Most people are so lazy, they don't even exercise good judgement!

Hack: Asus P5Q-EM, Intel Q6600, Crucial 8GB DDR2, nVIDIA 8800GT/512MB, Optiarc AD-7200S, A few HDs (All SATA), X.5.7 Retail

Into it just for the fun of it...

One of the living legends of Newton community lives near Hamburg/Germany, he used to service mine back in the day when I was using it 24/7. Mine still works ok, I used to abuse the backlight (must have replaced it a couple of times).

I still got the original one bought in '94. Got it out 3 month ago and was still impresst by the concept, even though the first one was too slow and not much of use in daily life.
Realy had a Star Trek feel to it in '94.

ditto,

I got mine (MP2100) in '97 when handwriting recognition was working fine. I still find Larry Yeager's work impressive, I'm a tablet-type and this technology still lives under MacOS X's Ink.

Great!
A. Does it still exist in OS X 10.5?
B. Are there any OSx86 compatable input devices?

I guess any MacOS-compatible wacom would play nice with the hacks (unless there're generic usb issues on a particular mobo). Here's the Wireless model working as it should on my hack:
