    Wow that isn't at all old and irrelevent. I've always enjoyed the vid though, at least the first dozen times I've seen it.

    I'm impressed you managed to pry your lips off Steve Jobs's ass long enough to say all that :mamoru:

    Impressive, isn't it. How are you enjoying the taste of Gates' nuts?

    OS X is the only OS I've ever used daily, on a notebook, that crashes about once a year. Even Linux has always crashed more often than that for me. Not the OS, but X windows. And considering all the unverified, shareware/freeware that I run on it... I have complete confidence that it would never crash if I were more careful... like on a server.

    All the info in that thing is outdated, but it was kinda funny when I watched it years ago.

    That is AWESOME! I never saw that one.

    If this is accurate for OS9, that must explain why not too many people got pissed off when Apple re-engineered the whole fucking OS for OSX. Kinda like what happened with XP, now that I think about it...

    Yeah, but the stable platform redesign was with Win2k. That was/is reasonable stable. The work from that and parts of 2003 were what made up the core of XP.

    Not so much. Win2000 was more of a business-oriented product than WinXP is; most people (who, unlike us, didn't bother using business-oriented products) switched straight from Win98 or WinME to WinXP. It was a huge leap forward for them.

    Right, but the 2K engine is what made XP stable. ME for instance was an unstable piece of dogshit.

    I love the OS X shell. Needs some improvement like tabs, but its the only OS that comes with TRUE transparency (shows the windows behind it) functioning by default. And I use this all the time. It was like... the big thing that attached me to OS X in the first place.

    That was made several years ago.. Back when the Quadra macs were popular. I believe it was pre-IBM and pre-G3 series... The Motorolla 68xC chips were still being used. This was around the times of Windows 98.

    OSX is the first Apple OS that I would use on a daily basis. 9 was an improvement, but still not worth a shit. 8 and prior were just toys. OSX, however, is pretty sweet.

    This is also included in XP. However MS put it in the API and left the control up to the application. There are programs (not unlike how ultramon works) that can add this functionality to all programs via their drop-down control menu.

    I despise transparent windows. I can't read shit on them. Whereas, one WindowBlinds feature I love is the ability to pushpin windows on top of everything else whenever I want. Very convenient when I'm cooking my books and I need the calculator handy.

    I have a black background color, bright monochrome green text, and run it at 60-70% opacity and I can read docs behind it in firefox while typing the instructions.

    Heh. What is that, Commodore 64 colors on a Mac? I'm surprised they haven't found you hanging in a closet with an Apple logo carved into your chest.
