I have Limewire and when I updated it to version 5, it won't open now on my computer because it says this: This application requires Java 1.6 or later, but only the following Java versions are installed: 1.5.0, 1.4.2, 1.3.1, 1.5, 1.3, 1.4. Updating to a newer version of Mac OS X may resolve this.

I have the updated version of Tiger. Is Tiger not updating anymore to allow me to have what I need to operate newer versions of other software? Do I have to go to Leopard or something. Tiger has been doing everything I need it to do for me, but is it too outdated now or something? How do I get a newer version of java? I went to java.com and it just says to do the update, which I did, and I have the updated version of OS X. So now what?

Mac G5, Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    Java 1.6 is for Leopard/10.5.x only, you're as far as you can go in Tiger/10.4.11

    Oh that figures! Is there any real benefit to getting Leopard except maybe my limewire working? I don't know the difference between Tiger and Leopard. If I was to get Leopard, would there be any kind of other operating problems with my computer with the new operating system? And will it run with my system or would it require a bunch of updating? I'm not real computer savvy, this computer has run just fine for me with it automatically updating etc.

    I'd stick with Tiger myself...

    Leo is twice as big, Updates are twice as big, some Applications will need updating or not run.

    Need any more info?

    I think I will do just that for now at least. I really wasn't wanting to change a bunch of stuff. Now to figure out how to go back to the old version of limewire, it keeps wanting to give me the new one even when I click on the old one. Thank you.

    Good luck... or get Vuze.
