Mac OS 9 Diehard?
My sister has been a Mac user since 1988. She uses her computer all the time and notably in her business (she's a self-employed graphic artist).
She's pretty knowledgeable when it comes to computers. She's installed RAM and hard disks herself (unlike me).
However she does have some quirks. She's not keen on software or OS upgrades. Enhancements really truly have to wow her to be worthwhile. She's had been typically 2 versions behind when it comes to Adobe Photoshop (and that was pre-OS X) and hasn't upgraded her Word Processing software (WordPerfect for Mac) in years (and WP for Mac doesn't even exist anymore).
She bought her most recent Mac in 2003. What was the first thing she did when she got it running? She reformatted the hard drive and installed OS 9.
She hates OS X. She says "it's too much like Windows".
I've tried to explain it's closer to Unix than Windows (from GUI to guts), but she didn't buy it.
Only in the past year or so has she started using OS X (and probably not the latest version), but only for "some applications"(she dual boots). I'm assuming she's using it with newer software that's only written for OS X.
But there's the catch - "some" applications". She's still using stuff that was written for System 8...
Do you feel this way about your OS and upgrades? Are you by choice 2 or more versions behind?
Are you a Mac OS X user who misses OS 9?
Inquiring minds want to know...
I can't help but wonder.....
....if these journals are actually read by anyone.
I got to be a mod!
But only for about 10 minutes.
I log on on Friday and lo and behold, I've been given mod status!
Woo-hoo! The gods have noticed me!
I guess it was just a deam though. I modded 3 posts and went back to bed (I'd been ill).
I get back on again today and poof! My mod status vanished.
I thought I had throgh today (3 days).
Oh well, I guess I'll just pretend it was all a dream.
It was, wasn't it?
