Hi, we're new to macs and could use some advice. I'm getting my wife a new 2.0 iMac G5 17" with the bluetooth keyboard and mouse (in fact it's it's on the FedEx truck for delivery right now). We also bought the 3 year service contract (not wanting to lose the whole thing if ether monitor or motherboard should go out). I am aware that this system comes with OSX 10.4 (Tiger) pre-installed. My question (and concern) is weather it might not be better to buy 10.3 (Panther) and run it for six months or so. Panther (from what I've read) seems stable and a gradual progression from 10.0. Everyone seems to know and understand it. Tiger, on the other hand, seems a radical leap forward. It's programmers also seem to have taken a "crash" course in system security from Microsoft! It's REALLY hard to imagine how the Dashboard "hole" could have slipped by unnoticed. This is exactly the kind of thing we were fed-up with Microsoft about! (Well, that and product activation) It also smacks of the Microsoft philosophy of using paying customers as Beta Testers. OK, <Rant OFF> Anyway, what do you think? With a safe, stable system as our goal, would we be better off with Panther? At least for a while? Thanks! PS: Oh, and can we still get Panther direct from Apple? I don't see it anywhere.
