Yeah, I can't speak for across the ocean but only here on the east
coast of the US. If I read your and others responses correctly then I
would assume that for at least 18 months OS9 will be the dominant OS
where you are. Most things I have seen are either 18 months behind or
ahead, like cell phone technology is 18 months behind here and fashion
is 18 months behind but a lot of music is 18 months ahead. This is not
always the case but it tends to be true.
SO if OS9 is still the dominant OS now for your market then you may see
what I am seeing over the next 18 months. Apple is pushing in that
direction and they can be persuasive. But Mac users can be the most
stubborn users in the world.
But, I stand by my statement: "OSX has proved to me that my
productivity has doubled since I switched and with each new flavor of
OSX has only gotten better." I have always been a user that would
'rather use my computer than fix/twiddle with my computer'. and OSX
allows for both. I can get more work done now in such a little amount
of time that my bosses have started to throw way too much work at me
and expecting me to get it done.
Case in point: I finished all of my code work on Friday and am just
turning it in today Wednesday ONLY because I can't let them expect that
quick of a turn around. That is due to OSX and also to how quickly I
can work in REV.
