On OS X? I highly doubt it. No Netscape 3 or IE 3 on OS X.

Those who are complaining about the oh-so-expensive Mac hardware: $999 for a laptop, and $799 for the original iMac with the CRT screen, doesn't strike me as prohibitive. Maybe a $100 premium over Intel hardware. Only issue as I see it is you can't build your own (and building your own is in practice usually more expensive than buying).
