    I noticed someone has a mac Pro OS 10.6.2 as the update but mine shows 10.5.8
    Not sure why.
    My friend has the same system as mine.
    Mac pro 3,1
    Any advice
    I went to this link here

    Because the owner bought an SL Upgrade DVD for 25€?

    You can do the same...


    PS: You can't update from 10.5.8 to 10.6.2 without buying the SL Upgrade DVD, a simple download will not work.

    Mac OS X numbers its family as 10, big releases as 1-6 (currently) and the smaller updates (service packs if you want) from 0 to 11.

    So Mac OS X 10.5.8 belongs to family 10, release 5, update 8.
    Mac OS X 10.6.2 belongs to family 10, release 6, update 2.

    Updating from release to release can only be done via paying for an Upgrade or Retail version of the new release.
