    Poll: Installation of X on a beige G3

    I've got an older beige G3 at work I'd like to install X on once it gets to be a fully valid option (i.e., there's a version of Office out for it, etc. I'm glad FileMaker's no longer an issue). On the iMac I've got here, I obtained its Firmware Update via the Control Panel. Isn't that the...

    osX background & login, boot panel(s).

    It's not that one. IMO, this isn't too obscure to be a given option; but if/once I figure it out I'll let you know...

    Virtual desktops

    I'd like the option, though. If it ought to be 1st in order of importance or not isn't the issue, IMO. One of the issues I've got in osX is that I'm on an iMac giving me only 1024x768 (i.e., the overall look-&-feel of 8x600 in osX). Other things, too...like the Finder not being in one layer...

    Harddisk Optimizor is needed!

    Is VersionTracker an option? Get it on there...

    osX background & login, boot panel(s).

    In other words, the boot/login background: not the individual panels, & obviously not the desktop picture once I've logged in. ;)

    osX background & login, boot panel(s).

    Ok, I've got an issue here: I've got login panels, boot panels, etc. & the option to overwrite them; only I've got no info on how to overwrite that off-blue background in osX. I'd like it to be white, for instance, instead. Noel

    toolbar in os x...

    One other option is to view the toolbar in the Finder as text-only (i.e., no icons). I've got it like this, & the outcome is that it is not obtrusive, & items open into the one window instead of new ones. I guess this isn't optimal if one likes icons instead; but it's the only other idea I've...

    GoLive in osX

    Ok, is GoLive 5.0 opening for others in osX/Classic or not? I've got it installed, & generally go into OS 9.1 to open it; but it isn't opening for me otherwise in osX.

    OSX: What will I miss when I leave WinXX?

    I'd guess that once osX is going out installed on iMacs, etc. it ought to be over a variety of the issues it's got now. Otherwise, I'd go into things like that... 1. In OS 9, if I go to order a VAIO laptop in IE or Netscape it informs me that I've got to be on Windows. Overall, this is very...

    osX Internet connection gone.

    I've got an issue getting online in osX. It's very odd, but I'll give an overview of it: In osX, I've got no outgoing Internet connection. I'll open OmniWeb, for instance, goto a link, & it gives me nothing. On the other hand, if I open Classic, I've got no issues & I'm online (not in osX...

    fsck instead of Disk First Aid

    I guess I'd be interested in finding out of 'fsck' is the ideal option, or if it's only one other way to go. In other words, is it optimal (i.e., going to increase the likeliness of getting over hd issues) or only an identical, non-graphical version of the other? It's good to know it's there...

    OS of MacOSX.com

    The impression I get is that it's on Linux instead of osX. I'm guessing this isn't very important... ;)

    OS X vs. OS 9 Speed

    The #1 issue I've got in osX is opening things (OmniWeb is a very good example of this; but I'll get irritated opening a new Finder window, too). I'm only on an iMac, but 9.1 is very fast on it. I've got a '98 G3 WallStreet, 300MHz/192MB. I've got 9.1 installed on it, & it's faster than osX...

    What % of you time do you spend in OS X

    I'm in OS 9.1 now, on a G3 I've not got X installed on, if that's an indication...I like getting into, learning, etc. the in's & out's of osX, & I find it interesting; otherwise (if I've got things I've got to do) I'm in OS 9, or 9.1. Once in a while, if I'm at work, I've got an older beige G3...
