Say what you will about OS X and it's speed, or lack thereof depending on who you are, but I have to use OS 9 at work and it's killing me.

The whole "you can only do one thing at a time" deal is such a productivity killer. If I'm spolling a large document, I can't do anything else. that's the biggest time killer. Along with other multitasking issues.

In real world work environments, OS X is indispensible. But, sadly we're not switching to X for several more months. :(

On the bright side, we're giving Quark the axe. InDesign it is. :D

...now if only someone would release a decent font managing app...

I'm one of those stubborn Mac OS 9 fans, plan to continue with it till I get a new Power Mac. Currently see no reason to switch, can just start from scratch!

You really should run 10.2, I see you have a G4 DP 450 (in your profile), that'd run Jaguar sweetly! Go on....you know you want to!
Once you go X....you'll never go back ;)
