    Does anyone use anything less than 10.5 Leopard? (10.4 and below) Just curious. I still use 10.2 Jaguar! (the only reason is because it came with the snow iBook G3 I just bought). If you do post some screenshots maybe. :):apple:

    Some of us have Macs that won't run Leopard.

    My TiBook G4 800 Mhz won't run Leopard. Tiger is fine.

    iMac runs Tiger, don't feel like installing it because I will upgrade it soon.

    My MB came with Tiger and I haven't seen enough of a reason to upgrade it. My iMac has Leopard, though.

    On my PowerBook (which was sold a month ago), I ran tiger for a few months (extremely stable), but I missed Leopard's features way too much and upgraded it. I've been using Leopard since the day it was released, I have a hard time using the older OS's because of things like Quick Look, etc.

    My iBook G4 came with Leopard when I bought it, but I downgraded to Tiger. IMHO, it's much more stable, faster and easier to use then Leopard. I'll probably use Tiger until I'm absolutely forced to upgrade to something newer.

    I can see how it might be faster, but I've found Leopard equally stable… and how is Tiger any easier to use?

    iMacG5 runs Tiger. Came with it and for e-mail iTunes, word processing (hope to make an iMovie) and GarageBand, it's fine.
    iBook clamshell 366 runs OSX server v10.4.11. It came with it but it is slow so I might downgrade:D:apple:

    Still running Tiger here, haven't been able to justify the additional cost for my needs. I will upgrade my hardware once Snow Leopard comes out so I get 10.6 with it.

    My MBP came with Leopard, and it's been fine. I'd prefer Tiger just because it pisses the luddite in me off to see that my OS is taking a gig and a quarter of RAM with nothing else running, but whatever.

    9.2.2 on Bondi iMac, soon to take a back seat. There is something about using an old machine.

    i'm still using 10.4.8, which came with chipper (macbook) two years ago, and it's good enough for my needs, although i was tempted to get leopard when it came out, but went against it. i know apple and other developers will probably drop tiger support when 10.6 comes out, so i may upgrade to 10.6 at that point.

    My iMac runs leopard, but my PowerBook runs Panther and hopefully tiger in the future.

    Still using Tiger. I originally planned to upgrade to Leopard when it came out, but then again I had been counting on getting it at the traditional $69 Student price (what a time for :apple: to slash the discount to almost nothing :confused:). My school doesn't carry OS X in its bookstore so no $69 discount price for me. If Snow Leopard weren't now so close to release I'd probably have bought Leopard a few months ago anyway. I do plan on upgrading to Snowy (as I affectionately call Snow Leopard) when it comes out, though.

    My Powerbook runs Tiger. However, if the hard drive hadn't given out and the apple person hadn't installed a new HD w/Tiger the it would probably still be running Panther. Oh, and they left me a copy of Tiger as well :D

    I'm running Tiger on my second computer as I only have one Leopard licence. Nothing wrong with it :)

    I was about to go back to Tiger on my PowerBook (it was on Leopard) but gave it to my dad instead and got a new MB. I didn't notice any real performance loss or increase on Leopard and I would have missed the way it handles networks better.

    I have tiger on a snow imac g3 of mine i use to mainly play music off of to the receiver. It does most basic things quite well surprisingly. I dug it out of an attic of an uncles house and it wouldn't boot, so it became my project computer, maxed out everything for fun. Its been running great for almost a year now, MBP has leopard though.

    older?

    Seems like a lot of people still run Tiger. Anyone still running 10.2 on something? OS9? (I know these are obsolete OSs, I am just curious)
