    I also am currently using 10.3.9. I have decided to wait for Leopard to come out. No sense paying for Tiger with Leopard coming out so soon.

    Save money for Ram, cuz with either Tiger or Leopard you will need to boost your G3 to its Max. 10.3.9 will run fine with what you have unless you get too app crazy and try to run too much at once. Tiger is a memory hungry beast and I imagine Leopard will be as well. Even with 1 Gig in my new iMac, I get lots of page outs. My PB with 1.5GB on the other hand never has any, so I am guessing Tiger works best somewhere right above 1GB with what I do. I need to upgrade the new iMac to 2GB shortly. I think yours runs PC100/133 ram (if it is the one in your profile ibook g3-900) and only has one slot, with another 128MB onboard, but you might want to 2Xcheck.

    It is illegal -- but again how many of us have d/l music torrents, programs, borrowed from friends, etc.? If you want tiger you can go download a torrent, there are plenty of copies of it out on the Internet.

    Is the Leopard 'beta' I see on torrent sites a fraud or is it a pre-release that wasn't for the public? Will the final version be much different or will you be able to 'update' from the beta?

    Well, the leopard torrent is an illegal copy of the beta version, which contains bugs and not all the feaures of a full finished version of leopard. Its designed for developers, so they can help sniff out the bugs.

    Did I also meantion its an Illegal copy?
