Aside from having the latest & greatest, is there any good reason to upgrade from 9.0.4 to one of the later OS9 revisions?

none that i can see.. (for me anyways) i bought this imac with OS9 and it froze and crashed all day long, i upgraded to 9.0.4 thru apple's web site and it is rock solid and hardly ever freezes. so it is ultimately up to you. i've always subscribed to the theory "if it works, dont fix it"

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. You'll get no additional functionality on your iMac.

Over on Macworld forums there's a post with 200 responses about problems with 9.2. It makes me very wary. I am about to upgrade to Mac OSX 10.1, but will rely on dual booting into 9.1 for a while to get a lot of my work done. I think I will pass on (.2 until I know the coast is absolutely clear.

I think 9.1 is a minimum if you have any plans to use OSX 10.1

I had no complaints with 9.0.4 - that was a good one. 9.1 has been pretty decent too. Especially since when I clean installed, I ended up with a lot fewer extensions.

I agree.. I'm not especially impressed with 9.2.1 But thats what came on my iBook 600 from the factory, So I doubt I can downgrade it to 9.1. I too thought 9.0.4 was pretty good. And I think 9.1 was just as good, if not a little better. I still run 9.1 as my prefered OS on one of my other Macs.

Just my 2 MHz worth..

9.21 is evil.

Stick with 9.04 or a FULL 9.1 install.

Your machine didn't come with 9.21? Then it's not meant to run with it. For Classic use only.

If you have no problems with 9.1, use 9.1. If you are having problems, use 9.2. Always try 9.1 first though, its a lot safer and less likely to cause problems.

Only the full version; the 9.1 udpater is as bad as the 9.21 updater.
