    Office Software will remain intact.

    I upgraded from OS 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard and all my Microsoft Office 2004 and Adobe CS3 programs continue to work.

    For myself, I installed Snow Leopard on a freshly formatted partition and during the installation I had the opportunity to import all my settings, files and/or applications. This way I have TWO start up disks. One with Snow Leopard, the other with OS 10.4.11 in case I have to go back to old system if something doesn't work quite right.

    I upgraded a few months ago. But today I notice that Word 2004 does not always want to create a new document or open a document when you select those items from the File menu or by keyboard shortcut. However, Word documents do open when double clicked.
