Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger

When Apple released Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger on April 29, 2005 for $129, it did so while taking big swings at Microsoft Windows. Tiger boasted features like Spotlight file search and more robust graphics APIs, as well as improved 64-bit support. With this release, Safari gained RSS support, Mail received a visual overhaul and PDF creation was made easier than ever thanks to a new button on the Print dialog box. Dashboard, a home for small web-based widgets was announced as well.

Tiger was the first release of OS X to support Intel-based Macs, with the release of version 10.4.4.
