    When tiger first came out how long was it before apple released a .1 upgrade? Do they typically wait for months for issues to accumulate or is it reasonable to see something in a week or two?

    Also how much will things change in leopard over the next year? For instance will apple get rid of or radically change things like stacks or is that too much of a change? Did anything dramatically change cosmetically in tiger over its lifespan?

    Apple releases OS updates on the Thursday following a full moon in odd numbered months.

    These updates are programed by a tribunal of Apple Programmers that meet at an undisclosed location (*cough*STARBUCKS!*cough*) where they spend HOURS programing in a single day. These masters of their trade go by the codename M.A.C. (Men Advancing Code). A new group forms with each major release of Mac OS X. A Council reviews "applicants" and once decided, the OS can go GM. Bill Gates has inquired many times attempting to join but after seeing what has happened with Windows, he is denied time and time again...

    OK, I'm done.:p

    It seems that Panther 10.3 did the same about 2 weeks after the release. However 10.3.2 was a full 5 weeks after .1 and 10.4.2 was about 2 months after .1.

    The .2 updates may have been more significant from my recollection as the .1 usually is for stability and immediate bug fixes. The .2 updates tend to address a wider range of issues.

    They got a lot to sort out for .1.

    Might take them more than a few weeks.

    That is hardly the point I was referring too with my answer and does not have any relevance to the question posed anyway. Just because Apple released the update for Tiger in X amount of time does not mean that they will take the same amount of time to release an update for Leopard.
