Question Moving from 10.6.8 to 10.7 or 10.8??

Hi,
I have 2 old Mac Pro machines here 2007 and 2008 working as day one, both with 12/13 GB of RAM.

I was considering upgrading from my solid stable MAC OS 10.6.8/ Pro Tools Hd 10.3.10 to MAC OS 10.7 or 10.8, keeping PT Hd 10.3.10.

I am not sure which OS I should target for!
My intention is to use the latest versions of plug-ins like Ozone 8 (requires 10.8), Waves WLM , newer compatible web browser and a few others, along with Pro Tools Hd 10.3.10( Hd Accel rig).

Any info is welcomed!
Thanks

One of our rigs is same as yours on Maverick 10.9 and solid as.
I also have a Yosemite system with both PT 10.3.10 and PT12 running.
Although on that one PT10 has GUI issues.

Supposedly the last & most stable: Mac OS 10.9.5 (Mavericks) with PT HD 10.3.10
I'm using & it's solid!

Nice to know 10.9.5 is doing fine with 10.3.10 Hd!
But will it do fine with a 2008 2,1 MAC PRO?

I'd definitely try Mavericks.
From memory, Skype for instance doesn't support anything below Mavericks.

I'd also look at grabbing a 5,1.
2,1 is way too old now to be a reliable machine.

Not sure but I ended up going from an early 2oo7 (2006?) to a 5,1 / 12 core / 3.46 gh / 64 gb
