    If you´ve memorized all my posts you know I´ve got an old iMac/350 with 192 MB RAM. I use 9.2...
    How well would 10.2 work on my mac, anyone tried it a comp this old? I´ve never tried OSX at all so please enlighten me.

    At my old high school I installed it on a G3 300 tower, albeit with 256 MB of RAM. It's not a speed demon but it's usable, and I'd gladly sacrifice OS9's speed for OSX's stability any day.

    10.2 will perform reasonably on that, i've put it on a couple of low end imacs, one a 233 with only 96mb of ram, it worked pretty well considering. It all depends on what you use the machine for really.

    I don´t play that much anymore mainly internet and perhaps some word processing. I´ll consider trying it.
