    I am a new user to Tiger (as in i bought it yesterday), and i have already noted a bug. For all intents and purposes, my specs are; 17" iMac 800MHz G4, 768MB SDRAM, 32MB SDVRAM, Mac OS X v 10.4.2

    When i look through folders, using any app (i've only tried on Safari and Finder), when i get to a document, picture, music file, etc. to preview it, the application I use freezes up and i have to force-quit it.

    strange thing is my laptop has Tiger installed and it doesn't get affected, but every user on the iMac does. Hmm....

    Try repairing permissions.

    I think that's the first time repair permissions has actually worked! :p

    :D

    But actually, I fixed a couple of issues on my girlfriends Pismo yesterday by repairing permissions... several of the Utilities had gotten wrong permissions, and none of them, like Terminal and Activity Monitor, would work. Now they do... ;)
