Apple's PowerShare software

Send Article to a Friend

Apple's PowerShare software (the server component that can be used with the PowerTalk client software) will no longer include a copy of System 7 Pro in the box, effective today. The server software will require (but will not include) System 7.5 with PowerTalk installed. Some sites use PowerTalk in its basic peer-to-peer form, which requires no server, but others find the PowerShare server useful. [MHA]
