So I guess you are saying that only people born programming can be programmers.
and because I learned programming in assembly that I could not learn to program in C or C++?

you are not making sense at all.

Wow, someone willing to try and others laughing.... geez what now. I agree with Macintosh4life, when I read his post I didn't assume that he thought FreeBSD as a launguage, but rather the platform. I could do many things in the programing area too, however I know my limitations, including the amount...

I am really confused about all this talk. Developer version etc. I think everyone of you should watch the video from the unveiling of the mac on intel. Steve says in very plain english that since the beginning of OSX there have been 2 versions, one on ppc and one on intel. both versions are complete...

do you have a mac? or at least a second computer? you could move the files that way. I have not used Balilisk so I do not know if you can network. If the file that you want to open was stuffed by the classic suffit, then when you click on it to open in OSX, it will try to load the classic version. y...

Yes I do know that the xbox will use the triple core cpu. I was just pointing out the obvious about running different Os's on computers. Mac or otherwise. Maybe Apple and microsoft came to an agreement about the ppc to prevent xbox os being ported to mac.. maybe Longhorn is Maxos X! or very similar!...

Marc you said The reason IBM failed to control the market and create a closed system was that companies such as Compaq deconstructed the IBM PC and copied it, and since IBM used many cheap, non proprietry parts, they could release clone PCs easily. If someone tries this (reverse engeneering the x86 ...

Well I would suggest that you think about linux if you are not happy with windows, you can run pearpc in linux too. OS9 would probably be better served from Sheepshaver. modem support etc is something that you can find in the networking area. I don't sound like much help but everything you mentioned...

well I have said many times that virtual memory will slow things down if you make both windows and macos use it. remember that macos must use emulation to execute, and that includes moving things in and out of virtual mem.
