An Apple a day ...

... keeps Windows away. So they say. I ordered a 20" iMac (2.16 GHz, 256 MB graphics) last week-end, and with any luck it will be here by Friday.

With the Apple II (europlus and IIe) being the first desktop computers I´ve used, and with the amazing design and hardware facts, this was just the thing to blow this years bonus payment on. Well, that, and that now, with OSX my trusty HP715/100 under NeXTStep gets a worthy successor/neighbour.

I will not be Windows-free, however... I need it for the games. Which about sets things right, I can just about stomach it as the game console OS.

For the multiple-OS approach here´s a link (in German). The Mac will not boot a regular CD. Why? It´s got no old-style BIOS anymore, but a more recent and powerfull boot loader, and Apple BootCamp is the way around this. From what I´ve read the solution is elegant.

I´ll keep you posted.
