“When Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger shipped in April, the rest of the media fawned over its hot new features and made you feel that Tiger was a must-have upgrade,” Bob “Dr. Mac” Levitus writes for The Houston Chronicle. “While I was impressed with many of its features, I suggested waiting for the inevitable bug-fix releases. My last words were, ‘I’ll let you know as soon as I feel that Tiger is ‘safe and sane’ for the average user. Until then, you’re probably better off without it.'”
“Four months and two minor updates later — the current release is version 10.4.2 — it’s time to take another look,” Levitus writes. So, is it safe yet? The answer is a qualified ‘maybe.’ …While the trend is moving in the right direction, I still don’t like your odds. So, if you haven’t already upgraded to Tiger, you might want to consider waiting just a little bit longer.”
