    Just for the record, OS X on my macbook pro is less stable than... windows 98.

    Seriously.

    Give it some time before making the switch, people.

    Man, make sure you have a newer version... Mine hasn't crashed once. Use it everyday w/ Parallels, everything Roesetta you can think of. I think we bought ours around the same time too.

    Have you added memory? Cuz I had a bad module in mine for a week (was crashing like hell) before I took it back and replaced it, now it's fine.

    I added memory, yes. What should I do, send it back?

    I'm thinking about buying a mac book. We just installed a couple apple servers in one of the racks at work for testing purposes. I'd like to learn apple networking as it looks like with the intel chips in macs now, a lot of people are getting interested in them. Mac people represent about 3% of our client base right now (webhosting company).

    Nobody really uses Apple specific networking anymore. People use windows/unix networking stuff.

    You don't use yours hard like I does mine.

    Most of my crashes happen in association with network operations. This is why I don't think its the RAM. Webdav stuff will lock it up, and dav support in OS X is HORRIBLE. Samba mounted stuff gives me problems too. Safari has always randomly pinwheeled forever for me. This in conjunction with firefox's shittiness makes the whole thing pretty unstable.

    webdav is shitty on every platform. And safari? Please, that is a well-known piece of junky sofware. Opera. End of thread.

    Webdav is fine on most platforms. Its slow, but there's no reason it should tank an entire operating system. Nothing about it means there should be system-halting bugs in code that implements it. OS X's network browsing code sucks too.

    i'm not running webdav, but everything networking for me seems fine. Only run Opera and firefox. Safari is shit. Did you add your own memory module, or get it through apple?

    I bought the Corsair module jolly recommended. But webdav has always been buggy, as has samba. As has firefox. So I doubt its the memory.

    Ironically, we had a client drop ship 10 apple servers to us this morning for setup in our rack as a colo.

    Right, but you won't be using Appletalk. Nothing specific to Apples. I think you will enjoy the interfaces though. OS X Server is very, very impressive.

    These servers are beautiful. Just barely over an inch tall and brushed aluminum cases with blue led lighting. They turn me on just looking at them :naughty:

    I haven't gotten to connect to one yet. Network admin is still setting them all up.
