    I'm running Tiger on my Macbook. How about you?

    Give me a minute to get the poll up...

    Okay, up!

    Leopard on my MBP. Why still Tiger? Money, or other reasons?

    Tiger on a TiBook 667 Mhz. I think the minimum specs for Leopard are more than my computer has. :)

    Leopard - MacBook
    Panther - Pismo
    Tiger - iBook G4

    Each serve their own little purpose, though Tiger is my fave. :apple:

    What makes you favor Tiger over Leopard?

    Tiger is my fave, too. I use plenty of Leopard iMacs at work, and new Dock GUI is a bit too much, IMO. Especially since it's difficult to tell which apps are running. When I finally get a MBP, I'm modding the dock to get rid of that reflection and change the active app icon back to the little arrow :)

    If I got Leopard, I'd be doing the same things as I do now on Tiger, except it would require more memory and processing power to do it. Might as well stick with Tiger. :^)

    If you've got a desktop, you can vote based on the processor (Intel, G5/4, G3, etc). This is really for laptops, though.

    Sorry, I was dancing around my apt. :D
    I feel Tiger is more stable. Leopard, imo, is not finished, at first it operated like a Beta.


    Ooof, yeah the Leopard dock.
    Love the way it looks, just not as functional as it could be.

    my MBP came with it and it's been great! I never tried Tiger, the MBP is my first ever Mac computer.

    Both, but you don't have a choice for that. I have Leopard on my pre-SR MB at home and my Alu iMac at work, but Tiger on everything else (C2D iMac + G5 iMac).

    Classic won't ever be supported in Leopard.

    Gone. Forever. Not coming back. :D

    I guess you won't be upgrading then.

    I have Leopard on a 12" 1.5GHz PB. I loved Tiger because it was very stable but I really love Spaces, Time Machine (already saved me) and automatic networking in Finder. While, at times, it can run a bit slow on my system, it runs beautifully on my wife's MB.
