OSX Upgrade - Mac Applications & Software

Another question y'all... I've got OSX 10.0.4 running on my PowerBook and I like it pretty well. However, in looking for drivers for some of my toys, I've found you can get drivers for OS 8.x to 9.2.2 and 10.1 to whatever is the latest offering. Has 10.0 just been left out or can the 10.1 drivers work? Also... is the upgrade route to 10.1, 10.2, etc.. a downloadable option or do these have to be purchased separately? Thanks a bunch, Amanda...

    10.0.x was very preliminary and buggy and a lot of stuff doesn't work
    with it. If it's omitted from the list, that's deliberate; the stuff
    you're looking at doesn't work with it.
     

    To 10.1, it's free. To 10.2 (Jaguar) is a paid upgrade. To 10.3 (Panther,
    coming soon) will be another paid upgrade. You might like to wait and
    just upgrade to Panther directly. You will be in heaven; compared to
    Panther, 10.0.x will seem very slow and clumsy to you. m.

    Upto 10.1.5 is a free upgrade. 10.2 (Jaguar) is a paid upgrade, and then
    its free upto 10.2.x (we're at 10.2.6 right now). 10.3 (Panther) will be
    a paid upgrade, and its right around the corner. If I were you, I would
    upgrade to 10.1.5, and wait for Panther.

    I agree with Bev's advice, but the catch is finding the 10.1 upgrade,
    since it was only available on CD, not by download. There was a time
    when you could get the CD free from Apple vendors, such as CompUSA, but
    I'm not sure how you'd get it now.

    Thanks for the information Bev...
    I'll prolly shop around E-Bay for 10.2.something. I've looked all over and
    can't locate a 10.1.anything. 'Sides it'll be a few weeks before I can do
    much more with the PB, I only have the original 4Gb hard drive in it for
    now. :(

    10.1 is a free upgrade, if you can find the CD; it's too large for a
    download. The incrimental dot-upgrades to 10.1 are free downloads.

    I probably have the 10.1 upgrade CD somewhere in the mess I call an
    office; I can mail it to you if I can find it. I don't need it any more.

    10.2 is not a free upgrade, but I wouldn't bother with it at this date;
    if you're going to upgrade that far, wait a few months and get 10.3
    (Panther).

    Strictly hypothetically, there might be one or two people out there
    who might have a CD of 10.1, and, again this is only a distant possibility,
    who might also have a CD burner, and if the original poster were to
    email them privately, who knows, she might get a duplicate mailed to
    her office. But this is all hypothetical, of course.
