This isn't complicated. 2020 is a referendum on Trump.

To upgrade an old computer, do you need to install each software upgrade
or just the lastest that you want/need?

This one is specifically an old iMac.

Someone gave it to me. He said it had OS 10.4 - Tiger, but it has 10.2 - Puma?.
I would like it to be as new as possible, which is 10.5 - Leopard
(before they made the OS to be specifically for the newer ones with Intel processors).


Go firgure the wierd order of cats Apple used for the names of the software.
Technically, they used Moutain Lion twice, sicne that's what a Puma is.
Tigers are bigger than Lion, so they should have come after,
but Lions are certainly bigger, badder & better than mountain lions.
And if they needed something to come after Lion & Tiger, they
could have done Liger (or Tion). Oh well, what's in a name?

America is plagued with an epidemic
of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
D-K affects nearly every family.

You have to know, the real Dunning-Kruger
effects fake liberals to make them
think that they know everything.
No matter how many facts you
show them, they don't learn or accept.

Too many people are brainwashed into
believing their political party is benevolent.
While both are deep state knights & pawns.

We need outsiders like Donald Trump.

Do not confuse the Dunning-Kruger Effect
with the Dumb-Krueger Effect, started by
pseudo-psychologist to attack MAGAites.

The cure for Dumb-Krueger is knowlege!
May the facts be with you.

Go here and find out which iMac you own:

[support.apple.com]

Then go here and see which system your iMac will support (this is on the Apple site somewhere too, but this page has all of them which makes it easier to use):

[everymac.com]

Then find a copy of the system (If you're lucky it's still available in the App Store) and install it.

Thanks, but it doesn't answer the question.

Apple might lie & say you have to download each version so more products can sell.

Well they have a contact form, so we will see.

Thanks!

Dude - it's free.

Free @ apple?

Yes - free at Apple. They haven't charged for system updates in years. They only charge a fee if you want a CD or DVD disc copy sent to your house. They're basically charging you for the disc.

OK, good. But still not answering the question of if I need to do all the upgrades, or just the last one?
If you do the last one if is easier & takes up less room on the hard drive. (It's a simple question.)

Side note:
Apple's website sucks! They have gone downhill since Jobs died.

The upgrade depends on the system you already have. If you try to install the latest upgrade and it's not compatible, you'll get a message stating you can't upgrade your system to the new one.

So basically, I need to put all the OS version on my computer (iMac G4).

It has OS 10.2 currently.

So I will need to put 10.3,
then 10.4,
and last 10.5.

That will be the last cause Apple put a different processor (intel now).
And supposedly the OS won't work. moody smileysad smileyeye popping smileyangry smiley

Or you can look it up like I said and do it the way normal people do.
Re: upgrading cpuz

I will, but I wanted an unbiased opinion (unfortunately, you answered).
Re: upgrading cpuz

The Apple website is unbiased.

Unbiased? Maybe.
Messy? Definitely.
