 iBook-User Poll: 

This Week's Poll :
How Much Did You Spend Upgrading Programs for OS 9 ?


Reports say many user applications require updating due to the fact that in OS 9 , Apple has changed and improved how some system routines are now done. Including changes to Sherlock, Multi-user log in's ect.

In some cases upgrading will consist of a free update posted on the various software makers web sites and some will require some $$ to move up to the compliant OS 9 version.

To check what programs you have that may be affected, check out Version Tracker an excellent resource.

So we want you go thru all the programs you upgraded and count your reciepts on how much you spent then let us know in our poll.


So Go Vote:

Thank You Voting for this poll is over
