Finally!!! I've managed to get a good web connection at home, and after much hassle downloaded a decent browser.
I also have a good space for my own homepage, and are looking into the mystery of html...
But as always, all - or most of - the good downloads are for PC, or OS X...
So I'm wondering - any of you have any good suggestion for a Mac user? - I have OS 9.2...

suggestion: get a PC; they're not as insulting to your intelegence!

OR... load linux onto your mac! That's the only thing that macs really excell at-unix machined

What kind of downloads were you looking for? I have OS 9.2, and have gotten a few interesting things. A lot of the stuff that is free for windows is shareware on macs until you really start looking in the disty corners of the web, though.

If you can install OS-X on it, you really should - it works WAY better. And all of the good new downloads for mac are all OS-X - It will save you a lot of headaches in the long run. Email me and I'll try and point you in the right direction.

Oh and duckie, you gotta play with OS-X - I thought the same thing before it came out - even linux can't beat a real BSD machine with a pretty graphics layer.

I played with OSx a bit and... jeesh. I really hate how goddamn user friendly mac makes everything! I like having easy access to system settings and resources to TWEAK and play! Not to mention the whole linear monopoly that Mac has going on is just a pain in the ass.

Well, I guess the user-friendly bit is why I got a Mac in the first place, I reckon they're a godsend to ppl like me, with either no time or patience to fiddle around the PC too much.
And *blush* I must admit, the iMacs wew just out when I was shopping for a computer, and the grey one looked just too good... OK, I'm such a girl... But I'm pretty sure it's too old to run the OS X

OS-X Gives you more access to system settings than windows. Open up the Terminal and type some UNIX commands - all of the interface settings are stored in unix style config files. You can even edit the menus of all your apps (using vi or emacs if you want). And now that apple released their X-Windows thing, you can compile most linux programs. I don't mind having an easy way to start and stop the web server on my laptop as long as I can get in there with a text editor and configure the thing unix style. If it was just pretty and didn't let me do what I wanted, I wouldn't be using it - but it does everything my Linux workstations can do, and runs most of the same programs - plus photoshop and all the mac stuff.

Kat,

If you're saying you have a grey imac, then you shouldn't have any problem running OS X. I have an older imac DV running it at home, with no problems. I have added more RAM, but otherwise it would most likely be slower than the graphite DV's they released. Devin is right when he says all the newest, best downloads are for X. When I upgraded a few months ago I went a little download crazy...

As far as programs, OS X comes with iphoto, which you can use to re-size and optimize stuff for web. Otherwise I would check out mac cult sites like macaddict.com for tips on free downloads. As a class-one nerd I would recommend learning how to make very simple web pages in simpletext first, so that you really learn HTML before going to a program that does it for you. It will make life much easier down the road...and all you need is simpletext and a web browser. There are lots of good books and webpages on it too...

Anyway, don't let the mac bashers get ya down. I do 3D animation on PCs, and I always look forward to going home to my mac at the end of the day. I teach Photoshop and Flash to people who have never used a mac before, and with OS X they feel comforable in a day or two...versus a year or two. I just yawn and shake my head when people start in. You keep your ugly, ineffecient, beige reject from the 50's and I will keep my mac. I don't see any reason that a computer shouldn't be aesthetically pleasing. After all, I stare at it 8-12 hours a day!


kira

I like both mac and PC. I like mac because its realllly good for art programs and what not.. and pc' s are fun for video games. However, your more at risk to get virus's on a PC than you are a Mac.
