Trainwreck, indeed...while 8.6 was a gem on the IIci, on m 8500 it was
showing its' weaknesses. 9.2.2 has run beautifully on 8500.

The 9 series on the Rev.B iMac was another story...when I moved it up to
10.2.8, it was great though.

Personally, I LOVE OS X! The only time I run the non-X OS is on my 8500
(the 8500 is one of the problem-children of the Unsupported OS X
machines...I haven't had a lot of luck with it, unlike the 7600 which
has been running OS X quite gracefully).
