    Why Win2K is worse than OS X?

    PoweMACuser - I am confused by your Threads. You say that you are a Mac user, and then you also say that you are not an anti-Microsoft user. Then you start this thread saying at CNet has a screwed up evaluation method in testing these two operating systems. But you never say which operating...

    I like TextEdit - but if you want a Unix terminal window text editor - you can never go wrong with Emacs. Pico is for Windoze *nix user.

    apache wont start

    atoms is right - if you want to even consider yourself a unix guru, you have to learn vi and emacs. I personally love emacs, I know that there is a lot of commands to remember - but it is so versatile, you can even compile LISP, c , c++ etc .. programs with it. It is a must to the guru - hood...

    root perms and performance issues

    One reason why OS X runs so fast on the G4 chip is that Altivec has additional features specific written for the G4 processor.
