Macboy Fan strikes again! I couldn't have said it better myself, so read the analogy below ...
(Extension) Conflicts! Where is Conflict Catcher when you need it?
Maybe if they upgraded to Mac OS X, they could do away with all kinds of (extension) conflicts for good. It should also prevent random (system) bombs from appearing and doing damage.
If they wanted to stay with Mac OS 9, I would suggest deleting the (hard disk) partitions and doing a clean (system) install. Getting a package like Rewind is useful too, just in case you need to quickly uninstall a piece of software that just caused another conflict.
Seriously I hope they do something soon. I am ashamed to call myself a member of the human race at the moment. The same rules that apply with Macs apply with people. If you have conflicts everything crashes and bombs. But when you resolve those conflicts, you have harmony, the most stable Mac and the greatest place to live on the planet.
Who doesn't want that?
