A little OT- but the icon for a Windows computer in Leopard;

And the pic is real. It happens with some cheap 5 Tesco mouse.
ps. Leopard icons are huuuuuge.

Just use Ubuntu (Linux).
Download the LiveCD and run it. If it runs fine from the LiveCD, install it.
Ubuntu 7.10 comes with desktop effects that out-do Vista and its all FREE!
You can download an Windows Emulator for running MMF2 and so on.
That's what I did and I haven't regretted it since!

But that contradicts everyone here that says Vista is the ultimate OS

Switching OSes is never "just do this and it'll be all right". It takes time to get used to, effort to get some things working, etcetera. It's about what you feel most comfortable with, and what programs you use.

Speaking of which, I've been using Ubuntu 7.10 for a while and MMF2 works just fine. And Click games with MIDI are actually more enjoyable, as the songs suddenly sound way more awesome.

Windows XP kills MIDIs.
Older versions used the awesomer SoundCard synth by default...

I'd be tempted to give Ubuntu a go, but it's the rigmarole of getting drivers that I'm not keen on. I think I'm after something without mess (OSX) but with the whole "everythings free" thinking of Linux. But that also runs MMF2.

Just getting a bit sick of XP now. It's so troublesome with Bluetooth, it fails to connect to my wireless network automatically, I keep getting "paged pool errors" and I have to jump through hoops just to disable or swop the order of monitors. If Ubuntu could sort all that out I'd be miles happy.

It autodetected my "second monitor" possibility (I have a laptop, so I can connect to beamers and it detects that). Support for ATI cards is getting more and more decent (in fact, I got an update on that today!) and I think support for nVidia cards is awesome.

There's a "restricted drivers manager" with more experimental drivers so your hardware will at least work if there's no full driver for it yet. It's why all my hardware works.

Worth a try, anyway? And else, perhaps something like BSD and variants?

I'm running Omega drivers, this is what I have to do-

Plug in DVI cable. XP does desktop spanning.
I'd click swop monitors (so I can disable the iMacs main monitor), but it'd throw up some stuff about a certain refresh rate not being compatible.
Using ATi Tool I manually force the monitor to use a refresh rate.
Disable monitor in Omega (but is always reset on reboot).
Also on reboot (or sleep) I have to change the resolution of the 2nd monitor else it just uses the 1st monitors res.

In OSX you just go to displays and tell it what to use I'm hoping Ubuntu has something similar.

Allllso is it possible to disable that ****ing Windows key when playing games or full screen apps?

Yeah, right.

I meant ones like OpenBSD or FreeBSD, anyway. Which would then, if you are serious, be an open source Mac OSX?
