  • Those Ads are annoying as all hell. Makes me cringe.

  • My GF in in architecture school, and I can tell you that despite a virtual univeral admiration of Apple aesthetics, The universal concensus seems to be: "No AutoCad for the Mac." End of discussion.
  • The problem in the past, that you're referring to, was that Apple was offering a lot of very similar hardware that was difficult to distinguish. The names were not descriptive (e.g. Perform 5200). Often the numbers on each model were based only on…
  • 256kB L2 running at full processor speed and 1MB L3 running at half processor speed is better than just 1MB L2 running at half processor speed.

  • I don't think Apple is dead yet, but if the current course continues for the next couple years, you will be right. They need a major leap in speed, and get close to where AMD is these days. If they can't manage that, it becomes more and more diffi…

  • Just my observations. Pedro's getting better. His pinpoint control isn't back yet, but his velocity and movement on his fastball is up, and he looks a lot less sloppy. I don't know if he'll return to his form of a couple of years ago, but I do…
  • Mozilla. Yes , the interface sucks, but it gets almost all web pages right, it's faster than Omniweb, tabbed browsing freakin' rocks, and it doesn't bog down on big pages like IE. With Silk, I'm pretty happy with it. I was using Omniweb for a…
  • This is not the reason Apple (or OS X) is doomed. Who cares, other than a few geeky programmers who feel the need to prove that Linux is superior to everything else out there? Of all the reasons apple might die, this is by far the silliest I've …
  • [quote]Originally posted by Hobbes: I think many people are eager to see Classic go as some developers (ahem, cough, quark) seem to feel little pressure to develop a OS X native app as long as their app works on OS 9 / Classic. Certainly Apple w…
  • Are there real techincal problems with getting this stuff to work over PCI Video card, or is Apple simply saying what they will and will not support? Can we expect a hack to allow PCI Radeon and Radeon 7000 cards to work?
  • [quote]Originally posted by Gambit: But BTC, a kernal extension IS a vital system resource and you REALLY shouldn't be messing with them. Just because 'kernal extension' has the word 'extension' in it, doesn't mean it's an extension in the OS…
  • [quote]Originally posted by BuonRotto: It's most frustrating for an admin user who should have a little more leeway on what he or she can actually admin. I don't mean fudging with the System folder, but sometimes doing stuff in the Apps folder…
  • My biggest beef by far with OS X is permissions. I understand what they do and why they're there, but they're really not necessary on a single user system. I've managed for many years without them under OS 5-9 and didn't "screw things up." I don'…
  • The antialiasing looks great on my CRT, but it seems virtually unreadable on a LCD (powerbook G4). You would've thought that Apple might have optimized it's OS for it's own monitors, but oh well.
  • I was running OS X on a beige G3 (233Mhz, then 400Mhz G4), but I have to say it's a bit slow. Much faster on a 350Mhz B&W machine. Definitely don't use the stock HD, it's painfully slow even in OS 9. I used (and am using) a Maxtor 30GB driv…
