Os X

Hey, I heard from somewhere that you can get OS X for free from apple's site or summin'. I don't exactly know where cuz I can't find it, so if you guys know give me a shout. Also, I just got a powerpc 7300/200... do you know if the hdd's are just regular IDE drives?

Mmkay, I don't even know if you guys know anything about macs, but I thought I'd throw this out there ;)

The 7300/200 uses SCSI hard drives, so upgrading shouldn't be that hard, just a little more expensive than IDE drives.

Here is a page you should find helpful: Apple Power Macintosh 7300/200

Oh man, not even a G3 proc? Psh. :p How much RAM do you have in that? You should have at least 256mb before you try to run OSX. It's a RAM hog and runs slow enough as it is. If you don't have that much, just upgrade to 9.1 (If you don't already have it).

A smart shopper wouldn't have bought a Mac. That being said Apple is trying to get everyone who has OS X to upgrade to the new version which will cost you $130 US even if you bought OS X before as they have no upgrade version.

Dude, what do you use a computer for? Obviously not video editing/music editing and all that stuff a mac is good for. You can't say that a mac is shitty cuz they are "trying to get everyone that has OSX to get jaguar for 130 bucks". For that one reason all their computers are shit? I think thats a gay reason. What about what microsoft? Releasing 2000, then ME, and then XP all within what? a year. So now what are you gonna say? All pc's are shitty too? so whats left? game consoles? That's all I have to say.

I didn't know thats what you got it for. If thats what you actually use your comp for Macs are sweet.

First off the thing about this that pisses me off is that Jaguar is just an UPGRADE to OSX. If you were going from ME to XP it would only be $100 as opposed to the full price i think that Mac is cheap not to offer an upgrade price to people who have just recently paid $130 for OSX. Windows 2000 and Me were released almost 2 years ago and they are for diffferent things. I never said macs are shit i just think that the first step to becoming an almost universaly accepted system like microsoft has it needs to work on its compatablility wjich has NOTHING to do with its price. For my money i'll take Linux for free download all the open-source programs for free, and spend the money i saved on better hardware.

Anyone who spent $150 dollars to upgrade from 98 to ME is an idiot anyways. ;)
