    I'm still using Panther. I tried Tiger for like... 30 minutes, but I quickly went back. Too many bugs still.

    No problems here. Only program that crashes is Firefox and occasionally Extensis Suitcase (but that's because of font issues).

    Did you guys upgrade or clean install it? I got mine preinstalled when I ordered the G5.

    My mac has crashed three times in the three years I've had it. Once with 10.2 and twice already with tiger.

    I haven't had any problems with apps other than the G4 optimized Firefox 1.0.4, but I just moved over to a regular Firefox build until the G4 build is more stable.

    Safari crashed a few times for me in Panther and a few times in Tiger, still worth the upgrade IMO.

    Mine never crashes... the only bugginess I've had is with the new Cisco VPN client that was released in-a-hurry for Tiger because of all the people complaining. It crashes once in a while on startup, and I just have to restart it.

    Only Safari crashes for me. And, that bug is not NEARLY worth losing all the other features of Tiger by going back to Panther. Sorry, some bugs in a new release does not make it a "piece of shit". If you really hate it, do a clean install of Panther.
