      Hi Folks!

      Pardon me for saying so but the poll as worded is insufficient. I do not use 10.4 exclusively but I do have a machine, my primary machine in fact, that is not capable of running 10.5.

        Yep. Thats the situation I'm in. My primary machine is a Mac Mini
        running a 1.43 GHz G4. Its a bit faster than riding a dead horse
        though . . . quite a bit . . . :-)

        I do have two G5 boxes but one os set up as my multimedia machine
        and the other has significant reliability problems and I'm not ready to
        move to if for my day-to-day activities. And I'm not in a position to
        buy a new Intel Mac . . . though later this year I do plan on hacking
        my Acer Netbook and installing Mac OSX on it . . . :-)

          I agree, when I saw the poll I did not understand the thrust or intent. I think it should be reworded with what the intent is...
