    I hear that from Howard Stern once.

    I still a fish on the water with OS 9.2.2, I think that some thing have to be a bit difficult for us to really learn something about the subject, with OSX some things are easyer but the navigation between folders is a night mare fore me, too the fact that when I want to mae an application invisible I have to go to the other side of the screen this time and the "File" menu is not beside to the apple any more but almos in the middle of the screen.

    But, I just saw something, a little detail that make me fell this people just thought about all and had fun doing it. I'm using Mediacleaner Pro and I minimize the soft window. Now, on the Dock there is a number on the top of the Mediacleaner icon that says 11/17, those are the files remaning to be procesed! That is very nice.

    Another thing is that I have 320MB of ram and I'm using applications that "require" 250MB of free memory in 9.2.2 but I'm running them in Clasic mode with no problem. Some of them crashed on me without any warning like After Effect (no warning message, nothing, all lost) and that is something to learn about OSX, still no perfect and I have to know when the thing is gonna fail on me.

    Well, I still the testing, Not ready to make a full jump in to it, I can wait another 6 months at list to leave 9.2.2 for good.

    you can also watch the progress of a burn with Toast by the Toast icon in the dock. Print something and watch the numbered pages go through the Print Center icon. This level of attention to detail and user feedback is groundbreaking.

    OS X is pretty sweet. I am looking forward to 10.3!

    I've got my peeves, but it's been years since I enjoyed the PC at home this much. 8 hours a day was too much, now I can't wait to get home to get on my iMac some days.

    It's slowly reaching the level of my iPod, indispensible. I liked it under Windows, I love it under OS X.
