Poll Preview: 68K or Bust?! Before there were candy-colored iMacs dual processor G4s, or convection-cooled cubes, Apple spent more than a decade building "68K Macs" based on the Motorola 68000 processor family. Many of these systems (ranging from the original 128K Mac through the once-mighty Quadras and several iterations of the PowerBook line) are still in use today for word processing, email, and various server duties (TidBITS Talk is served from an 11-year-old SE/30!). But the longevity of these systems owes as much to software as hardware, and these days most software is developed only for PowerPC-based systems. So this week we ask: Do you still use a 68000-based Macintosh, and if so, do you attempt to keep its software up-to-date? Vote on our home page! [GD]
