MAC = SOB a true story

MAC is the first attempt to get it right, then Gates come along and started a revolution that just keeps growing and growing. sounds a lot like the history of the A/S.

Okay, I might as well get into the "contest". Between home and work (not counting the wife's work), I have what must be the "Norad Defense Package" of home/ office computing. We have, in no particular order:
Dell Dimension: Windows Me, 80gb hd. 256mbRam DVD R/W
Gateway Global; Windows 98 (2), 40 Gb hd. 128mb Ram, DVD +CD R/W
Dell Dimension: Windows XP, 100Gb hd. 512mb Ram, DVD R/W+ CD R/W
Compaq 5000T Windows ME, 30Gb hd. 256mb Ram, CD R/w-DVD combo
Compaq 6000 Windows XP, 120 Gb hd. 512 mb Ram, CD R/W DVD
HP 304: Windows XP, 40 Gb hd. 256 mb Ram, CD R/W
Gateway 500 Windows 98 (2) 20 Gb hd. 64mb Ram, DVD
Gateway Global: Windows 98 (1) 20 Gb hd. 64 mb RAM, CD Rom
E Machines E700 Windows ME, 30 Gb hd. 96 mb Ram CD R/W, DVD ROM
E Machines E400 Windows 98 (2), 10 Gb hd. 64 mb Ram, DVD ROM
Custom W. Proprietary O/S, 32mb 2 Gb hd. 32 mb Ram, 3.5" floppy
And, of course, the obligatory TRS80 in a closet in tha computer room.
Everything at home, except the TRS80, is networked together (3'puters)
Everything at work is networked together, except the Custom-built unit.
All those different versions of Microsoft's finest make for some interesting binary conversations, and software conflicts.

Remember, enquiring minds wanted to know...

Mac vs. SOB = Airstream vs. SOB

I'm an admitted Mac bigot but see the synergy between Mac and Airstream as they fit into their overall frameworks in comparative design, cost and uniqueness. Mac represents about 5% of all personal computer use but seems clearly the choice for image and display placement in movies, comic strips, advertising, etc. Airstream seems to fill that bill as well. I'm curious. Does anyone know what the percentage of Airstreams are compared to the entire travel trailer SOB market? I'm guessing it might be a similar 5%.

I think you are really going to like Panther.....don't ask me how I know.... Those that currently use Jaguar Server will also REALLY like the Panther Server enhancements as well!

BTW, I agree, Apple and Airstream are a hand and hand type of situation....

I had the Ti Powerbook and now have the 17" Powerbook. They both look real cool in the Airstream. A few folks had come by while I was on the computer in the Bambi, and they were all warm and fuzzy that the laptop looked just like the Airstream.....wonder if Jobs has an Airstream or if folks in Jackson Center use Macs?

....not the biggest, just the best.....

I am currently a Mac user running 10.2.8 on my G5, G3, Flat Panel Imac, and 15" Tbook. I use all this for high end photographic imaging and production. OS X has been absolutely the most stable OS I've worked on. My wife WAS working on a PC (Dell), and I was constantly fixing something or other, so I do have the experiance with both platforms to call it as I see it. Last year she switched to the mac (OS 102.x), is working in Mac Office 10.x. Here files work beautifly between her office PC and the Mac.

As far as Panther goes, I have that on order as well. The G5 will benefit the most from what I understand, taking advantage of the 64 bit processing. We'll see about that, and which of my programs will or will not work following the big upgrade.

The current apps should work, but performance will be less since the CPU will need to talk in 32-bit for the program unless there is an upgrade that allows the program to talk in 64-bit chucks.

In speaking with engineers that had access to a G5 told me that they opened about 10 apps at once and the thing totally screamed!

What I am waiting for is Panther Server to run on an X-serve with a G5 chip...that will be pretty special!

On my desktop I am dual booting between Win XP and SUSE Linux 8.2.
When you are used to using XP, it is quite a task to switch to Linux as you have to dig a bit deeper into the OS.
Finally settled on the KDE interface using Konqueror for the web and Evolution for mail. The biggest problem with the switch has been getting my sound card to work as there is no support from the manufacturer. I still have no printer set up with Linux as Lexmark don't support this OS either. Means I have to switch back to XP for any printing jobs.
Cheers,
Dave Harris
