Leave AOL Alone!
Authored by: macguitar on Apr 15, '01 09:22:20PM

I'm not viewing OS X Hints over AOL, I use it as a secondary account. I have a cable modem. Why does everyone have a beef against AOL? Sheesh! :(

I get their BYOA TCP/IP access for only $4.95/month (special offer I got way back) so to have their services for that cheap a month is worth it to me.

Seriously, you trying to tell me that AOL sucks and that I shouldn't be using them is just as bad as the reason people like you say "Don't use AOL, cause they are like Microsoft because THEY control what you can see and do."

Yes - their installers suck and they need to have better beta-testing, but at least they're OS X'izing everything.

Didn't mean to harsh on your AOL ... it started as way more mac-friendly than any other ISP, hence my choice to get them in 90-91. But once the features kept coming and coming, and updates, etc. it became just about the most un-Mac ISP of them all.

I wouldn't mind beta testing over AOL though, b/c I develop and cannot dispute their popularity but would fry my eyes over the install process instead. But as far as OSX users go, I'll wait. AOL is for my PC box, anyway ;) (it also makes a good jukebox)...
