Some older software or peripherals will only run under OS 9, and Classic mode extends their lifetime.
Often a Tiger-based Mac will be a secondary machine repurposed just for this task.
For that reason, I provided an overview of Mac OS X (in Chapter 2) this description of how to install the operating system, believing that most of you are already up and running in Mac OS X.
Mac OS X 10.4.11 adds RAW image decoding support for various digital cameras which include the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50, Leica V-Lux 1, Olympus E-400, Olympus EVOLT E410, Olympus EVOLT E510, and Canon EOS 40D.
The update also improves compatibility when using Open Type fonts in Quark Express, and enhances reliability when running VMWARE's Fusion virtualization software.
Leopard’s minimum RAM footprint is about twice what Tiger requires.
Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger is the fifth major release of Mac OS X (now named mac OS), Apple's desktop and server operating system for Mac computers.
On Power PC machines, Tiger is the last version of OS X that supports Classic mode, the built-in virtualizer for Mac OS 9 applications.
Using Classic mode on a Power Mac G3 or better, it is still possible to run many applications compiled for the original 680×0-based Macs as far back as the 1980s.
For all of these occasions, this chapter explains what needs to be done (and why) and offers solutions to a variety of potential problems.
I start off by providing background information on installing Mac OS X for the first time, moving on to give more general information about installing, reinstalling, and restoring Mac OS X software.
