First weekend with the new Apple G5. All I can say is WOW. Set up accounts for myself and my two boys - fast user switching ROCKS. Plugged in my HP 5550 printer and it was there with an icon that *is* my printer! Same thing with my bluetooth T616 phone :eek: iSync is a beautiful thing.

My 8th grader was working on a history paper and had 6 or 8 windows open at the same time on the 20" Cinema. He loves Expose! Can I say WOW again? :D

Since the early 90's I've wanted a "Jobs" OS. I saw NeXTStep at the Las Vegas Comdex when it was at its peak. I can't believe I waited this long. With my roots in Unix, I feel right at home with OS X. It is simply the most beautiful and robust operating system that exists. Everything is object oriented. I can have a terminal window open at cd / and drag a folder object into the window and it correctly pastes the path into the window!

So much thought and time have gone into this system. I feel fortunate to be able to run it - especially on a G5. What a blast :p

Thats awesome man, so simple that anyone can use. Yet powerful enough to satisfy even the most demanding of users.

pure genius

Really?, you mean you never just surfed around your system from within the terminal window?

i find this to be most enjoyable
