Software for older versions of OSX

iMac G3I have a couple of Macs in my life these days: A shiny new 24″ iMac, and an old G3 iMac like the photo here.

The new one is running OS 10.4 – so no dramas there. But this old one is on 10.2. Not that old – but I can’t seem to find any software for it! Everything I find (either free or commercial) wants a newer flavour of OSX.

So with the exception of Firefox (which I’m using at the moment) I’m stuck with whatever came on the OSX Jaguar CDs.

That strikes me as a bit weird. Surely there must be a place to go for older OSX software. Anyone know of such a place?


What’s all this about then?

Everything “cool” these days seems to be prefixed with an “i”.

So what does someone who’s been using Windows since version 3.1 make of all this?

As they saying goes: if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

I purchased my first iPod – a Nano –  back in October 2005, and fell in love. I have since added a Touch and a Shuffle to the lineup. Let me tell you: the Touch has been an experience! More on that later.

As far as the bigger ticket items are concerned, I was fortunate enough to win an iMac at a conference last year (thanks guys!) That was a real bonus – being able to try out a Mac without having for put my hand in my pocket!

It seems that more and more people are switching from PC to Mac – so we all must be having similar issues. Like not being able to maximise a window. And plenty of other stuff. So I thought I’d post some experiences and observations here. Feel free to add yours in the comments too, and maybe together we’ll figure out all these “i” things!
