    I have a MacBook Pro with OSX 10.5.8.

    How do I know if I have Tiger or Leopard?

    I think that's a genuine question so I will give it a genuine answer!

    10.4.x is Tiger
    10.5.x is Leopard
    10.6.x is Snow Leopard

    Look on the disc that came with it. Not on the physical disc, if it's a grey one. Insert it, open the Instructions folder and you'll see a pdf called Welcome to Leopard. If the disc is black, it might say Leopard on the physical disc.(?)

    People, read the question again! ;)

    interesting

    You purchased a MB Pro (or received as a gift) and do not know the latest OS's from Apple?

    I am not being a Smart Alick, but this is simply intriguing. Perhaps the computer was a gift so you were not familiar with Apple prior to your receipt of the computer.

    Please, no snitty responses to this. We are in a day and age now where you cannot ask critical or insightful questions since everyone has an ax to grind. If you don't want to answer, then don't answer, else provide a cordial, thoughtful response as the question is a thoughtful one.

    What if s/he looks at a disc that wasn't loaded on the computer or if it was bought with Tiger and then upgraded to Leopard?

    S/he says it is running 10.5.8, so it is Leopard. Why overcomplicate this?

    /sarcasm/ I'm glad to see no one gave this person a hard time...

    In all reality, the majority of people in the world aren't as Mac-literate as the least of question-answers on Macrumors. Seems strange to us, yes, but for others... well... most don't care what OS their computer is running, as long as it just works...

    Hey, that's make a great commercial! :D

    EDIT: Though it is a bit curious when you look at eddyq's other posts...

    My guess is that you failed to notice the ;) in my post. :rolleyes:

    The topic title omitted the "how do I know" part. That's where I expected a retort from...
