What version of Mac OS X do you use? (redux)

I asked this a couple of years ago, but things might have changed since then. (Hey, look at that comment. Not quite ready for the next stable release, were we?)

Note: if relevant, select the lowest operating system version you actively play Oolite on.

Can't really use SL on an ibook caninow?
I shot him back first. That is to say, I read his mind and fired before he would have fired on me. No, sir, he wasn't a fugitive.

Nope. Intel only. My G5 is left in the dust too. :cry:

Well I have only just purchased my iMac so I am using 10.5 and have already ordered my almost free copy of SL (cost about £7), so looking forward to installing that next month when it turns up.

Well, I'm only waiting for August 28, when SL is supposed to be released.

Not quite, it seems. But I remember there was a time when we thought 1.70 would be it. :wink:

By the way: Glad to see you dropping in, Ahruman! :D

Oh, and as far as my OS is concerned: Still 10.4.11, and the comment is still valid: As soon as I return to good old Europe I'll consider upgrading to whatever it will be then (10.6? 10.7?). Most likely I'll also upgrade to a new laptop.

Oh, and it seems I'm so backwater that I don't even know what "SL" stands for. No fancy cat names again? :?:

They’re running out, though. The only big cats left are clouded leopard, Bornean clouded leopard and lion. Then there are various synonyms for ones they’ve already used: cougar, mountain lion, catamount, ounce. (they’ve already used both leopard and panther).

10.5 is DEFINITELY worth the upgrade.

I think that they should have called iPhone OS Ocelot or Lynx instead...

Also it'll sound stupid if they do: Leopard, Snow Leopard, Clouded Leopard, Bornean Clouded Leopard... Doesn't sound like a "new" os you'd pay for, does it?

If windows can use the following, then I dont think OSX should worry about consistency too much. And someone needs to teach Sun to count.

3.11, 95, 98, NT 3.51, NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Vista, 7

But those at least sound like different versions.

But Snow Leopard is a low cost upgrade to Leopard, and so it i a completely sensible name.

I dont think the next one will be called Mexican Bearded Leopard, or anything like that. If they really do run out of cats, then Im sure they can call it Hyena, or Arctic Fox or something without the world coming to an end :)

Agreed.

Wait a hyena isn't a cat? Nobody told me this! All my life I believed hyenas were cats and now you spring this on me?

surely: 3.0, 3.1, 3.11, 95, 98, NT 3.51, ME, NT 4.0, 2000, XP, Vista, 7

Although I think ME is an OS that even M$ would like to forget about (soon to be followed by Vista I'd imagine!)
