you know, I find that OSX crashes (or needs a restart) just as often 
as OS9. In fact, programs tend to crash more often than in 9.

Now, it may be bc I have an upgrade chip in the B&W, but I really 
dont find X all that stable. Camino crashes all the time. Eudora 
quits a lot. Sometimes that forces the whole machine to want to be 

I reAlly would rather use safari, but the dammed white background bugs me.

plus, I've had _tons_ of problems with classic mode hanging on 
startup, crashing, etc.

I am trying to find time to backup files onto cd, and then do a 
complete wipe of my HD and reinstall the OS.(es).
