I didn’t like the upgrade at first, but with the bug fixes and the spotlight feature. . . I changed my mind. Of course, now we’ve moved on to faster cats. . . 5 years ago

I am looking forward reopard that is next version of Mac os. 6 years ago
I like Tiger . . . I use widgets pretty regularly. But on the whole it’s not AMAZING or anything. I’m still glad I did it, though. 7 years ago
First it resulted in an inordinate amount of crashes. 10.3.9 was a rock. But I find that 10.4 crashes ALL THE TIME. I’ve repaired permissions, I’ve re-installed. It’s still a buggy, buggy platform. I recently did the update in hope that it would improve my woeful life—that just made it worse. Now, 10.4.4, won’t aknowlege my external bluetooth dongle. 10.3.9 installed it without even asking for drivers. I used to love my mac and the ease of use and security that came with it. This kind of crappiness makes me long for a PC again. 7 years ago
well, i got it when i had to replace my old, dead ibook. but i do have it now. not really as impressed as i thought i’d be though.
the new computer is good though! 7 years ago
through on this goal. I have OS X.3.9. So spending 200 to upgrade my macs did not really appeal to me (yes, I wanted to upgrade—but I wasn’t in a hurry) and I had never really run into a program that wouldn’t run on OS X.3.9, until now. My GTD software from Kinkless does not work in it’s entirety because the scripting was written for 10.4. Do I spend that kinda bank for one freaking application. 7 years ago
The first thing I noticed was how much faster it booted on my Powerbook 12-inch (1.33GHz, 1.25GB RAM, 64MB Nvidia FX Go 5200, 60GB hard disk). Finder action and web browsing were snappier than Panther too. It’s all good. And then I started to really use it.
The fan comes on almost everytime I so much as dare breathe at the screen. The underside gets uncomfotably hot, which has never been the case with Panther. And did you know that the Finder does a brilliant impression of a slug? Whenever it feels like it, too… you never can tell when the beachball’s going to pop up and stop everything.
I have since uninstalled it and gone back to Panther. Between more speed and more heat, when it comes to a mobile computer, I think the choice is obvious. Two thumbs down for Tiger’s usefulness on the go. 7 years ago
I’m just tired of spending money on my computer. 7 years ago
Maybe in 10.4.3? .4? .5? As long as Quicksilver continues working in Panther, and Tiger is unstable, Panther is my friend. 7 years ago
It’s not worth $100+, especially if you have Panther. It’s a fun piece of software though. 7 years ago
OS X Tiger is great. It improves upon an already-very-stable computer system, and adds some very useful capabilities. Dashboard and Spotlight are great. There are so many subtle aspects of Tiger that contribute toward an easy-to-use system that doesn’t get in the way like Windows. 7 years ago
Tiger is amazing in my eyes. I love dashboard and love downloading bunches of widgets for it. Spotlight is awesome too. 7 years ago
Ooops, I pre-ordered, so I’ve been using Tiger for quite some time. It’s well worth the money. 7 years ago
Worth doing but only when you end up with 1GB of memory. Tiger is MEMORY HUNGRY OUT THE ASS. 7 years ago
Actually, it’s buggy, does not include (free) iLife apps that 10.3 did, and what I thought would be the most exciting part (for me), Dashboard, is second-best to the program Apple stole it from: Konfabulator. Apple Mail cannot handle multiple accounts well. I have to manually sync to get my mail. Maybe 10.4.2 will fix this, but had I known, I would have stayed with 10.3. 7 years ago
I backed up my drive via SuperDuper!, then ran the upgrade. The only trouble I had was installing the Java developer documentation from the XCode developer tools, my custom Apache http.conf got overwritten, so brought that back, and I had to reinstall rails using the ruby on rails provided installer. 8 years ago
The hardest part about the installation was waiting for Carbon Copy Cloner to back my stuff up to my 40G Firewire drive. That took a couple of hours. The installation of Tiger was a snap, and my PowerBook seems a little more zippy. All the applications I’ve tested seem to work. Right on, right on! 8 years ago
I’m getting there, but I need more money… And possibly a new Mac, though my ancient iMac should be able to cope with it. 8 years ago
Dunno how much of that is 10.4-specific, and how much of that is the OS X general happiness, but anyway…. 8 years ago
Well, technically I just bought an iBook which happened to come with Tiger. (It wasn’t preinstalled, but they were kind enough to throw a copy in.) Based on my experience so far, Tiger is, like Betty Crocker in Bloom County (and, thus, like America), “Overly hyped but basically a good broad.” 8 years ago
