3465Going to the Darkest Side?
- Nov 9, 2006The SheepShaver install is intimidating - well, not SheepShaver itself, but getting and
setting up all the stuff needed to make it work. I've studied the info on the site John
referenced and extracted step-by-step instructions. I've only gotten about half-way
through them and already encountered several problems, and I'm not confident about
some of the remaining steps.
Meanwhile, I have a lot of Mac WP docs that I need to be working on, and my OS 9 iMac is
sauteed (not *quite* fried, but close!). I do have access to an OS X iMac with Classic, but
it's less convenient, and I'd *really* like to use my beautiful new 20" iBook with something
other than TextEdit.
So, here are my choices -
1)continue slogging through the SheepShaver instructions, maybe or maybe not getting it
2)Buy MS Office and use Word - I need Excel and PowerPoint anyway so that's no biggie
(and of course my previous version won't work on the Intel beastie).
3) OR, what about buying - gulp - Windoze and PC WordPerfect? The new Intel Mac came
with Parallels Desktop, so I *could* do that.....
Which side is the darkest - Word on Mac, or WordPerfect under Windoze?
Any thoughts on the above?
