things that differ slightly (tray usage, etc) but it's not a problem. Overall I think it's a good upgrade. Now that I have it all set up and running I think I'll be able to leave it alone for awhile and just use it.
