For those who use NUM for OS X...

...what are your experiences to this point?

Same as always - cause more problems than it fixes? Do you need Classic installed to install / run the suite, or can you run all of the utlities (including Speed Disk) natively from OS X?

Anyone noticed any performance gains from optimizing their disk, etc?

    Upon installed the latest beta, I get kernel panics that trace back to the kernel extensions NUM installs. Took me a while to figure it out, because I have energy saver turn off my LCD instead of using a screensaver, and whenever I'd come back to my box, it wouldn't wake up. I eventually turned that off one night, and low and behold, NUM ws causing kernel panics. I've no idea why, but uninstalling it fixed the problem.

    NUM was a godsend in OS 9, and FileSaver recovered some crashed disks a few times and saved me the trouble and $$$ of having to send the disk to drivesavers. I just wish it ran alright in X... maybe when it goes final.

    It has gone final...been available for a few weeks now AFAIK. Also, I'm hoping NUMOSX is *better* than NUM Classic because every time I ever ran that POS under OS 8 or OS 9, it actually caused all sorts of startup crashes, incompatibilities and other havoc. The only useful aspect of the program was Speed Disk IMO.
