I'm on 10.3.9 too, and I'm not about to buy 10.4 with 10.5 coming out soon.

What OS are you running?


10.4, I believe its Tiger. I understand Leopard is on the way... I love that. Microsoft gives you "Vista"... Mac gives you Tiger, Leopard, Panther... Macintosh is truly King of the jungle. }:-)

Aren't those names awful? I mean, would you have any idea which actually came first and last if you didn't have it explained to you explicitly? They should have gone with size progressions: kitten, cat, puma, tiger, lion, saber-tooth. That makes more sense...

I think. X-I

We're still on 10.3.9, and my wife hates it. There's always some widget or some program she wants that needs 10.4, but I know that 10.5 is coming out soon, so I refuse to shell out the bucks. We'll upgrade at that time.


You know, maybe it was just the computer store I was at, but I was told if you paid the $60 to upgrade to 10.4 you get the upgrade to 10.5 for free when it comes out. Come to think of it, I may have even read that on the Apple website somewhere. Maybe worth looking into for you, Sluggs.

Saber-Tooth Tiger.. that would be awesome. :-D

Seriously, I had that typed out earlier this afternoon and didn't post it thinking better of it.

Maybe I should have posted it after all... :-?

Remember this good ol' joke:

Speaking at a recent computer expo, Bill Gates compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with technology the way the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that get 1000 miles to the gallon."

This prompted one skeptic to suggest that General Motors issue a press statement stating that if GM had developed its automotive technologies according to prevailing computer industry standards, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

1. For no reason whatsoever your car would crash twice a day.

2. Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.

3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart and drive on.

4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to start, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

5. Only one person at a time could use the car, unless you bought "Car98" or "CarNT". And you would have to buy more seats.

6. Apple would make a car that was powered by the sun, absolutely reliable, five times as fast, and twice as easy to drive, but would only run on 5 percent of the roads.

7. The oil, water temperature and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single "General Car Fault" warning light.

8. New seats would force everyone to have the same size rear end.

9. The air bag system would say "Are you sure?" before going off.

10. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in unless you simultaneously lift the door handle, turn the key and grab hold of the radio antenna.

11. GM would require all car buyers to also purchase a deluxe set of Rand McNally road maps (now a GM subsidiary), even though they neither need them nor want them. Attempting to delete this option would immediately cause the cars performance to diminish by 50% or more. Moreover, GM would become a target for investigation by the Justice Department.

12. Every time GM introduced a new model, car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as on the old car.

13. You'd press the "START" button to shut off the engine.
