I just got an iBook [Model #M6497], it's currently working on a 9. something OS, I was wondering what would be the most recent OS I could use on it? I'm new to Mac and need a little help figuring this out.

you can install:
- Jaguar (not recommended, too old),
- Panther (10.3.9 is a good, solid version, still supported by many softwares, I provide support to several users on 10.3.9),
- or Tiger (will most likely run somewhat slower than Panther because of indexing overhead).
No leopard (processor is too old, too slow, falls below Apple's minimum for leopard.)
