Hi guys! just stumbled upon this site. I'm a would be switcher and needs to find out a few things before I take the plunge. Hope y'all can help me here. My quesions are: 1. Can I do PALM programming on a Mac? 2. Can I use most of the PALM apps (with conduits) on a Mac (like in PC)? 3. I plan to learn PHP/ASP/Cold Fusion. Is it possible to do these programmings on a Mac? I've been told that I can do the actual programming on a Mac, but when I wanna trial run those programs, I need to installed in in a PC? Any web developer here that can shed me the light? 4. Would an G3 700Mhz iBook (at least 256Mb RAM) be powerful enough if I plan to do Photoshop/Macromedia and some internet stuffs? 5. They say that I'm gonna missout a lotta things (programs) if I switch over completely. Is it true? As the iBook is my PC desktop replacement. 6. I heard from a Mac sales person that If I installed a non Apple specific RAM into the iBook, it will burn down the harddisk, how true is that? Frankly, there's quite a large difference in price. Any ideas? Thanks in Advance, fellow Mac users out there!
