Hey everyone. I just wanted to ask around and see what people think. Now that I am going to be getting my iBook 700 soon, what OS do people recommend I put on it? I know there have been a lot of problems with 10.2.8 on portables... so should I stick to 10.2.6? Also, when Panther comes out in a few days... should I go to Panther? Will it run any slower and will I experience any problems? From experience, on my last two OldWorld G3 Powerbooks, I stuck to classic OSs 8.6 and 9.2 because I saw that it wasn't to comfortable with Jaguar....
Mac... or bust!
*MacBook 2.16Ghz, 2GB, 120GB, SD*
+ *Nokia N80 w/ Mac Media Transfer*
= A combination almost as good as an iPhone...
Panther all the way - it is just plain fabulous - this from someone who would not go to X for a variety of reasons mainly speed. Panther fulfills the promise Jag just hinted at.
Sit at 10.2.6 and snag Panterh immediately

hey Neema, I have installed OSX and all the updates including OSX 10.2.8 on the ibook 700 and no problems at all...I have had 10.2.8 running on a ibook 800, flatpanel imac 800, and a dual G4...no problems...But YES I WANT PANTHER! I heard many good reports too! thanks Mark

I use a 15" Macbook Pro, Mac Pro, and a Core 2 Duo Mac Mini. I also use an Apple Cube dual 500 with a radeon 7500 and 1.5 gigs of ram.
Look fwd to panther as well. But Jag seems to run nicely on my Pismo. But I will say that perf might be a touch more of concern esp when RAM is going to be limited (640 Max). Could I go back to 9.2.2?? Not sure... I did like OE though.
