I still use Tiger. Even though Leopard is faster or so it seems... only Tiger gives me QE because i have an old ATI x600. I don't mind Tiger except that almost no applications support it anymore. I have to spend a while hunting for older versions of apps to use.

I'm downloading Tiger 10.4.8 right now! I hope everything is going to be ok with this installation :( crossing fingers...

 

 

@Nigh7Ang3l Yes, there is a tutorial right here, in this forum, but don't remember exactly where, but is very easy to do (something like change the version number inside a plist).

Are you using Jas? If yes then google "Jas 10.4.8 to 10.4.11"

i've been usig mac osx 86 10.4.8 for a year now on HP nx6110 laptop. Everything works, no issues.

i have replaced the Celeron 1.5 mhz processor with a Pentium M 1.86 to get a better speed.

i'm not running mac anymore on my laptop, my hardware is a little bit old, and even 10.4.x it's a bit laggy, applications hang ... but now i'm thinking about buying an old mac book (maybe a g4), just for the love of this great os.

I am still using MacOS Tiger because of fast GUI. Leo etc work well on my hardware, but Logic8/Logic9 slow as hell in new MacOS's. It's not about video card. It's about software.

Me, for instance.

 

Tiger is a very good choice if you want to start the hackintosh adventure. I recomend the Chaos version Test5 ( from netkas) with a P35-DSx, X48-DSx Gigabyte mobo, and ATI HD 2600 (PRO or XT) as a video card.

 

Good luck

Well... I'm trying to run 10.4.6 on a Dell D620, but lack of sound (despite repeated attempts and a variety of recommended "fixes") and lack of network access (onboard Broadcom chipset refuses to be recognized, despite everything I've tried) make it, at most, a pretty paperweight. OTOH, Ubuntu 11 installed on the same laptop, no problem, very quick, and EVERYTHING WORKS! OS X may be a nice OS (and I have used my son's iMac a bit, and it's OK) but the hackintosh route is just too hardware sensitive, in my very limited experience. Perhaps later I'll try a later OS version (Leopard or Snow Leopard) and see what happens.

I have Tiger on a Dell Latitude X300. It seems faster on Tiger than on Leopard. No QE/CI anywhere though, and not much WiFi or ethernet. I want to install 10.4.11 on it though. I have 10.4.11 on an external HDD on my MacBook Pro, with everything working except multitouch (pretty good considering my MBP came with Leopard).

I always keep a Tiger install around, but I have it currently installed on at least 4-5 different machines. It remains my favorite OS X flavor even to this day.

 

Besides, if it wasn't for Tiger, no hackintosh would exist after all. So yeah I use it quite regularly, especially for Disk Utility, which IMO works better than on the newer cats.
