    I put Panther on my wife's iBook 366 with 320Mb and it runs really well. I haven't done anything to trim it down to speed it up. She doesn't do anything taxing on it though, mail, excel, safari, ical are her main apps.

    Fantastic. Great to hear. OSX really is an amazing OS. It must be so well written. It's the exact opposite of my experience in Windows where the newer the OS, the newer the h/w needed to be. I've tried and gave up very quickly on running XP on 4yo h/w. Go Apple!
