I’m an idiot.

I’m an idiot. I thought, hey, OS X is a lot more stable now and my friend has the latest beta. I should try it out! So, I wiped my poor old Powerbook’s hard drive and installed everything. The one thing I forgot is that OS X is a pig. It’s a big giant memory eating sow. I forgot to take into consideration the fact that I have an old G3 with 128 megs of RAM. It’s sad, but that’s just not enough to run the beast that is OS X.

So, it’s Monday morning and I’m reinstalling my favorite config: OS 9 and YellowDog 2.0. I’ll run MOL, play Same Gnome, install AOLserver and Postgres and have some fun. Screw you, OS X. Even Windows 2000 will run on a P2-400 with 128 megs of RAM. So there.
