Mac OS X Tiger (version 10.4) was the fifth major release of Mac OS desktop and server operating system for Mac computers,  released  on April 29, 2005, as the successor to Mac OS X 10.3 Panther. New features included a fast searching system called Spotlight, a new version of the Safari web browser, Dashboard, and improved support for 64-bit addressing on Power Mac G5s. 

It was included with all new Macs, and available as an upgrade for existing Mac OS X users. The server edition, Mac OS X Server 10.4, was also available for some Macintosh product lines. 

Apple announced a transition to Intel x86 processors during Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger's lifetime, making it the first Apple operating system to work on Apple–Intel architecture machines. The original Apple TV, released in March 2007, shipped with a customized version of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger branded "Apple TV OS" that replaced the usual GUI with an updated version of Front Row.
