It would make sense to see ports for both mac and linux as so many people are leaving the microsoft world even if at a slow pace! my main reason for not going totally reliant on linux is because I am unable to run things like BVE4.
well seeing as mackoy forbids the engineering of his code... to a degree yes! I don't know a lot about mac's but I would guess it would be hard for us for that reason. It probably wouldn't be hard for mackoy however.
Now after several dud CD-Rs (which were duly dealt with by a 9.81m/s^2 brick ) I have managed to burn myself a KNOPPIX CD, which I'm currently typing from... now, if TC can get BVE4 working under Linux I will be very happy to say goodbye to Bindoze!
I'm preparing day by day to leave bindoze! The second I buy my mac mini will be the second I never turn back to windows, well I'll keep using til my mac turns up and then this pc will resort to being my errrr...... my music stand! well I might replace a few parts and use it as a media center.
Well - it's the only Linux I've used, so I can't make huge comparisons.
BUT it's 10x better than Bindoze, the only issue is being CD-based there's a slight lag sometimes, and it can't access my NTFS HDD, but otherwise it's fine. Might not be able to use Knoppix permanently - but it's an excellent way to @put your toes in@ to Linux.
you should be able to read an ntfs hard drive, but it will only write to fat and ext3 or whatever the linux partition is called these days! I managed to read ntfs, only way to access my mp3's, you might be better of getting a hard drive install and partitioning (I found it easier to get two hdd's and make one for bindoze and one for linux) I've never used a mac really, well a few times in the shop, so don't know what to expect lol!
