My parents had it on their first PC (they should of stayed with the Amiga). It wasn't a normal GUI but more like a GUI on top of Windows. My parents loved it, but it infuriated me. God did I hate that thing.
That machine was so funny too... the CD-ROM (2x) had caddies. To this day I don't understand the reasoning behind that one.
Brainstorm: How long have you been in North Bay? I seem to remember the Mac community was pretty sparse there about 5 years ago. I grew up in Corbeil and left after high school.
