Max Apple X10.4

by taboma / October 24, 2005 3:14 PM PDT

Pete, Went to recently and viewed all the latest feedbacks concerning X10.4. (Tiger).
I just purchased it and was wondering about the new patches.
Were all the buggs fixed? What was all the hype concerning certain apps not opening? What apps by the way?
I will be having a clean-install done with the OS 10.4 by a new IT person that I know.
He will partition the hard drive for my Classic applications as well.

Peter, how do you like the new Tiger V/S the last
Panther OS 10.3.9 (Panther)? Worth the $129 upgrade?

Last but not least, when will Apple have a new OS release? Wonder what cat's name it be called?

Is worth the upgrade.
The system is more stable than the last one, loads faster and has greater functionality.
Apply all the patches and all will be well. I don't recall any hype about programs not opening. I did not have any problems with my upgrade.
At this stage of the game, I would have thought that you would have finished using any OS 9 applications. OS X has been around for 5 years now. Isn't it time that you took advantage of it and stopped using OS 9 at all. What applications do you consider to be essential and that do not exist in X?
New OS release, Leopard, is due late 2006 early 2007. Around about the same time as Hastalavista
How Mac savvy is the new IT guy?
Right now you are scaring me with some of your comments about this upgrade

Pete, I was referring to the reviews from commenting on apps or programs not opening with Tiger and early bugs reported. Check on the reviews and how Tiger was rated. I undestand that there are two upgrades that should fix the early bugs. Also comments that the upgrade was not worth $129 and grumbles concerning the upgrade was on a DVD.

I use classic with Adobe Illustrator V6 (my Vector effects works with V6, not V9) as well as Adobe Photoshop V6. If I had gobs of money I would update to the CS versions. Right now my dribbles of money went toward the new OS X 10.4, a new 250 gig LaCie external hard drive, LaCie external d2 DVD RW drive, Belkin Firewire 800 3-port hub along with a 4-port USB-2 hub, Tango 2.0 combo card (that you suggested), and another 512 of ram. Whew! I am out of breath and also money for a while.

At work we are going to Quark 6.5 very soon and to Quark V7 when released next year.
Adobe InDesign made a presentation to our company also.
The totally new design of Quark V7 was what really impressed our company.

My new IT person works with Macs and will do all the work for our company to upgrade to G-4s, G-5s and Tiger. Along with new software designed to track jobs and related eps files. The person is new and I was lucky to team up with him. I called his boss, who I am friendly with. That's why this new Mac person was recommended to me.

Next year you are in charge of upgrading to Leopard and telling us all about it on a first-hand basis.

Hastalavista? One of our friends is convinced that Apple will concentrate on their music business rather than new software in the future.

Thanks Pete,

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
