I'm not taking sides here, these are just my thoughts about CUSM
development. Although I have no experience of using a Mac I imagine that
CUSM is alot easier to develop on one. I've been told it is alot easier to
set up anyway!

I use a 386DX for CUSM and it is much more fun than an afternoon with Sonic
The Hedgehog, so I've been told :-) (sorry for lowering the tone) . There
is too much evidence in the computer world of developers etc. rushing out a
product just to keep the customers happy, then the customers complain
because it is full bugs. Give the developers a chance! Have patience. If
I'm being naive and over optimistic where is the next PC version then? Us
PCers still exist you know. :-)

If you're reading this Rick as you didn't buy Macs last year could you send
me some of your change from the PCs so I can buy one. :-)

What is the Internet? (Maybe)

At each intersection in Indra's Net is a light-reflecting jewel ... and each
jewel contains another Net, ad infinitum. The jewel at each intersection
exists only as a reflection of all the others and hence it has no
self-nature. Yet it also exists as a separate entity to sustain the others.
Each and all exist in their mutuality ....
