I have a MacBook Pro with OSX 10.5.8.
How do I know if I have Tiger or Leopard?
You have Leopard
10.5 is Leopard.
10.6.* = Snow Leopard
10.5.* = Leopard
10.4.* = Tiger
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
Anyone else want to give it a go?
Let me see if I can break it down for you...
Sure why not while we are on a roll
I'll have a run at it:
10.6 Snow Leopard
10.7 House Cat
I corrected it for you
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!
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!
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.
The topic title omitted the "how do I know" part. That's where I expected a retort from...
