Re: Alienation, apple going into the night

In terms of alienation - I did not use MacOS X until 10.2 came out. I had been a user of the Public Beta, had installed 10 and tried 10.1 but the application support was not there, and there was not enough stuff with the OS to make it worth while. MacOS 9 was a rickety barge compared to OS X but I was willing to put up with it. Now the only thing that I use Classic for is to play some of my old games (like populus and themepark).
