Big If's statement is 100% right. The most important changes between 10.5.7 and .8 are security fixes. You'll probably never have a problem with .7 but if you're concerned by running an OS with...

Well, that's enough confirmation for me of the clean install. This raises a huge question; Do we encourage the use of a $29 DVD to create Mac Minis?

Doesn't seem like fair play to me but I...

$30 is for an upgrade. It will not work for someone without a copy of Leopard.

I haven't seen a full version of Snow Leopard on sale except in the box set (which is still a great deal).
