Don't be too distressed by all the reports of conflicts with
OS 7.6 reported here. The good news is that most reader reports are quite positive about using Mac OS 7.6. The single biggest positive comment: better stability. System crashes happen much less often with the new OS. Though my experience is clearly subjective, I agree with this assessment. The number of times I have to reboot has gone way down (and when a crash does occur, the restart time is also much faster).
