Tiger works great with the Pismo 500 mhz and 640 mb of RAM. <br>Need advice with mine iMac sloat loading 500 mhz, 256 mb of RAM, should I install Tiger? or keep it with 10.3.9, I donīt want to buy more RAM for a near end of live computer.<br><br><br>
Just leave it alone... Tiger doesn't offer that much more beyond eye-candy and doo-dads to the overall experience at least, not enough to bother doing what you're asking.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

I'm beginning to agree with you and I'm feeling a little let down by this update. I never indexed my hard drive back in the OS 9 days and don't see much benefit now. The difference is, you had the option to turn it off in the OS 9 days. I had to exclude one of my Firewire drives from Spotlight indexing because I couldn't eject it without restarting the computer, even after it had indexed all the info. I guess if you're a total scatterbrain and just throw files willy-nilly all over your hard drive, it has some benefit, but not for me. <br><br>Widgets? Oh great, I have another Calculator. Does it add more accurately than the old one? More clutter to get in the way of work. <br><br>Speed boost? Well, apps seem to launch a little quicker and maybe things are a little snappier but nothing that gives me cold chills and whiplash. Like Jaguar and Panther, I'm sure the .1 updates will add speed incrementally so maybe it will be worth it over the next year or two.<br><br>Instead of introducing marginally useful features to gain bragging rights over Microsoft, I wish they had devoted the last couple of years making the Finder snappier. Not that it drags on my 2.5 G5, but there's still a lot of room for improvement. This was the problem with the old pre-X OS versions; too much time devoted to adding "features" and not enough to making the basic OS function better. <br><br>Next week, I may feel totally different of course.<br><br>

Sounds like maybe the price point should have been lower - $129 for eye candy and some widgets?<br><br>Glad I'm waiting for my new machine to upgrade....<br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
Yeah....there's nothing here that is a *must have*. I am enjoying the little improvements more than the big-ticket features myself. <br><br>It all comes down to this. I was reading, and apparently Apple has like 15 million OS X users that run out and get the latest upgrades when they come out. That's a lot of cash, and I am sure the OS is a high-margin product. <br><br>"Faster finder with decent networking" isn't as exciting as "dashboard and spotlight" I guess. <br><br>

Yeah, this feature creep gets annoying after a while. Most people don't use a fourth of what the OS is capable of, so let's add more!! OSes are rapidly becoming like Microsoft Word. What more do they need to do? Word just needs to be faster and not bomb when it hits a font is doesn't like, not add five more floating palettes.<br><br>EDIT: And another thing. What's up with this friggin' Weather Widget? It says it's 36 degrees here in Atlanta and shows a picture of snow flurries. Funny thing, WeatherPop says 68 and I walked to the mailbox in my shorts in the bright sunshine. Sheeeesh!!<br>

More like Photoshop- it's already 99.999% perfect, yet they seem to come out with a new version every year like clockwork...<br><br>I think in the next version, Apple needs to go strictly according to user needs and suggestions. The reasonable ones, that is...<br><br>[color:red]5.19.05 - The 'Jedi Slaughter' tour begins!</font color=red>
The problem with the Dashboard weather widget is it uses the vastly inferior Accuweather.com for its data source. <br><br>Weather.com is far and away the best. More weather stations, more updates, more data. I use Weatherdock (freeware) which has the weather in the menubar, the dock or on the desktop if you want.<br><br><br><br>
