    Question Upgrading OS X on old iBook
    I have an old iBook that I want to upgrade for my daughter. Do I need to install Panther before Tiger? Will Tiger function okay with what I have.

    Current system:
    Version 10.2.8
    Memory: 256 MB
    Processor 800 MHz PowerPC G3

    No, you don't need to install Panther first. Tiger should run great, but I'd upgrade the RAM if I were you, since 256MB is the minimum required for it.
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
