    I doubt that, we will see other small updates before 10.3 .

    We haven't heard of lots of 10.3 rumors and when it is coming... it might be a while.

    I think that there will be one more in June or July to hold us until the end of September when they release 10.3.

    Then, hopefully, 10.3.1 will come swiftly along to correct those problems 10.3 introduces. :)

    i like mettalicpenguins logic and i am enclined to follow similar lines of nonsense. therefore i change my speculative opinion to that in line with the metal penguin: because 10.0.x went to 10.0.4 and 10.1.x went to 10.1.5 10.2.x will obviously go to 10.2.6!!!!

    A rounding error causes us to jump directly to 10.2.6?

    Oh, maybe not then.

    Random speculation...

    I'd back-up your hard drive. At school we had an iMac that was scratching its hard drive and the next day it died.

    10.2.5 = Most Likely

    Given the amount of problems introduced by 10.2.4, not to mention long standing 10.2.x bugs, glitches and omissions, I am going to summon up a little audacity and guess that there will be an update and it will come within a month.
    Whether it is labeled as 10.2.5 or 10.2.4.5 is irrelevant. There is a large number of people who are understandably upset with Apple about 10.2.4. The biggest of these seems to be that the upgrade is draining the battery on the iBooks and the CMOS battery on some Power Macs. The disconnecting dialups and the date problems seem to be pretty annoying.
    Then of course there is everybody's favorite: the fix_prebinding feature.... err, bug... err... <beachball keeps on spinning>

    That solves a lot of my problems, I hope Apple releases it soon.

    But I still want multi-speaker sound support. Also does anyone know if joypads work in OS X, I have not tried them since 10.1.3 .

    I've got a roommate who's always scratching his butt, do you think he'll die too?

    No offense, man, but after looking at your signature, it sounds like you have some problems as well. :)

    Seriously, though, I agree on the back-up issue. If you are going to get another replacement internal drive, you may want to use an IBM above all else. I know people gathering more negatives about, say, Segate than positives.

    did i just hear you reconmend an ibm drive as reliable? this requires a little clarification i think... =) if reliability is really your thing, don't get a deskstar. you can probably trust the other models, but deskstars are notoriously short lifed and unreliable. they are cheap though. so what do you expect.

    i would trust the other models however, such as ibm's newer 120gb 09N4249 (it doesn't have a code name which i find strange)

    anyway, yeah. ibm..... is not exactly #1, though i use them. because they are the most affordable.

    10.2.5 is at 6L11 and should end around 6D42.

    10.2.6 will be the last build for the jaguar series. then we will be in a wait for 10.3.

    mac15,
    why do you say there will be a 10.2.6? thinksecret seems to think 10.2.5 will be it until 10.3

    If there is enough bugs to fix and a big enough time frame between OS update I see a big reason for an update to 10.2.6
