    I think that's what version we are up to now, 10.2 came with my Powerbook G4 almost exactly a year ago and I skipped 10.3 because I like to upgrade every-other update...

    I'm ready for some very cool new features though, as well as improved speed...

    I will. It looks pretty cool, plus I hate using hardware with outdated software when I know better stuff is around.

    i'm running 10.3.4 currently.

    I upgraded the mac portion of the agency I work for last year (user community of over 900 people) from OS 9 - OS 10.2.6.

    Early this year I upgraded them to 10.3.2 and just recently got them up to 10.3.4

    I haven't had any problems through out it all and I am looking forward to getting 10.4

    Do you think you could help an up-and-coming art director? :naughty:

    I am an intern for an agency here in Austin, but I'll be done with the creative program at the University of TX. come May.

    I ran the 10.4 Dev preview for a few weeks. I noticed improved speed and automater (It was still called Pipeline) was cool and so was spotlight; but it has a weird uploading bug that didn't let me upload more than 96k.

    It's going to be really nice when they clean it up. It's not as big of a jump as Jag -> Panther, but it's going to be very useful.

    On the upside, the UI looks a lot more professional. Smoother colors and just everything fits a little better. I just wish for 2 things

    1.) Let me get the fuck out of brushed metal without having to use Whiteout
    2.) Transparnt Dock out of the factory.

    update will in all likelihood be $129, I think $59 for students and educators. 10.3.x updates are free, and no one knows for sure when Tiger is coming out. I'd say summer 2005.

    How do you like the program at UT. I've sworn off going to UT because they dont care about students, just money. Nor are any of their programs really noteworthy enough to be charging the tuition they do.
