I guess it depends on your Mac too. I have a friend with a Pismo Power book that cant get work done in OS X. He loves it but X just runs too dam slow on his powerbook. Running X with classic mode... is even worse. He is stuck in a lease with Apple and its is all ready starting to fall appart. (DVD drive stoped working among other things) He stopped paying for the insurance just before it started to break. Poor smuck.Originally posted by agreenster
He has some pretty good points. I still use OS 9.2 on a regular basis (not in Classic mode, but boot-up), and since I dont have a multiprocessor system (400G4), OSX doesnt add any functionality to my already existing OS.
OSX is cool, but OS 9.2 works.
I feel the flames a-comin'.
(remember, I love Apple too......)
He does a lot of work with Dreamweaver, Flash, PhotoShope, and Bryce.Originally posted by al256
Pismos run OS X just fine. Classic sometimes runs faster than OS X but that is rare. My Pismo runs OS X 24/7. I run VPC 5 on it, leave classic on all the time and even use AOL. My screen cracked on it so I can't take it to school anymore, but I made it into a desktop and it works great. The computers that would have the hardest time running OS X is the orginal iMac 233 and the wallstreet. I have an iMac 233 which doesn't run 10.1 that well but 10.0.4 seemed to be bettter with it, don't ask me why. Evildead what was your friend trying to do with his Pismo? Maybe some extra ram could boost the performence.
Toast is out for OS X??? when did that happen? I thought Roxio only had out preview verion 2. I will have to look into that.Originally posted by dantec
One of the trashiest rumor sites in existance!
I use X all the time. What I do on my indigo iBook is boot it up in the morning, and let it sleep during the day when i'm not using it all school... Works great!
My Quicksilver however makes OS X feel like OS 9 in speedwise comparison (almost!).
Oh and Toast Titanium is available for X.
