Several news sources are reporting that, indeed, Apple's forthcoming Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard upgrade disk will install successfully on Intel-based Macs currently running Tiger.

The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg, in his review of Snow Leopard, notes that users can save $140 when upgrading their Intel-based Macs currently running Tiger by simply purchasing the Upgrade disk for Snow Leopard. Wired confirmed Mossberg's findings and suggested users make a backup of their data from Tiger and do a clean install of Snow Leopard.
