Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers -------------------- Start of message text -------------------- >OSX >is there any reason to fear it? Nope. Although there are a few useful ground rules. Dave's mentioned a couple, but also: 1) Get more RAM. As much as you can stuff in your machine if possible. 2) Make sure that your Administrator account is *not* the one you do regular work in. Use it *only* for system administration and you won't be able to break stuff by accident. You can do some sysadmin stuff like installing apps from your regular login, but you'll be asked for your admin security details which will apply to that action only. 3) You can run all those OS9 apps, but you'll need to run a separate environment to do it. You can do this at the same time as your OSX apps, but that environment will suck memory and CPU cycles to run itself as well as your chosen app. Actuallly, it just plain sucks, but it's still better than rebooting the machine. 4) Corollary: Upgrade Photoshop and DW/whatever to OSX versions. 5) There's lots of cool free stuff - some of which are Unix type tools, but even some of those have GUI installers.
