Stuck in the past
Authored by: frankt on Apr 15, '06 03:36:46PM

I now have an "old" QuickSilver 2002 that is maxed out with add-ons. I will keep this machine until death due us part and upgrade Max OS X on it for as long as it is supported. I will buy the best new dual processor G5 I can before they disappear from the sales channels and do the same to it. I am old and retired and have no interest (or resources) in following Apple while it reshapes itself into just another generic PC clone manufacturer. I choose to be "stuck in the Motorola era" just as I chose to be stuck in the "60's". I have owned new Apple computers since 1986 but the end will soon be drawing near. No more "latest and greatest" for me.

I frankly don't understand this.

I have a MacBook Pro and it's the furthest thing from a "generic PC clone." If you used one, and didn't know it was Intel-powered, you'd be saying "what a fantastic, unbelievably fast PowerBook! They finally figured out how to put a G5 into a portable!" The user experience is NO different from any other Mac, except that PowerPC programs are a little slower than expected, which won't matter anymore by the time your G4 runs out of steam.

You don't need to run Boot Camp or deal with Windows to run an Intel Mac. As a Mac, it works the same as your G4 or G5, except that the user interface is scorchingly fast. Before you abandon the platform over differences you (trust me) won't even be able to notice, try an Intel iMac or MBP.
