In case anyone was wondering, I installed Mac OS 8.0 over the weekend.

Simply amazing improvement. The new OT and PPP drivers work much better with
CU than the 7.6.1 system did (I had to switch to Free PPP to make it work,
this was not necessary with 8.0)

A CU note - When installing have your WhitePine 2.0 CD handy since if you
do a clean install, you may lose your codecs. Also make sure you backup
your preferences or the phone book will go away (ditto Netscape).

I downloaded iVisit, will play with it after 5.15 PDT.
