Some of us can't afford a nice new speedy G5, I'm still running 10.1.5 on a 350MHz G3 Blueberry. The Gig of ram and speedy new 60GB HD help, but I don't know that I could run 10.2 or 10.3 on this iMac. I'll upgrade my OS when I upgrade my hardware (and at current Mac prices, that could be another year).

Actually, for having upgraded an old Lime 2nd gen iMac (was it a 266MHz inside? can't remember) with 6gig of Hd and 196meg of RAM from 10.1 to 10.2 then to 10.3, I can assure you that 10.3 IS the best OS of the all three. So go ahead, jump in, and you'll see it gets snappier and feels better (and with RAM and HD you have, you'd be feeling very good).
No need for a G5, rest assured.

I'm typing this on a G4/400 with 512 MB RAM running OS X 10.3.2. It runs fine, even if it's not the fastest Mac in the sea.

My G4/466 with 1 GB runs 10.3.2 even better! So you don't need a new G5 to run Panther.

And for all your Jaguar users on older hardware... the upgrade to Panther is well worth it, as it runs faster on older hardware.
