New Gear

Work was kind enough to buy me one of these.

Setup was easy - booted the old G4 PowerBook into Firewire target disk mode at the right time, and forty minutes later (give or take - I wasn't timing it) all of my old files were on the new disk. All of my old setup information came across as well. Reinstalled Firefox - there was my history and bookmarks. Reinstalled Thunderbird - hey look, my email. And so on.

I'm not an old Mac user - the G4 was my first. I'm not religous about using OS X - I simply like an operating system that will allow me to play system administrator but will otherwise get out of my way. This OS X does very very well.
