Default Pt 7...Is the party over?

I have a G4 iMac 1 Ghz system, Tiger 10.4, 768 ram, Seagate external. I installed the PT7 update, and there is where the trouble started. I couldn't get PT to start up. I kept getting an affirmation error. I couldn't save a new file, and would get a different affirmation error. I moved the open and save files to the internal drive, but then the DAE errors started popping like crazy. I sent word to tech support about 4 days ago, but have heard nothing. Maybe they are overwhelmed with tech support problems

I decided to back out and re-install Pt 6.9.2 which was working fine. However the 6.9 re-install wouldn't work without the 6.7 install. 6.7 needed to see the Panther. So I had to wipe the drive, install 6.7, install Tiger, install 6.92, reinstall plug-ins, etc.

Now I'm PT7 phobic. I lost almost 4 days of business because of downtime. I'm thinking that the PT party is over for us G4 iMac owners. I think PT7 is a great upgrade and has a lot of possibilities, but mayb the processor is not fast enough and/or running on the edge of compatability.

I'll probably update to the new Intell iMac next month, but I'm thinking I won't go with PT on that system(at this point there is no other choice). I'll probably go with MOTU DP or Logic. It seems like they are already there with what Digi's PT 7 is trying to do.

At this point the only reason I'll keep PT around is because of client perceptions (most of my clients know nothing about recording, but somehow think that Pro Tools means something special).

It was a good ride, but I wish I hadn't spent the money/time to find this out.

Maybe someone can let me know when the upgrades will have it together.
