A couple of things really....

Zeroswamp, you've mentioned some variant of Soulseek that's somehow better than v139... but I can't find it.... 139 BITES on Virtual PC, so anything else is worth a try....

Which brings me to my second point... there is a Linux version of Soulseek that purports to work on OSX.... you can find more information at http://www.sensi.org/~ak/pyslsk/.

Now I know bugger all about Linux/Unix, so have carried on regardless and grabbed a copy of the new Apple variant of X11. :wink:

Anyone got any idea what to do next? Em and I would be most grateful if we could make it work without fucking Virtual PC.... :D

Icky.

You have to see and use OSX doing ANYTHING before you'd realise your error.... even web pages look nicer than on my nasty work PC, 2 screens or and all, because all the text is smooth... it makes everything look pretty.

:p

Yeah, but on everything else, you're at least 40% less efficient than Emma and I.... :P And you're not very cool, either....

Cheers,
Simon

Eh. I've got PCs and Macs, and although OSX is a HUGE improvement from 9, OSX is just to basic. Not too mention I've found alot of bugs in its TCP/IP network. (which should have been solid since it unix).

Bottom line, Macs ship with a one-button mouse. How are you gonna be more productive if you can't even right-click? Booya!

I use my Mac for image processing and fireWire.

Stay away from iTunes. It's the devil (RIAA) play thing.

Que? :P

Anyway, what's wrong with iTunes... I've not heard anyone complain about it, and it's better than anything I've found on the PC (WinAmp icky).

i've never met a professional graphic designer who prefers to work on a pc in my life - i've met many that have to and by and large they hate it!

I currently have Photoshop, Image Ready and Dreamweaver MX on my PC and they truly BLOW CHUNKS compared to the same versions of the same apps on the Mac.... Dreamweaver in particular bites, whilst everything in Photoshop takes soooooooooooo loooooooooooonnnngggg, and my PC is (on paper) much faster than my Mac.

Interesting. I've been thinking of getting Photoshop for my PC, now that I have a digital camera. Perhaps I'll have to find something else. No way would I switch to a Mac, as I'm not a designer and the Mac disadvantages would be way too many.

riko you'll probably be fine with photoshop on the pc if you're just going to be manipulating small scale images from a digital camera - i regularly have to work with 100MB+ image files so i understandably need the speed of a mac!

seriously. for about 2/3 the cost, you can get a faster PC. Plus you have a free market with parts from chips, motherboards, memory, and hard drives. The only advantage my MAC had, was the firewire port, I say had cuz I got a $25 PCI card for firewire ports on my PC.

btw. now Macs can lock up and crash just like PCs, thanks to OSX!

macs were always able of locking up & crashing - i find mine much more stable now on OSX as you have the ability to force quite programs a lot easier than before

& my reference to my mac being faster was in specific reference to running photoshop, it runs quicker & better on a mac than on a pc

i've no doubt that for most people having a pc is a quicker, cheaper & easier option but my point was & still is that the majority of professional Graphic designers still use macs as a matter of course... the amount of problems i'd have with stuff going cross platform to other designers, photographers, printers etc doesn't bare thinking about!

Windows 95 (insert alternate year here) = Mac 87

OSX makes Windows 2000 feel like Windows 3.1
