Copy Disk Image as Folder

When you open a .dmg file, a disk image is mounted. You are then generally supposed to copy the contents of that disk image to your hard drive (to your Desktop, your Applications folder, or wherever). But what if you want to copy the whole disk image, including all its contents, as a folder? Hold the Option key, and drag the "proxy icon" in the title bar of the disk image window to the destination in the Finder.

Mac Users Willing to Upgrade to Win95?

It appears the folks at Ziff-Davis publishing are surveying computer users about their willingness to upgrade to Windows 95. This survey is accessible on the Web at the Ziff-Davis site. In jest, I took the survey, but I was surprised to discover that they seem to expect Macintosh users to respond. So, through the survey, it was duly noted that I'm comfortable with my iteration of System 7, and that I'm not interested in upgrading to an OS that won't run on my computer. [These surveys are never statistically valid because of the way the data are collected, so hey, stop in and let Ziff-Davis know what you as a Mac user think of Windows 95. -Adam]
