Thread: The switch...

I have used PC's for well over 15 years, became an avid OS/2 user in the late nighties and pushed to years of headaches using the Windows platform. BSOD's, unresponsiveness, unpredictable behaviors, slowness etc.
I have a G4 tower and G4 PowerBook that I am happy to use.
It does not feel as solid and efficient as OS/2 but it gets the work done without complication. And the UI is simple, elegant and musters the power of Unix.

friend of mine was a die hard pc guy, programmer. very smart programmer. 25 years or more. when OSX came out, he got an imac. then another and another. has a all mac network in the home now. He wont even touch a windows box anymore, he's tired of the years of troubleshooting and tweaking and hassles.
He loves his macs.
BTW, I had a G4 tower (sawtooth). 7 years when I sold it. That mac is still working today, trouble free and 8 yrs old.

My tower is a Sawtooth too (500mhz) and I am glad to say video editing in iMovie is no trouble at all.
It also runs Photoshop CS1 pretty well too.

OS/2 was ahead of it's time. It had a true 32 bit core, with true multitasking back when NT4 was the only other OS capable of it (but unstable). But MS muscled them out of just about all market shares, besides ATMs

A came across someone who still works with OS/2 at work and he had an original copy of the event.
I uploaded the video in five parts on Youtube:
