My boss...has just bought four G3's. These will not
run much of our existing software, are incompatible with most of our
hardware
(including our 21" $2000 monitors), cannot run OS7.6.1 (we all think that
OS8
is a waste of time). I could not get any Printer Driver from HP that works
with our network printer.

John--  Perhaps all the stuff would run if you used the system and related
software that came with the G3 machines. Everything I own is happier with
OS8--including an upgraded PB500.

Happy New Year

Lest anyone get the idea that the G3 is not an absolutely
wonderful machine (which it is), I wanted to say this: In regard
to the original message about someone who had problems with
the MSP installer on a G3, I wrote to the company that makes
the installer software, and they gave me a long list of
possible causes, implying that it was either a bad download
or some random bug they can't seem to track down. However, they
did say that it had nothing to do with the machine being a G3.

I've installed MSP on a G3 many times without a problem, and,
once installed, have found its performance to be superior
to any other model.

I made it sort of work and then gave it back to Miller and his
colleagues for fine tuning. I'm not sure what its current status
is but I suspect that they will handle giving it out if and
when they decide to do so.
