It's a relative's 700 MHz G3 iBook, Panther 10.3.9. Now that Office 2008 is out, 2004 licenses are much cheaper, and v.X are -really- cheap. So my first though was to go for v.X and save some money, however, being a relatively old Mac it can certainly use faster software and I do remember v.X had a dB daemon that ate about 10% of the CPU even when Office apps. where idle. Opinions ?
