You also need a retail version of Windows.

>I owned a Mac II back in the day and was an ACTA customer. I’m looking forward to trying Opal.

If you liked Acta, then I think you’ll like Opal even more (I think the number one request we got back then was multiple selection, which is fully implemented). It runs on Tiger or Leopard.

>- OmniOutliner basic flavour comes with the OS (as distinct from the Pro flavour, which is the one I referrred to above)

I don’t think this is true—it comes with some *machines* but is not part of Mac OS X. (Thankfully for all of the dozens of other Mac outliners.)

> Some people feel that Mac users are much more likely to upgrade their operating systems and stay on the cutting edge than Windows users

Isn’t that because we don’t have to wait 5 years to get the opportunity?

- I can’t speak for other machines, but OO came loaded with other software and OS on my MacBook

- Thought I did mention TAO (on page 1): anyway : http://artec-software.com/products/neo/ (not to be confused with the completely different outliner for Windows…)

- Agree with Franz about stuffing in extra RAM, which by all accounts is highly beneficial - I made the mistake of buying it from Apple - Crucial RAM (http://www.crucial.com) is said to be almost as good and significantly less expensive.

And http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Mac/ shows you how easy it is to install extra memory in your iBook or Powerbook. :-)

Ouch!

I get my RAM from Ramjet. Anyone but Apple.
