    Well after always using a pc for my entire life and having to deal with their problems the last being a burnt MB way back in Jan '02, I started to look for parts to build a new PC. I guess it was fate that I didn't have the money to buy a PC and spend it on more necessary things like food, and rent. Well about mid June I started to just browse info on Mac's and was curious to try one. Well to make a long story short I went to the Art lab here in school and really liked them alot. So this past Dec. almost a year after not having a computer I bought an IBook 800 with much anxiety to say the least. Other then the lack of a good p2p program, I love the Mac. OSX kicks serious butt, I don't use OS9 since it just appears so outdated compared to how wonderful OSX looks and works. I read reviews saying to not use a G3 when using OSX, well I have no idea what was their complaint, cause my G3800 responds better then those crappy Dell's. Well not only did I see the light after informing myself on the Mac, my friends who were diehards pc fanatics (notice how I said were) finally got their hands on my book and liked so much they are now thinking about getting their own once they get the cash (though I envy them since I would love to get that 12" PB). Well that's it for me a new loyal apple customer.

    Yeah, definetely... it started to really suck for a while, not connecting to more than 2 to 5 servers... but since version 0.7 it's really started to kick off again.. too bad it's shareware now...

    Acquisition is available here.

    Oh, welcome to the Mac world! :D

    Carracho is the only really good P2P. Give it a shot.

    Welcome to the Mac community. You'll find people here that have some great knowledge. I have a G3 400 and I think OS X rocks on it. Can't complain too much about speed. Going to ZIF it soon.
