If you like using OSX then use a virtual machine. I use VmWare Fusion. I use that for Linux and NetBSD too. If you want to run stand alone Windows then don't worry ... Windows runs better on a MAC...

Ahh ... Finder found it on my Desktop. I had so much junk there I didn't see it. I must have moved it there from Utilities instead of copying it. I'll move it back to the utilities folder.

I'm not aware of ever deleting anything from Applications/Utilities. I know it is in the system because I can see it in Apple/Recent Items and if I click that then it brings it up.

Open "terminal"

How do you open "terminal"? I have tried looking under Go/Applications and Go/Applications/Utilities. But there is nothing listed for "terminal".

I am using OSX 10.5.8.
