I have a G4 that was the top of the line in 1998. It will die one of
these days. It's currently running OS 9.2.2. Someone else(who now lives
far away) installed the internal modem, SCSI for my scanner, and my
floppy drive (so I didn't have to go through hundreds of them for the
bits and pieces I might someday want again). I still have the floppies
and a number of Zips, all of which this computer can read.

This was posted in a forum recently and I thought it brought up some
very interesting points relating to the Eula. For reference:
This question is related to licensing OS X on a machine. The EULA says
it has to be an Apple computer, before the Apple License will apply,
which means Apple will only support OS X on Apple machines. So, I'm
wondering, when is a machine considered an Apple Mac, for the purposes
of Licensing and recieving support? Say I buy a Mac from Apple. Then the

As part of a design that I'm investigating, I am looking at connecting
a number of FPGA based MACs to a dedicated broadcom switch chip. The
difficulty with this is that to interface both chips, I need to have

Is it possible to connect two MAC (SGMII) directly point-to-point,
bypassing the PHY completely? Or is it necessary to have at least some
PHY functionality, even if it is a point to point link?

OK, so Apple's going to go to Intel CPUs. Now Macs are no longer
differentiated by a slow clock and superior instruction set--we've got
the same hackjob clusterfuck on speed PCs have been using for decades
now. And over the last few years Apple's gone away from SCSI, NuBus,
ADB, Localtalk, etc. And PCs have picked up USB, dropped floppies, and

Put an ethernet cable between them, enable tcp/ip and file sharing on

you do not need a cross-over cable between modern Macs.
