I am looking looking for Linux PPC owners so
I can publish a Belofte PPC Linux version.
There are different sub-platforms on the Mac. There is Mac
OS 7, 8, 9 and then Mac OS X with or without classic. While
the older platforms are of use for the users who did not
upgrade there machines recently, this site is mostly
oriented towards Mac OS X. The users of the older
platforms are not left alone though and their programmes
are also listed.
Enjoy this independent site.
Returning visitors will want to check the History table to
verify what was added to this site
since their last visit.
Contact me at macchess@-remove-this-internetcontact.be
and tell me what you think. I consider 'all' serious remarks.
People looking for Schaak, Echecs, Schach, Шахматьі
and Ajedrez may also arrive on this page. Unfortunately, there is no
translation for them and they will have to read the English pages.
(Some may have figured it out, this has been added to increase the
ranking in the search engines :-) )
