You can also buy (much cheaper than through the developer's web site) from
the App store. Unfortunately, I'm running 10.5.8 and can't. :-(
FWIW I am currently migrating from Ubuntu and its Linux Mint derivative,
largely down to the fact I couldn't get the display working properly on a
couple of old Pentium 4 systems I have inherited, but that was the straw
that broke the camel's back.
Linux Mint is a bad word here. The owner of it (the guy that started it, and
runs the project) went all anti-Israel and he and his linux distro
are now persona-non-grata here. It's kind of stupid IMHO as there are Israelis
involved and contributing to all parts of Linux and have been since the early
1990s so if he wanted to be anti-Israel, he'd have to find a different
operating system to use to push his pro-terror, racist agenda.
I installed Linux Mint LMDE (Debian) with the XFCE* window manager and it
runs nicely on these old systems. I am gradually moving my virtual Linux
instances to that as well, for consistency.
I thought one of the selling points of Linux was that it can be used to
utilise old hardware, but Ubuntu really bitches when it finds that up to
date video hardware isn't present.
Linus' goal was to write a terminal emulator that would get him a good grade.
It just sort of took off on its own and became an operating system.
Each distro is Linux packaged in a way, with different things that
make their distro different than anyone else's. UBUNTU wants to be the
replacement for Windows. Complete with many polices that seem worse than
I wasn't aware of that when I decided to upgrade my RedHat 7.2 systems to
Ubuntu 8.10. Now that I've done it, I live with it. Being from around 2001,
the RedHat systems were way out of date, and impossible to keep updated.
