    boot in Win NT mode

    Word and Excel already run on the Mac. That's not the point here. I want to be able to run _other_ stuff on my OS X hardware. Stuff that does not have or has cancelled a Mac version... o MATLAB o our own software o other scientific software Until the Mac market share goes somewhere...

    boot in Win NT mode

    Mach was designed to host other OSes just like the Classic environment. In fact, the only reason BSD is in the core OS is for speed. It was the first OS hosted by Mach. Why not Windows? Why not BEOs or OS/2? Why not PlayStation, for that matter? So, we'll have Classic and BSD running...

    OSX Beta on Beige G3

    Both the Voodoo 3 2000 PCI card and the IBM 466 CPU card are "issues" at this point for DP4. But that is a 5 month old piece of very volatile work. I don't know if they've been solved with Public Beta or they will be addressed when 1.0 ships. Only time will tell. Apple has a LOT on its...

    OSX Beta on G3 Upgraded 7600?

    128 MB of RAM is recommended so that you don't beat up your hard drive swapping memory pages in an out all the time. More RAM is even better. Ever see a Windows machine do this? It's caled "thrashing" when the OS spends most of its time swapping memory pages to/from the hard drive. This is...

    OSX Beta on Beige G3

    I am running DP4 on a Beige G3/300 desktop. These are pretty much the same motherboards so you should have no problem But since I don't have the Beta yet, I can't say for sure. A couple of recommendations: 1) get more RAM. 96 MB should be enough but in paged, Virtual memory systems...
