    Cool
    Here your solution. If the current operating system is working just fine for you. Then you don't have to upgrade. If you want the latest and greatest software and it need the latest operating system to run then you upgrade. I don't see an problem. I see other vendors or operating systems, i.e. sgi, Sun, IBM and HP, just to name a few that do the same thing.

    I believe that Apple is working on a better operating system, becuase the hardware is getting better.

    Really... and longhorn planning a bloat-o-matic system MEGA hog 6 - 7 ghz just to run??? That is so dismal they may as well quit the whole idea altogether! But that's just my 2 cents!

    I have an Mac SE30 that is running OS 7.5.5 and working fine with it. I also have a G3 that is running OS X 10.1.5 just fine. My wife's iBook is running OS X 10.1.5 and she is okay with it. One day I will upgrade it. My Ti PowerBook is running OS X 10.3.3 with no problems. Of my four system three don't need to be upgraded. On my system I tend to install the latest and greatest, since I am a system administrator.

    It's things like this that make me smile every time I think of Apple and Mac OS -- I really wanna get a low end Mac at say, OS 7 - 8 or so just to have it... This is all I'm doing with my pc running naught but Linux Red Hat

    Apple didn't "make" anyone upgrade to Panther. Jaguar is still a perfectly functional and well-supported version of OS X, but many people were willing to spend the money for Panther's various benefits, which, though some are small or minor, are still far more than you listed. The fact that Panther runs faster than Jaguar on most people's machines would probably be worth the upgrade all by itself to some. Oh, and I can only hope that Apple never learns anything from M$.

    Soon, OS X will need that much to run. As well as Linux, ect. ect.

    Looking at other unix favors, I don't think Mac OS X will become that bloated.

    I don't believe that Linux will ever need the same "horsepower" to run as Winblows. My father runs Redhat 9 on a Dell GxPro 180 with 256mb of RAM. He runs GNOME quite well and has quit using his XP machine for anything except for QuickBooks Pro.

    I run RH9 on an IBM Thinkpad 390e, which is a Pentium II 300mhz with 128mb of RAM. I also run in GNOME quite well and have no performance issuess.

    Finally, I run 10.2.8 on an iMac 333mhz with 288mb of RAM. It's a little slow starting up, but once it gets going it runs just fine. And it's used quite often with Photoshop 7.

    It's all a matter of perception, I guess.

    We don't even know if Longhorn will require 4-6 GHz. It's a rumor.

    In terms of updates coming out every six months as I said earlier, I stand corrected. My bad. It wasn't quite so often, but still too often. To me it's not the money that's the issue. I want one OS to last years for the simple fact that it's just way too much hassle to constantly install a new OS onto your mac. More hassle than people have time for.

    So if you are happy with the current revision of the OS, why upgrade? You can sit at the current level along as you like. Also note; as you know as the OS is upgraded old hardware is left behind, because it will not run the latest version. I look at my beige G3 powermac, it is running OS X 10.1.5. I don't have any problems with it. I have jaguar and panther, but i will not load it with either, because I believe I will not be happy with the performance.

    The major upgrades that are paid upgrades (i.e. 10.0; 10.1; 10.2; and 10.3), whereas the incremental upgrades which are free (i.e. 10.0.x; 10.1.x; 10.2.x; and 10.3.x).
