coaxed to run on it without modification to the Mac. However, reality
often bites. In seeing how early a Mac unit might work well with Rev
and this CNC project I may be stuck with using a 6100 model because of
the limitations you are pointing out.
I am by first training an archaeologist and sometimes can't let go of a
In any case the CNC project is a very practically based real world
project and will be made to work on the first reasonable equipment
platform which may be an old Windows box. But, I would then work back

for the Mac which will run on pre-OS X computers might be useful to some
