Cool, I'll get one right away :)

There are very few third party drivers for any hardware yet. Apple has been very cautious about making sure that the foundation for the hardware manufacturers to write their drivers is very well thought out and tested.

I can't speak for the third parties, but their hesitance to develop is probably their own caution to make sure that Apple has worked out the kinks with this foundation.

Since driver's are very difficult to write and can completely hose your machine if either apple or the driver writer's screw up, I'm glad that everyone involved is taking the time to do it right.

But it is frustrating that it is taking so long to see the fruits of their labors.

So if there is a gay video card then there must be a straight and a biPLATFORM one :p get it ?? lol :p
Well any way, enough horsing around, I think making drivers for a particular OS is hard stuff, so I think ATI is warranted in waiting a little while because it wants to see if OS X is worth their time and effort.

I am an avid mac fanantic, but MacOSX has gone buzzerk! I can not even get in to it. Every time I login it gives me an error message that says something like this: macOSX has had a problem and has fixed it. After you click "ok" it wigs out and starts over, not restarting, just logs in again and gives you the same error message. I have a 266Mhz Lime iMac with 192 megs of ram and the 6 gigger. Anyone no how to fix me? Also when I finally get back to OS9 I have to repair my disk because apparently MacOSX (what ever drug it is on) is hurting my OS9!

There is no siomple way to unistall.
The way I would do it, is to start from a CD, then take the stuff out of the MacOS 9 folder in your HD and place them in the main directory (so that there is a "System folder" seeable when you open your HD. Then thrown out the two mach files and system (just put them in the trash)
and then restart.... I have not tried this myself so I caution you.
but in theory this should work and you should have OS 9 back.
(Why did u not install it on a partition ??? it would be much easier if you had made OS X on a partition)

Hope it works out for you
