The reason this is here is timing. I had assumed/hoped that 10.4.7
would be out really soon. This message is future-proof in the sense
that the release of 10.4.7 would not make me have to change the message
and upgrade i-Installert. But 10.4.7 is still not there, hence far more
people get a request tro update while the update is not there yet.
i-Installer works fine on 10.4.6 with the latest upgrades (esp.
QuickTime 7.1.1 instead of QuickTime 7.1 which broke 10.4.6 horribly).
Still, I consider 10.4.4-10.4.6 not Apple's finest work and given my
knowledge of what issues are there I would like to prevent people from
Donwgrading is not really an option for Intel users. Pre-10.4.4
versions were only available for the Developer Transition Kit.
So, go ahead an use it.
