    New Macs SLOWER than their predecessors?

    The DDR is underutilized only for CPU-based operations. DMA and AGP-based operations will benefit from DDR.

    Application Icon in Menu bar ...

    YES! This is EXACTLY what I am talking about!! Maybe we can write to Apple and have them put this back in. :D (a pipe dream?) hehehe

    Application Icon in Menu bar ...

    Really? That's WAY too bad! It's the only part of OS X that I cant stand (I know its petty) ... :D

    Application Icon in Menu bar ...

    This may seem like a stupid question (heh), but how do you make the application menu from text to an icon? For example: screengrabs with "Grab" in the application menu next to the apple menu instead of the icon for the program ... Thanks in advance! I cant seem to find this anywhere! - X

    I sincerely hope you're correct, AK. I suppose I can make my own BlueSteel theme for Mac OS X by hand ... but I'm too lazy. I guess I cant complain if I'm too lazy. Well, I will be lazy no more! I am suddenly inspired! I shall create a BlueSteel theme for Mac OS X (by editing the proper...

    Actually, I do most of My stuff from Darwin/XFree86. When I need access to Mac apps/music stuff, then I switch to Mac OS X. This is mainly due to the fact that I despise Aqua. :D

    I don't know if anyone is planning on doing something like gkrellm. I imagine a direct port is unlikely, as I gkrellm seems pretty closely tied to GTK and the Linux process model, both of which are foreign to OSX. That's right. I have GKrellM on My SPARCstation Voyager, and I had to...

    I was wondering if there is a software package like GKrellM for OS X, and if not, does anyone have any plans to port it? Thanks!

    Themes ...

    Now, I know no one has yet build a theme thingie for OSX (or am I completely misinformed?) I heard that Kaleidoscope may be ported to OSX. What I was wondering is would it be possible to get into the resources of the widgets, window borders, etc. and create your own theme from scratch, by hand...

    OSX Unicode ...

    When you access the UNICODE keyboard (how to you make it the default, BTW?), does it work in the shell as well? I come from a Solaris background, and I can use such characters as: Þ, þ, ð, Ð, ý, etc. on the command line using the "Compose" key. Cant wait to get a Mac with OS X on it. Then I...

    I have since switched over to ZSH, but in tcsh, there are a number of startup files you can have, .login, .profile, and .tcshrc. I have set some environment variables in my .login, I dont have a .profile, and I have even more environment variables all my aliases, and set my prompt in my .tcshrc...

    POSIX compliance & GNU tools

    > 1) How 'POSIX-compliant' is Mac OS X? Will most of the GNU development tools port over to it? < From what I know, OSX is POSIX, they just didnt bother to get POSIX certification. > 2) I know that there's probably a gcc port already, but what about GNU make, perl, flex, bison and GNU's...

    Themes ...

    I would love to see something similar to the Enlightenment theme Blue Steel for MOSX. This is the coolest theme I've ever seen, and have it installed on My Solaris box @ home.
