    AOL Instant Messenger

    Success: 500Mhz PB 2000

    Just wanted to say that I have it running on a 500Mhz PowerBook G3 (2000, firewire model). Dual display works, as does sleep (<1 sec to sleep, 2-3 to wake up). It's nice to see the battery monitor... it will even show how much time left until the battery is charged (when plugged into AC)...
