My copy of the Mac OS X beta arrived yesterday. While I’m sure I’ll end up writing a much longer piece with overall impressions and some detailed information for you techies, my first impressions were powerful ones. I installed it on my G3 Powerbook and on a Blue and White G3 tower yesterday. Installation is easy as pie. The Aqua interface didn’t annoy me as much as I thought. I had a little bit of a hard time getting the Classic(read legacy) Mac OS environment to work properly, but it was the fault of extensions that communicate directly with hardware. It’s seems very powerful, and it works. By the time this thing gets to market, it’s going to be a juggernaut.
