hmm, so roughly 3 grand for the privelge of using OS X?Panther will pull a lot of users over - especially in combo with the G5.
Panther is apparently supposed to make G3 run OS X even faster, and improve hardware performance on all fronts. No doubt your iBook will run even faster with Panther on there. I myself am expecting signicificant improvements on my iMac DV 400.Has anybody tested a development copy of panther on an ibook? I would be interested to hear if there is an optimization for the lowly G3
Odd, I've heard rumours floating around that certain types of PCI USB cards (that use the same chipset as some of the earlier built in USB ports) are read by the OS to be identical to actually having built in USB.Panther doesn't even support really old hardware - the beige G3s aren't supported, for example. The criterion is whether or not the Mac was originally equipped with USB ports - upgrade cards don't cut it.
