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.

Hmm, my iMac left the shop a day late, and is currently being shipped out from Cork. Well, perhaps Monday will be the day %)

Well, it seems, my iMac is still sitting around somewhere in the UK.

Well, it is here, came yesterday. More stuff soon to come. Right now there is simply too much of that work thing getting in the way %)
