Also, I have a Wacom Tablet and a new Microsft Wireless Intellimouse Explorer. To use these devices on a Mac with OSX, do I need to install drivers or should I just let OSX detect these devices?
Also, I was talking to one of my teachers today and he really likes the new G4s but told me that they run a lot better under OSX rather then 9. If I just want to run mainly new Adobe and Macromedia software, will I ever need to run OS9? Could I just delete it if I wanted to?
I'll try and answer these two... the Microsoft mouse should run if you just plug it in to the Mac.
If you haven't ever used Mac OS 9, go straight to Mac OS X. Mac OS X is way better and more stable than Mac OS 9. You don't have to remove Mac OS 9 from the HD (you can if you want), just don't install Mac OS 9 apps. Try to use Mac OS X apps.
