  • [quote] In general, if you're compiling, never use gcc. There always tends to be a cc, which will almost always be a compiler optimized by the company for the platform it's being run on. Um, You're kidding right? Did you mean something differ…
  • There are lots of reasons. Most won't apply to a 'typical' Mac user. When I run linux I can do pretty much anything under the sun. Want to play with the latest development kernel? Go for it! Want to see if that pre-emptable kernel patch act…
  • spooky- [quote] One that has a very aquafied candy coated disney interface and one for the unix crowd that is CLI orientated. They already have this, its called "Mac OSX" And "Darwin".
  • I have a "summer 2000" (aka: slot-loading) iMac about a year or so ago. I got it because I wanted to play around with MacOSX when it came out, and it was the cheapest Mac available at the time (well, second cheapest, i have a DV, there was just an …
  • You can use a PC GeForce2MX in your cube, I do, and it works just fine. In fact, i use an 'MX400', which wasn't ever offered on a mac. I got mine from thinkgeek.com (its a visiontek, and the only geforce2 listed). I really want a dual proc ca…
  • Ah, this is Project Mayhem at work. To quote a line from Fight Club: "Nothing holds a fart like Meringue" But yes, quite disgusting ....
  • Actually, I have that exact machine, a 400Mhz G3 iMac, Rev "C" i believe, 256mb ram, 10gig disk. Its a nice little box, fairly quiet except for the CD drive. I have a few 10.2 builds on it, and its pretty damn fast! The interface feels faster t…
  • [quote] One more thing, I can't find anywhere the inkwell after default installation I believe apple is doing something smart here. In the PreferencePane directory, for Inkwell, there is a binary called 'Check_for_tablet', or something similar.…

  • [quote] Included Chess game upgraded to use iChat/Rendevous to find partners to play with online, including ranking scheme/ladder. Also add Go. Wow that is a cool idea! I mean, sure warcraft 3 and all those new mutli-player games do have a 'LAN…
  • I doubt we will get softupdates. Thats something tied to FreeBSD's file system, which OSX does not use (well it does have UFS but i don't know if its the same thing, most people will use HFS+). However, Apple may add some type of journaling ...
  • [quote] The OSX would probably be a Lite version, easing the hardware demands. If they could do this, why haven't they? G3s are quite sluggish with OSX, so if they could ease the system requirements, why wouldn't they? Trying to get people to…

  • Its got to be world better than OS9 ... when i bought my imac (the old G3 model) i had it locked up about 15 minutes out of the box. Yes, only 5 minutes after i was able to connect to the internet .
  • If my memory serves me correctly, KDE doesn't run on OSX/Darwin. See this:
  • You should give the ximian stuff a try (www.ximian.com). If you let it update your gnome to their version, it also installs the latest mozilla and evolution, as well as a bunch of other stuff. Evolution is really quite nice for mail, it works like…
  • [quote] However, Apple also wants you to buy a ton of iBooks. Speed is subjective and like I said, that's debatable. Personally, I'd like the performance on a G3 to be that of what is currently on a G4. I guess you're right, it is subjective. …
  • 5P48 ... Mmmm snappier!
  • Haha! How much faster do you want it to scroll? I think its pretty quick ... Do you mean, not necessarily speed, but how much the scroll bar moves for each movement of the bar? I guess neither are really configurable, ... at least not yet ...…
  • I use a logitech optical wheel mouse in OSX and it works perfectly, no drivers needed, just plug it in (you don't even need to reboot). The right mouse button brings up the contextual menu for whatever you clicked on. Its the same as holding dow…
  • Wow, thanks for all the positive comments guys! I submitted my feedback to apple ... so who knows! Just remember, if we see this in 10.2... it was all me! :cool:
  • Is your company running Exchange 5.5 or 2000? I just started a new job and they have an Exchange 5.5 server (bleh). But I'm able to use IMAP or POP3, and LDAP, all from mozilla mail. Try just entering the server name or IP, and leaving the search…
