Well, now all that's different is the hardware. But my question is,
what makes mac hardware so much better than Windows stuff?
I do have to admit that i like the idea of just being able to walk up to any computer, hit a hotkey and have a screenreader. I've never been a mac geek, but I do have to say I'm impressed with the idea. Now all they need to do is make it a *true* screenreader, one that is as powerful as JAWS and Window-eyes. Right now, it is good but there are still limitations.

Actually I would be much happier if it were to go the other way - run Mac OS X on generic Intel machines. I would love to run the Mac OS on my currently owned windows box. In fact, if Voice over gets just a little bit better, i would love to scrap winblows entirely and just run the Mac and Linux partitions instead. But to buy a new Mac from start, that would set me back quite a bit.

I assume that we could potentially load jaws on to the Mac and use it with XP, and then play with voiceover every now and then. Allison
