    AppleTV probably requires it.

    OS updates from Apple always result in a slow reboot (caches cleared, updates being made, whatever?there are numerous reasons; the second restart should be much faster). Furthermore, the double-reboot is also normal in many updates. If you read the documentation that goes along with the updates you will usually see these things mentioned.



    In fact, many bugs you see after an update vanish after your next reboot (if you even see any). I reboot a second time myself before I do anything just to avoid the hassle. I can?t remember a single time in all my Apple history that I?ve suffered a crash or major problem after an update, either, but I know a lot of this has to do with my avoidance of third-party OS-altering utilities.



    Updating now, we?ll see how it goes.

    I can't believe I get to post this after 7 years!

    Update was smooth. First reboot afterward was slow (normal) and OS loaded a little oddly (normal). Rebooted my second time and everything works great. Applications seem to load a bit faster but if I hadn?t read that this is an attribute of this update I might not have noticed it. Photoshop CS2 still takes an eternity, CS3 seemed a bit faster (but hey, it was already fast?Intel processor). Just repaired my permissions. Back to work.

    Adobe probably has close to the master copy.



    Unless they start using some actual Leopard technology - like Core Animation, it is doubtful they will win anything, except for "It's about fucking time you finished it" award.

    Does it fix the iCal alert position bug? Many have experienced this weirdness - the alerts pop up off the right side of the screen (sometimes the left with certain computers) with only a small amount of the alert window visible. It started with 10.4.8

    According to multiple replies on TUAW it does fix this particular issue.

    That certainly is weird. If this happened to me, I would (1) reinstall Tiger from the DVD, (2) Run "Repair Permissions" in Disk Utility, (3) download and install the 10.4.9 combo updater, and (4) Repeat Step 2.

    I, too, have had exceptionally good luck updating my operating system over the years; and I, too, believe that avoiding most third-party add-ons is at least partly responsible. My philosophy is that computers are intrinsically so complex that anything you can do to simplify (that is, not to add even more complexity) is worth doing.

    Thank goodness for the eject key thing. I'm constantly accidentally ejecting disks by accident. It's right above the delete key so it's easy to do.

    the update forced a (time consuming) re-validation of my 166 AU plugins in logic (and probably in sountrack pro too)... \ fingers crossed none of my favourites now failed the test! \

    Yes, according to this very interesting tech-note http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304821 which is linked in the article.

    Resolves an issue in which iCal reminders may appear off to the side of the screen.

    I just did and now Protools won't run on my Macbook. It will bounce once and stop... nothing else happens. What we have here is a total failure on someones part. They had better address this quickly.

    Seems like there are quite a few people with this happening. Starting a couple of weeks ago, when I close the lid the computer doesn't actually go to sleep. I would open it up to find the palmrests really hot and the battery drained. I've been using the apple menu to put it to sleep before I close it and that works, but I'd really like an official fix for this. Anyone else on AI with a MBP having these problems?



    Maybe 10.4.9 will take care of it.



    Crosses fingers, crosses self and hits "download"...



    here we go!



    I've been getting this on my Macbook (Core Duo); the palm rest is hot and the fans are blowing HOT air.

    Is it just me or are the MacBook Pro internal speakers LOUDER now?

    Well this nice to see. Now it's really obvious that Tiger is on it's way out. RIP tiger, you were good to me while you were around, you will probably not be missed though if leopard is everything they say. Rest easy OSX 10.4
