On the upcoming release of OS X 10.4 [Tiger]
Authored by: seven5 on Mar 22, '05 09:22:38PM

System 10.4? Someeeeebody's an old school Mac user.

I really suggest using the word Tiger, or Os X 10.4, system 10.4 reaks of old macs from the days when it stunk up the industry. And seeing that most of the users on the site are newbs getting great insight (thats what brought me here 3 years ago :), i think it looks bad.

just my $.02

I think you might be misreading the icon. The "System" part is the general category for OS hints now. So "System 10.4" in the icon isn't supposed to be like "System 8" or "System 9". Instead, it means a "System" hint in the OS 10.4 subcategory. OTOH, that one can read it like "System 8" also seems kinda old-school cool to me. YMMV.

I remember well what a revolution System 6 was in its day, and the enthusiasm Mac users had for System 7 upon its release, then for System 8, and then for 9 as well. I never could care less what the industry thought about Macs - all I knew was that it worked for me, with more elegance than anything M$ was trying to foist on me. So speak for yourself, but some of us old school 512K Fat Mac users think a reference to System 10.4, while anachronistic, is just fine.
