I would, of course, like to install it immediately. :-)  The only thing 
that would stop me would be not being able to use TeX. With that in 
mind ...

Has anyone tested Gerben's current installer and distribution with 
Tiger? If so, will it all work as before and is there anything I should 
be aware of?

In addition, has anyone used TeXShop with Tiger? Are there any issues 

Thank you,
