bring back the old theme tune!!

Actually, it would be an excellent service to the tech/Apple community to run the EFI-X experiment. Find out what it takes to run Mac OS on cheap hardware. The tinkerers will -love- hearing about all the hoops you have to jump through, and those 'with work to do' will rest easy that any extra they paid for genuine Apple hardware allows them to get on with what they do with the minimum of fuss.

Did I hear correctly, that -someone- is trying to run Final Cut (Express or Pro?) on a 6 year old Mac that specifically stated at install time that it was not supported? That's the kind of bind stubbornness that keeps Microsoft in business. "It says not, but I think I can make it work." Maybe you can, but if it doesn't really do the job you need it for, what's the point?

I do agree that the Final Cut way of working sucks, though. Archaic film editing metaphors like slip/ripple/roll have no place in the computer age. Give me cut, copy, paste any day. That said, Final Cut is how things are done (and apparently take it or leave it). I've never heard an artist talk about spline curves, but that never put Adobe out of business, even if I don't use their products for this very reason.

iMovie does picture in picture and a whole bunch of things you might not expect, these days (apparently without a timeline). There's a bunch of videos at the iMove page, check out "Add titles, transitions, and effects" for the Picture-In-Picture (it's the last on the list).

"hat's the kind of bind stubbornness that keeps Microsoft in business"

Good to see Mac Idiots still troll MS users. I come to think that Mac users are symbiont life forms.

I just been reading a blog post from a mac fanboy , oh no windows 7 doesn't have exchange support out of the box!!

well nor does snow leopard without a CAL and SL doesn't support many feature's ......... i got the impression that he thinks companies go to the local pcworld to buy exchange server.

Also i think that you'll find MS had licenced exchange support code to apple like they had with the ipod.

Besides companies that use SA with their VL get Outlook Licences with their exchange CAL's. I expect that MS will revert back to offering it included with all exchange CALS soon.

anyway FreeBSD rules!!!

I second "FreeBSD rules!!!" as I have been running it in VirtualBox and it works well, just not as a full time OS...

anyway, you do need Outlook or some other Microsoft compatible mail client (not sure if Live Mail does it) and obviously and Exchange Server.

Call me stupid, but I'm surprised ISPs that give you an included e-mail haven't thought of using exchange yet...

stupid :-) .... some of the BT packages use Exchange and have OWA access

October 27, 2009 | Registered CommenterSupernova

well, I've not used BT... (they rip people off), still, more ISPs could use it...

1000's of companies offer hosted exchange accounts.

there nears no point in having it unless your a group, the group in groupware is a dead givaway

do you actually know what exchange is?
