Anyone else do this? I do this to prevent crap from piling up in the form of unuseable chunks of data from prior deletes and such.
then i'll reinstall, upgrade the OS from apple.com reinstall the important stuff i saved and it's just like i bought the computer yesterday, all fresh and clean.
I did that a little while ago mainly because I wanted to install Linux YellowDog but it was also a good excuse to do a clean up I havent put everything back yet thinkin about upgrading yellowdog to 4.2 to see if itll work with the airport extreme card stupid brodcom not releasin thier specs to open source
ah well hopefully 4.2 has what i need after that I gotta do spring cleaning on my dell since thats where I moved most of the crap from my laptop and its almost full which aint good gotta make space for TopGear lol
