Welcome to IWETHEY!

New If you are nix minded...
which you are, you may want to run Apple's X11 or Oroborough (sp?). I have been using Apple's x11 for about four months and ssh'ing to my Solaris boxen to run Matlab, Maple and the "usual" ware...

No complaints here. I run Office X for simplicity (and it only cost me $25 bucks here at a university) and compatibility, but I have done a lot of testing with Open Office and Star Office... The nice thing about having a Mac is that you have the choice of running commercial ware if you so desire. I remember Microsoft Office when it was MAC ONLY (from '85 to '91) and of course still feel most comfortable using it.

But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything you've got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

New "Ouroboros", it seems.
Here are some links:

[link|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ouroboros|http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ouroboros] -- this one is especially interesting with regards to the spelling: Several alternative spellings (try them; go to that link, and then change the spelling in the address line of your browser!) are redirected to this node.

[link|http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node=ouroboros|http://www.everythin...pl?node=ouroboros]

[link|http://phrontistery.50megs.com/o.html|http://phrontistery.50megs.com/o.html] (scroll down)

But alternative spellings abound, as for example in the window manager I suppose you mean: [link|http://www.oroborus.org/|http://www.oroborus.org/]

HTH!

New Thank you once again, sir cyclic
I might as well just dump these links out while we're on the subject...

[link|http://www.macosxapps.com/|http://www.macosxapps.com/]
[link|http://www.macosxhints.com/|http://www.macosxhints.com/]

And because of the snide comment I made in the "other" forum, linux runs just fine on macs, thankyouverymuch...
[link|http://www.linuxiso.org/distro.php?distro=4|http://www.linuxiso....stro.php?distro=4]
(the best distro I have found for PPC)
Sourceforge has a lot of projects going but their site is becoming hard to navigate for morons like me.

I have been amazed at the quality of the OSX products. Unique freeware (open source for OS X) apps like TexShop, HenWen (available for Linux, also), Sharepoints, etc. are opening up the open source ethic/product to a much wider audience. This is a win not just for Mac converts but for the broader Linux/*nix market as well. Just my .02 copecks...

What the frip (frick) do I know, though?

New P.S.
Those were some seriously fascinating links you found...
Great reading material. Remind me to look up the spelling of shit I don't remember from now on.

:-O
