Although the update provides only a minor feature addition, it reportedly updates Mac OS X 10.4 from build 8A162 to build 8A171.

Apple probably wants to see how widespread Tiger is right now. Anyone not have a copy yet?

Hmm... I wonder how Tiger runs on that 500 MHz G3, especially considering how Panther was faster yet on older hardware than its predecessor. (I know Tiger's still deep in beta right now; just idle musings of an idle mind at this time of night...)

I'm wondering the same thing. I've got a G3/500 with 640MB RAM, and it sure would be nice to have a snappier OS -- for productivity reasons, of course. 8)

I don't and I'm actually developing apps in Cocoa / XCode. Guess us lowly online only ADC members don't count.

Oh well, I need a stable computer anyways.

I also don't, but I'm only doing photography and web design.

Or, as the ReadMe file that Software Update installed says:

The new build number will be reflected in the 'About This Mac' window once you log out and log back in.
