I run Be on a crappy Intel system. Be is a good OS, but not very useful.
Thank you thank you THANK YOU Steve for telling them NOT to buy Be!!!

Anyway, I prefer going months without a crash with Mac OS X (10.1) than
having post 95 versions of Windows crash every couple of hours.

Plus I like being able to run text-based UNIX programs, X based apps,
Windows programs, Mac OS Classic, and Mac OS X programs, all on the screen
at the same time, and all of them feeling pretty snappy. On a G4, anyway.
Wouldn't try it on a G3. Would any PC users out there like to take the
Photoshop benchmark test against my 800Mhz TiBook? Hmm... Anyone? :-)
