run tiger in leopard

I was wondering if it is possible to run tiger while booted into leopard like how you can run windows inside of mac osx. (Not the way bootcamp works)

Not at the same time

You could put the two OS's on different partitions on the same drive but you would not be able to run them at the same time.

Having said that, I wonder if it would be possible with something like Parallels, kinda run a Virtual Machine.

Wonder why you would want to.

since Leopard is "better" than Tiger, like all new versions of OS X are supposed to be. Tiger has its ups and downs, but so does Leopard.

Why would you want to? Software compatibility? You can run some unsupported programs on Leopard, they just might crash or react poorly.

Well, there are a variety of conflicts with CS3...

... and Leopard. Enough, in fact, that if I get a new iMac anytime soon, I have already considered replacing Leopard with Tiger.

I know, I know, Leopard has some nice additional features but you got to run the software that pays the bills before considering how nifty time machine may be.

The real problem is I'm just not a cat person. I hope they name the next os something sturdy and loyal, like Brittany Spaniel, or Golden Labrador... yeah, that's the ticket.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
