My apologies if this has already been resolved or discussed.
I have spoken to numerous Apple employees and support people regarding if I can upgrade my Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard without having to buy the Box Set (which contains many useless programs). Apparently, Apple has conceded that it is possible and many people have said that it works great. My real concern is if whether it will effect my Applecare, etc. I would appreciate if anyone can clarify if it does in fact work and if anyone can pitch in if affect my warranty.
Thank you kindly.

Software License Agreement for SL:

Section 2A:
_Single Use License_. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, unless you have purchased a Family Pack or Upgrade license for the Apple Software,
you are granted a limited non-exclusive license to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-branded computer at a time. You
agree not to install, use or run the Apple Software on any non-Apple-branded computer, or to enable others to do so. This License does not allow the Apple
Software to exist on more than one computer at a time, and you may not make the Apple Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple
computers at the same time.
Says nothing about one's current/previous OS. It's an install, not an upgrade.
Section 2C talks about an "upgrade license", which refers to the $10 upgrade sold to people who bought their Macs after June 6th, does mention that you must have Leopard installed beforehand. This is not the case for the Single Use or Family Pack versions.
And it can't possibly void your computers warranty, since Snow Leopard didn't exist when you bought your computer.
