    We just haven't gotten around to upgrading yet. Not to mention the hole xmas eats in your purse.

    Soon, though.

    iMac 333 (rev D) upgraded to 256MB RAM, soon to have a new hard disk too, once i pull it out of one of the x86 boxes at home. 6GB is getting constraining for this little guy and two OSes.

    Dual boot OSX 10.3 and YellowDog Linux 3.0.

    my PowerMac G3 350 has 10.2.8 on it. Jaguar was free to school teachers / employees mid-year 2003, so i ordered a couple of copies under two teachers' names

    work is getting some new macs this year, so i'll order 10.3 when they get all that crap. bulk plus the edu discount should make it nice. (although i'm not sure bulk will affect anything).

    I have BasilikII on my PC, which is running a version of System 7. Also have OS8.5 on my 6220TV. The Mac Classic is running System 6 i think ^_^
    i've also had Rhapsody, Release Candidate 1, running on an x86. fun, but really really pointless.
    I'd rather be posting from an Apple //c

    My iMac is running 10.3.x, and my PowerBook (Due to apple forcing any computer that wants to run 10.3 to have inbuilt USB), is running 10.2.8. My PowerBook would be heaps faster with Panther, I know for certain. But alas.

    9.2 on my g4 (used to run 10.2 headless and act as a gateway)
    7.5.5 on my Quadra 605 (which, in about 10 minutes it going to the tip)

    On the old imac at work I am running 10.2.x

    Runs nice.. apart from the few hardware problems the machine has had since I got it. Think its all solved now, soon find out in a few days time.

    As to home, I don't have a mac at home. I do have the plan to buy an emac with superdrive or combo drive in the next 6 months.

    I've mainly been a PC fellow, but always liked/used unix type stuff, so I see the mac with os x as being a great machine and thus my reason for wanting one. OS X is the bomb!

    God&#33; Convince the boss its worth the upgrade to Panther, it may be bigger and fatter, but it&#39;s better optimised than X.2.x and by all accounts runs better, even on old iMacs.
    If it can be imagined, their is already porn based on it.

    I have the software, but we decided not to install since we aren&#39;t supporting much of the new panther on customers machines just yet.

    I just ordered my icecube firewire400/usb2 enclosure, and soon to get the 120gb drive for it, so I might bring them both in and plug it upto the mac in question and install panther onto the external drive so that I can have a chance to see the differences without totalling the installed internal drive I did a few weeks back.

    the imac i have sitting here runs mandrake 9.1 PPC.
    it used to run OS 9.2, but it wasn&#39;t working when i got the imac, so i installed mandrake.

    i haven&#39;t actually used it much though. :blink:

    That sounds interesting&#33; Can you show us a screenshot of that, looktall? Or does it just look identical to the PC version of mandrake?

    IIRC it looks the same as the PC version.
    i can&#39;t really post a screen shot of it as it&#39;s not hooked up to my network.
    and apart from that, there&#39;s no print screen button on the keyboard, so i don&#39;t know how i&#39;d take one. lol

    after hunting through several ftp sites, i found it at arachnet.

    ftp://redback.arach.net.au/mirrors3/mandr...andrake-9.1PPC/

    arachnet peers through WAIX, so for me, it was a free download.
    i don&#39;t know if they peer through PIPE or whatever your IX is.
