  2. Interesting, but must have been slow:)
    I installed Windows Vista on a K6-2, 500Mhz with 256MB RAM, the boot took about 5 minutes, took hours to install, but until Vista worked more or less, of course, after I installed off a lot of services.

    The difference is a Opera is open source. I'm pretty sure Apple is not...:D

    Opera isn't open source.
  5. I still have a Thinkpad 300 with 160MB RAM and 20GB HDD. Maybe I will also try to install W7 if I can start the screen (that and it's batteries were the problems that made me stop using it).
  6. Haha thats great that it was installed on such an old machine, it's just the processor taking a while to process all the info, thats all.

    And for you Apple fanboys, why do you post here? why can't you post in the apple forums or something, jeez. I still have no reason to switch to an Apple Macintosh, which I know has great hardware, and warranty, don't get me wrong, but I just don't care for Macintosh Operating System X (yet) as I have been unable to use it enough to get into it.

    The only way i'd ever get into Macintosh OS would be to have it ported to common personal computers, rather than just Mac personal computer hardware. It isn't that I won't switch, I just don't want to pay a premium for the hardware, and the warranty or support, as I can fix my own computer just fine. That is why i'll stick with custom that I build myself, and run Windows and Linux on.
