Ars goes back to the future

Ars Technica subjected Andrew Cunningham to getting his work done on an 800MHz TiBook (in OS 9 and in 10.5). Admittedly, I, too, would find an 800MHz TiBook a bit trying, though I would not have installed Leopard on it. My slowest daily driver is the 1GHz iMac G4 and even that doesn't do much more than basic browsing. My 12" iBook G4/1.33 is about the slowest I'd like to be using for typical work. Fortunately, the quad still acquits itself very well!

  1. I have no problems with taking just my Pismo with me for the whole weekend outside the city. For basic browsing on mobile sites, Classilla is just enough - couple of years ago my phone did not have the power Pismo has and I was browsing the same sites as I do on G3. Long live OS9!
