I've used OS 9 and X with both Internet Explored and Netscape and have never experience a problem. In fact, the only time I ever have a problem is when I move on a PC. Something about the Mac's sleek design helps channel my creative thinking powers into more productive avenues. I play much better on a Mac. In fact, I'm 142-0 while playing on a Mac, and 0-91 while playing on PCs.
