    system 7.5.x was a disaster for mac's, which coincided with the firing
    of founder (and GOD) Steve Jobs and later Gil Amelio (turn-around artist
    who wouldnt work without a golden parachute- and watched Apple's
    fortunes fall),
    when John Scully (a capable technologist who was responsible for the
    gains- and losses- of Apple while awaiting the Return of the King- i
    mean, God) decided to work with IBM to create a better processor while
    opting for cheaper hardware profiles (i.e. opting for industry-standard
    buses instead of the old pds, IDE etc.),
    and allowing feature creep into the o/s while certain configurations
    required bug fixes in the o/s which required that almost every machine
    had a different version of the o/s shipped with it- and sometimes the
    o/s STILL didnt work, so 7.5.7 and 7.6 eventually came free when released.
    the most stable versions of the 7.5.x era are: 7.5.1, 7.5.3, 7.5.7
    if for some reason your mac couldnt run one of these, you were stuck
    with a crappy performa likely bought from sears or futureshop, which had
    their own configurations and had their own o/s version included.
    these o/s versions would have the 'r' (revision designation) tacked on
    the end followed by a number (i.e. 7.5.2r3)
    the first powerPC Native o/s was o/s 8.1, which meant that although
    every PowerPC came shipped with 7.6 (thereby missing the 7.5.x fiasco
    altogether) and above, it was 8.1 and above that was designed for the
    ppc- meaning that the old '040 macs could run only up to 8.0 (8.1
    installation disc would have 8.0 included)
    The first feneration powerPC (601 processors) macs could run o/s 8.0
    through 8.6, while the second generation (603 and 604 processors) could
    run up to 9.1
    the g3s could run 8.1 up to X, whilst the g4 series ran o/s 9 and x in
    dual mode.

    Right now I am pissing about on a HP B180 with HP/UX 10.2 (or
    something close). Someone was dicking with the networking and I think
    they have the CDE trying to mount via NFS.

    They were working on Windows 7 before they even released Vista, just as they
    were working on Vista before they released XP. Any company that wants to
    stay in business is working on 2 to 3 generations of a product at any given

    And not everyone hates Vista, just those that have closed minds and aren't
    willing to learn new things.

    I have an old VAX3600 with the anti-christ (vms) loaded (last time I
    looked). But I don't have a network card for it. I have a serial mux
    for dumb terminals...

    Voluntary use of VMS is grounds for commitment.

  16. Vista is over-coded shit, even for the corporate environment. There is
    absolutely no excuse for an OS that consumes hardware and time the way
    Vista does.
