Of course. They don't release new versions just for kicks. They release new versions because they include new features, make things easier, remove bugs etc.

But my current version seems to work just fine. I don't have any bugs that I haven't noticed. The only thing I like about 10.3 as opposed to the others is the expose feature. If the next version has major improvements...then I will buy it. But if they are very minor...then what is the point. Is there any feature on the new OS that you can think of that makes it worthwhile?

Quite a few. Especially under the hood but also some very cool user features. http://www.apple.com/macosx/tiger/

3 Use Cases for Connected Systems

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

Well it all depends on those new upgrades are the ones are important to you or not. For me, I am a sucker for a more beautiful interface and new features therefore I can't wait for the new tiger to be out! I am actually looking forward to the new iChat which you can talk to more than one person at a time which would be useful for my video conference. The only thing i have to worry about now is whether my broadband connection can handle such stress! According the apple it is a different way of compressing the file compared to the current iChat. At the end of the day, i think it also involves with security as well.

Conclusion...i don't see why you need to.

yeah, that's why i said I am a sucker for new interfaces! It looks cooler! ;)

plus they now have "wiglets" which I think they are cool!

Have a look!

Anyway like I concluded earlier, it seems you do not need to upgrade at all. I don't think it is a significant difference in both OS! just the "search" function is improved and more "wiglets" to play around with.
