I've used a Mac (there are 3 in the house) and I can't say I'm
impressed with OS X. I will say it's lightyears better than that quaint
little alternative OS from Redmond, though.

All 3 of the ones here are PPC models. But OS X is still OS X, though
they've surely changed, added and subtracted some things since they
moved to the new hardware and put out another version or two. Of the
three, one is actually mine. It has Debian on it. It's providing
content filtering for another Mac and an X86 machine, both of which the
son has. I'll expand it eventually to handle usenet and mail for me.

Two of the models are too underpowered to do any VMs in. The third one
is the wife's. She has no interest in running anything else, especially
