  Name Server Software: MacOS   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
MacOS 9 and earlier versions were not designed for servers.
Despite this MacOS often forms the basis for low to medium range servers when ease of administration is more important than that last 0.1% of uptime.
MacOS X is expected to have a large range of DNS server options, based on its Unix roots.

 MacOS 8.1
One of the more obvious improvements introduced in MacOS 8 is the 3-d window appearance.
MacOS 8 also can set a background image rather than just a monochrome pattern.
Finally, MacOS 8 uses several "assistants" (or wizards in Microsoft-speak) to guide users through a series of complicated tasks.

MacOS is an in-house development from the company Apple and not usably on x86 processors.
By Macintosh hardware of its own MacOS takes a special role under desktop systems and is used because of his simple operation and software support preferentially not only in the professional computer aided design.

 ResExcellence | MacOS X VM Swap Guide   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Remember that MacOS X employs a paging arrangement based on the Mach kernel and that the swapfile is being used for work other than exchanging chunks of memory when RAM is oversubscribed.
One of my biggest gripes with MacOS X is that although the Aqua interface is beautiful, it requires tons of overhead and a very fast processor to keep things moving along.
The MacOS X Drive Setup Utility limited me to 1.5 gig on the swap partition and although I have plenty of drive space, anything in excess of a 500 meg swap partition seemed to be a waste.

 The Labs: MacOS
MacOS X could become the solution many are looking for: simple GUI (and tons of quality software) with stability (& features) of UNIX.
MacOS X is most promising to bring the best of GUI and best of MACH kernel and (Free)BSD userland together, and the recent developments have shown it is worth it.
MacOS 9 or MacOS X may never work with 68K CPU (which Basilisk II is emulating).

 ResExcellence | Hacking MacOS 9.1   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
If the rumor mill is to be believed, this is the last iteration of the Classic MacOS before we move to the new BSD MacOS X. This report covers MacOS 9.1 primarily from a ResEdit hacking perspective, though I include additional interesting observations.
For starters, MacOS 9.1 won't work as a Classic environment for MacOS X (so I bet we're in for at least one more update).
In MacOS 9.1, the meaning of the check box is opposite of what it was under MacOS 9.0.4.

However, when booting into MacOS X on these machines, the full capacity of the drive will NOT be respected without the addition of our SpeedTools ATA Extended Capacity Support Driver for MacOS X.
When running MacOS X, the first volume will be visible and fully functional, but the second volume will not show up, and, therefore, will not be subject to any data loss or corruption.
Additionally, when returning to a MacOS 9 or earlier environment, the drive containing MacOS X 10.1 may mount with a generic icon or may not mount at all.

 MacOS & SAP   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
MacOS 9.x: After installing the SAPgui for Java and MRJ, there is in your Preferences folder -in your System Folder- a 'SAP' folder a file called 'SAPGUI for Java Configuration'.
MacOS 9.x & MacOS X: Now download this (SAP preference) file, and when working with MacOS 9.x, after that, drag that file manually to your SAP folder (see the path above).
MacOS X users should copy this file to their desktop for later use.

 XScreenSaver on MacOS with X11
The integration of MacOS and X11 is quite the little Frankenstein, and xscreensaver bumps up against a few rough edges that wouldn't matter to most other X11 programs.
Then turn off the built-in MacOS screen saver ("Screen Effects" in the system preferences) and configure your preferred xscreensaver settings by running the xscreensaver-demo program.
This is because it is impossible for X programs to intercept all keystrokes: if xscreensaver were locking the screen, the user would still be able to, for example, use Command-TAB to navigate through the Dock icons and launch other programs such as Terminal.

 YA Unofficial MacOS X Not on G3 Macs FAQ
Question: Which computers probably will run MacOS X? Answer: First, there is the officially supported hardware: Power Macintosh G3 models (aka "beige G3s"), the PowerBook G3 (the square-ish one), the G3 PowerBook (the swoopy one), the iMac (all colors), and the G3 "blue and white".
Question: Any computers that definately won't run MacOS X? Answer: Nothing is certain at this point, but I would say that owners of the first generation of Power Macintoshes (the 6100, 8100, and 9100, and some clones), and all Powerbooks prior to the 3400 (including the 1400, 2400, and 5300) should give up hope.
Answer: Yes and no. This question is complicated by the fact that there actually are two products expected with the MacOS X name: MacOS X Server (due February 1999) and the other version, which is sometimes called MacOS X Consumer (expected by the end of 1999).

 Linux/BSD/MacOS on Titanium
To partition the 20GB hard disk for three OSes, use MacOS X software "Disk Utility" which is contained in the MacOS X install CD-ROM.
Note that the Linux and MacOS partition should be placed before the BSD partition because of the 10GB bootloader limitation.

 IRAF and MacOS X   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Since MacOS X is in many ways another flavor of UNIX, it was possible to port IRAF to MacOS X. With IRAF 2.12 and later, you can now run it alongside Photoshop, Office, and iTunes.
It's worth mentioning that your installation of MacOS X must have included the "BSD Subsystem" which is installed by default.
You should be familiar with the MacOS X installer.

I can't remember what exactly, but I've been told that 8.5 has some major bug (perhaps memory manager related????) that was fixed in 8.6.
