Updating mac os 10 3 9
And even then, it may not be as well-suited for running 10.4 as it is 10.3.
I just haven't seen a pressing need to upgrade, to be honest.
For instance, you cannot run i Work 09 or i Life 08 without 10.4.11, Perian runs better in 10.4.11, and with 10.4.11, you can use Toast 9, the last pre-Leopard version of Toast.
Once you have the 10.4 disc (most of which are 10.4.3), download the 10.4.8 combo updater from Apple and you're good to go (avoid 10.4.9, it has some bugs with certain Mac models).While I agree 10.4.10 and 10.4.11 offer distinct benefits over 10.4.8, they remain problematic for many users depending on the particular Mac and what applications are installed.OSX is a constantly moving target, the damn thing has rarely ever settled for five minutes in one sedate spot, so updating to the latest rev mostly means you'll be cleaning up after the latest set of glitches.Third-party software (such as XPost Facto) can, however, override checks made during the install process; otherwise, installation or upgrades from Jaguar will fail on these older machines.Panther still supported the Classic environment fully for running older Mac OS 9 applications but made Classic application windows double-buffered, which interfered with some applications expecting to directly draw to the screen.
And of course 10.5 brings a whole other can of issues with it.
