    Well, Panther does indeed "rock". All of the nifty features are awesome in themselves, but speed is perhaps the most worthwhile improvement. I love the speed. It makes my G4 iMac, with only 800mhz, act like the 1.25 gig G4 i played with a few months ago (i can only imagine how that 1.25 ghz behaves with panther). Even my 900 g3 ibook is fairly snappier.

    I beg the question though... How long will this last with the OS updates... How much longer before my computers can't benefit from a new OS.... And how much longer before they can't take a new OS at all :(.

    So far my computers meet all of the minimum requirements for things (accept some games), but I don't think they'll become obsolute beyond the 3 to 5 years I was hoping would expire before they did.

    Oh well. Thats progress :D

    i don't think you have to worry about that. your iMac and iBook will be useable for at least another few years yet.

    of course in a couple of years you won't be able to play the latest games, but that all part of progress, it's the same in the PC world as well.
