Quite right, too. Clearly an error on my part based on my lack of Mac OS
familiarity. Duly retracted and hopefully an end to this thread. A timely
reminder to me that it's not a good idea to write about matters that I am
not 100% familiar with, since it's both misleading and unhelpful. Point
taken. I stick by my general thrust of argument however that the Mac does
not handle virtal memory as well as '95 and that the Mac OS is less stable
using a range of different softwares.
