It (almost) sure will. Since your Mac is almost certainly is an Apple-branded Intel-based DDR2 RAM SATA HDD etc etc etc personal computer - why wouldn't it?

You just need a little know-how in order to make it happen.

If you have an old PowerMac with IBM or Motorola CPU then no, it will not.

I have had no problem with it. Seems like a very good OS. Not as stable as OS/2 but hey, you can't have everything.

Sure, it's easy. Give your Mac a lobotomy then load the kludge.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

SP2 will free about 40G of space on your boot drive, believe it or not.

I have never had a problem with any MS OS (even ME), the only one that disappointed was Windows 95, that because I was stupid enough to "upgrade" my OS on an existing PC designed for Win3x (live and learn). The performance gain from my XP PCs to my Vista PCs is/was breathtaking. What's not to like?
