So I finally have the money to upgrade to LW 8, but am currently still using OS 10.2.8. Will LW 8 even run on my OS? If so, does it run well? If not, should I wait a few days to upgrade to Tiger, or would I be better off with Pather right now? Thanks for any advice.

It probably will run, but since the spec calls for a minimum of 10.3 there is no guarantee (or support).

Sounds like a bind - buy 10.3, it works fine, but then 10.4 comes out, works better and you have to pay again, or wait til 10.4 comes out, but there's a major bug -

Since I hate gambling, what I'd do is buy [8], use it on 10.2.8 and be sure to keep 7.5 around, wait until 10.4 comes out and see how it behaves with LW before buying.

i'd reccomend the same as well, it wouldn't make any sense to buy 10.3 right now when 10.4 comes out in 4 days....

No problems with LW8.2/Tiger here. Don't spend money on Panther, go directly to Tiger.

You have Tiger already? Good to know no prblms with Tiger and LW 8...can anyone report on Tiger and 7.5d?
