Dear all

This is probably the stupidest question ever posted. I am new to Mac & I keep hearing about Tiger & Panther & have no idea which one I am running.

When I click on :apple: it tells me I use 10.4.10 is this tiger or panther or may be something else??

Thanks

Any Variant of Mac OS X 10.4.X is called Tiger. So you are running Tiger.
Mac OS X 10.3 was called Panther,10.2 was Jaguar, etc.:apple:

10.4 is known as Tiger. The latest update is .10, thus 10.4.10 (it's "ten", not "one zero").

10.3 was Panther, .2 Jaguar
