Re: No good idea

I always had just a single, big partition, since I really, absolutely hate dividing my HD space without a good reason. Being able to choose with option to boot into X or 9 is great, but seriously, as long as you're not a ProTools power user, how often do you do this? And 99% of the time you'll have to look at this useless OS 9 partition...

If I can't boot into X for some (bad) reason, I'll boot from my first-aid-CD anyway, and if I can boot into X, I do that and switch with system prefs. Takes a minute or two, but saves me from having this additional partition (BTW, tried this for some time, really didn't like it).

Oh, and I use an old Extended KB II (ADB) plugged into an iMate, and it's not recognized at early startup time, so I have to get my Apple USB KB out of the closet anyway to use option-boot ;-)
