Grin RE: Anyone running SleepyHead on Mac?
Good to know the stability is good. With a lot of pre-release software, you just never know what you're getting. So far after a week of use I'm impressed with it.

As to the Mac, of course you are correct, I should have said a unix type system instead of Linux. The origin is of FreeBSD as you state. Certainly one of the most closed software bases historically. I am reading and trying to come up to speed on Mac as quickly as possible. I believe I read that prior to Yosemite, maybe the one before it, X11 was removed from the OS. Although, I read it can all be reinstalled. I was looking at trying to install a particular program, from Linux world, in the Mac and it gave a pathway to reinstalling X11 and some other things that would restore the environment to allow running the program.

As to the Mac Air in general, I think I like it. It is starting to grow on me I think. Still getting used to the keyboard. The GUI is certainly pretty and as always it's just a matter of getting used to a different way of doing things. My son, who's a Cisco/IT guy, said get something called Cheatsheet to try to learn the hotkey combos.

I'll get there. Just a matter of time.

Thanks

Tyroneshoes,
Being a Mac guy, what would you recommend as a virtualization option for running those few pesky Windoze apps?
I used VirtualBox in Ubuntu quite well. Also heard of Fusion and Parallels. Any opinion on these or other options for a Mac Air?

Gosh, I had no trouble at all with that transition. It was quite a bit harder to learn the new Word menu interface, but in the end I found it was better than the old drop down menus.

I have used all three of those applications. VirtualBox is free so that's what I would recommend. May depend on the Windows apps you need to run.
Support Windows and Macs by day, use Mac by choice at night.
