He Likes It!
I gulped and took the plunge -- and liked it. OS X, that is. After debating about moving up to Apple's modern Unix-based system, curiosity got the best of me. I can report that it was relatively painless.
After backing up important files, I inserted the CD and let the installer rip. Just 25 minutes later, I was looking at a different screen, with big photographic icons that bounce. (OK, maybe that's a bit much.) It took me awhile to figure out where everything was, but I was able in seconds to connect to the 'Net, get my e-mail, and even use the programs I use every day. They're operating in "Classic" OS 9 mode, but, at least on a Titanium G4 PowerBook, don't seem to lag.
I had to play with network settings a bit. But I was truly impressed when I was able to hook up the 'Book to my DSL line without installing any additional software.
