Pages: 1, 2, 3, 4

Nitrozac001: I think the creative types will remain loyal.

Snaggy001: I think absolutely the Mac will continue to be the creative platform

Snaggy001: But it will take the major apps of course

OReillyMac: How are you two dealing with it?

Nitrozac001: once those creative apps get onboard, they'll be flocking!

Nitrozac001: I make lots of OSX icons.

Snaggy001: Well, we are still mainly in OS 9 since our tools are still not OSx'd

alanosx: Not Classic?

Nitrozac001: we are slaves to the apps!

OReillyMac: it's so true

Snaggy001: I still have trouble in X, navigating around and such. Am resisting the Classic mode so far, just booting into X when necessary. But that will change soon.

OReillyMac: Jobs knew that all along

Nitrozac001: which apps do you use in Classic?

OReillyMac: Photoshop, goLive, few odds and ends for photography

Nitrozac001: cool

alanosx: Live Motion, Photoshop...mainly.

Snaggy001: but I will within 6 months I think

Nitrozac001: I guess iMovie, is great with OSX?
