So, yesterday I got disgusted with trying to run OS X in half the memory it's supposed to run in. (Certainly can't fault it for being sluggish in a below-spec setup, though I'll give it good credit for running acceptably anyway) And while I paid more than I potentially could have--$50 for 256M--instant gratification's a nice thing. Now the PowerMac OS X machine's at a comfortable 256M and purring away.
Now all I have to do is get over how cheap it all was. I remember getting a 16K memory cartridge for my Atari 800 when I first got the thing and paying (significantly) more than $50 for it. Sixteen thousand times the memory (more or less) at less than a third the price. The mind does boggle at times.
