Are Mac OS X 10.5.8's iLife programs safe to use in Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x?
Someone told me that Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x do not come with iLife
like the older Mac OS X versions (e.g., 10.5.x). I did not know this!
Since my client uses iPhoto that came preinstalled on his old 2008
MacBook Pro's Mac OS X 10.5.x (10.5.8 right now), can he use the old one
from 10.5.8? Or will he need a third party replacement (needs to
import/copy the old image files) or buy a new iPhoto version for his
photo(graph)s? I recalled he did not like iPhoto and wonder if the new
one is any better.
Thank you in advance. :)

Your Mac won't start up in Mac OS X (Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier)
Nothing can be more frustrating than turning on your Mac only to find
that it won't start up. Instead of seeing the Finder, you see a blue or
gray screen, an icon of a broken folder, a kernel panic, a flashing
question mark, or a computer that just sits there. What can you do?
Don't worry. It could be a simple issue that you can fix yourself.
Note: This article applies to Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier.
Tip: If your computer won't start at all, skip to "You see a blank,

I read that Mac OS X has a so-called classic mode which emulates Mac
OS 9.x so that older applications can still be run.

Mac OS 9.x required for the classic mode or does it have to be bought

I was able to boot into either partition effortlessly. However, in
order to improve the performance of Virtual PC 6.1 running on OSX

applied the combo bundle to update OS to 10.2.8. This has made all the

performance for Win98, NT, and W2K.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Just a reminder to coincide with today's release of Mac OS X 10.3
("Panther"), the MIT Kerberos team has released an updated version of
the Mac OS X Kerberos Extras that work with both Mac OS X 10.2
(Jaguar) and Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther).
The Mac OS X Kerberos Extras allow CFM-based applications, such as
Eudora and Fetch, to work with OS X's built-in Kerberos.
Older releases of the OS X Kerberos Extras will not work with Mac OS X
10.3. You must have the latest release (which was released back in
June) for it to work with Panther. However...Uninstalling PinePico-4.58-SSL-10.2.pkg on Mac OS X 10.2.8

Restore from the backup you made before you updated to 10.3.9, or reinstall
and update from your install CD.
How do yu restore from a backup on a mac? Also, if I reinstall from
the CDs wont that remove my applications?
