    The only upgrade you can make from 10.4.11 is to 10.5

    Oh it decreases? Upgrading is downgrading the version. I thought the higher the version the better. But it's the opposite?

    Doh! Thanks lol. I was wondering why this wasn't working.

    I don't get your comment. 11>8, hence 10.4.11 is newer than 10.4.8

    Don't worry, the version number are logical numbers not mathematical numbers, so it goes...

    10.4.1
    10.4.2
    10.4.3
    10.4.4
    10.4.5
    10.4.6
    10.4.7
    10.4.8
    10.4.9
    10.4.10
    10.4.11

    It took me a while to get used to it as well, then I've found it is very common in programming, so it doesn't seem as foreign as it once did.

    OK got it, anyone want to try and convince me to upgrade right away to Lepeord? lol

    I don't want to do it because I'm afraid some of my programs won't work anymore.

    Leopard has been out almost a year. Your system will likely be faster, since it has been optimized for your system. 90%+ of your Applications should work, and those that don't have free updates (at least the retail software).
