-- is this going to be the OS X way?<br><br>Nothing sarcastic here, just curious. With Jaquer, will the need to force quit decrease dramatically? Similarly, I find sharewares can sometimes cause memory leaks. Is this something that may go away with a new OS X.<br><br>Just curious.<br><br>Vijay: get a Mac with OS X. <br><br>(You've been warned..)<br><br>:-P<br><br>Do you rhumba? Excellent!

If you find shareware causing memory leaks, it's probably coincidence that it's under Mac OS X. Long running software with the slightest memory bugs can very easily eat up memory over a longer period of time.<br><br>And I think you can count on CarbonLib and other key software pieces getting steadily more robust and dependable, though that's certainly no guarantee that the apps you are apparently having to force quit will get better.<br><br>Just remember that, and this goes more for Carbon than Cocoa apps, Mac programmers haven't really had Carbon in a sime-final state for that long, and they and Apple are still working out all of the kinks in the API and library. As time goes on, Carbon will get better and faster, and Carbon apps will become more and more stable.<br><br>
Well, all I use on OS X is Mozilla, iTunes, QuickTime, Preview, BBEdit, TextEdit and Terminal (every now and then). I want to use iMovie, but no DV camera.<br><br>No haxies or any other launcher crap. The dock works for me. So, Mac OS X is working really well.<br><br>I need Illustrator 10 and Photoshop 7, but till I get them I have to boot to OS 9 to use Illustrator 9 and Photoshop 6, because I absolutely hate Classic and never use it.<br><br>I've actually been wanting to get the Adobe Design Collection for OS X (Illustrator 10, Photoshop 7, InDesign 2 and Acrobat 5) which comes to 2 more apps which I can learn to use since it's good to have extra skills in the resume. Same price as buying Illustrator 10 and Photoshop 7 seperately.<br><br>Check my blogger page.<br><br>--<br>I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile.
