    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:

    Any flavor of 10.4 (10.4.10 is the most recent version) is code-named Tiger.

    Read more details on OS X here.

    Mac OS X 10.0 (Cheetah)
    Mac OS X 10.1 (Puma)
    Mac OS X 10.2 (Jaguar)
    Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther)
    Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)
    Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

    Edit: Argh...just a millisecond too slow. :p

    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
