But the Classic Mac OS still hung on for a few years after OSX's introduction, and during the Mac OS 9 era, Apple was already making a comeback.

Makes me sad to think the only practical way one can escape from Unix is to switch to Windows and avoid nearly every smartphone model on the market.

I know all about the OS Wars, but what was it about Unix that allowed it to take over the market, and when?

I might as well do a run-down of my PCs again (After all, in the time since the last time I actually posted on here, some things have changed with my fleet; such as giving them names to easily identify them):

Main desktop: Custom (All-new equipment)
Name: 2k-tan (It's pretty obvious where this name came from, even if it doesn't run on Windows 2000)
Processor: Intel Core i7 (3.4Ghz quad-core)
RAM: 4GB (For now, at least)
OS: Windows 7 Professional (Service Pack 1)

Secondary desktop: Custom (Build around an old Dell desktop)
Name: Frankenstein (Since it was created with used parts during one of my mad scientist moments)
Processor: Intel Pentium III (600Mhz)
RAM: 512MB
OS: Windows 2000 Professional (Service Pack 4 w\ unofficial Daylight Savings Time patch)

Classic gaming desktop: NEC Powermate VP75

Experimental desktop: NEC Powermate 433D
Name: Minefield (It's not exactly the safest place to be)
Processor: Intel 486SX (33Mhz)
RAM: 16MB
OS: Anything I can get to run on it (There's a reason it's the experimental desktop)

Main Laptop: Compaq Presario CQ61
Name: Asagi (My favorite character in the Disgaea series)
Processor: AMD Sempron (2.1Ghz)
RAM: 2GB
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium (Service Pack 1)

Old laptop that just won't die: Compaq Presario 1655

I've had that VP75 for about 15 years, and it still works perfectly. I faintly remember when it arrived all those years ago; my parents unpacking it and struggling to install Windows 95 because our tech guy, while nice enough to install a 200MB hard drive before sending it to us, wasn't nice enough to setup Windows.

The only computers that have enhanced graphics are the Gateway with a EVGA NVidia Geforce 9500 1GB and the Power Macintosh G3 with whatever nvidia card is in that old thang...

I was selected to be a tester of Lion.

So, I just finished torrenting eOS (Elementary OS)
It just came out yesterday. Unfortunately, there wasn't a regular download option. Just torrent or have them ship it to you for $10
and so I decided to torrent. it didn't take long, it took like 3 hours. :U

eOS is by far, my favorite linux distribution.
I'm not kidding. I have all teh animal crossing games and play them everyday.
My profile pic is from deviant art. It's not mine.

Red-Machine

It took less than 10 minutes for me. :3
