MacIvories and Mac System 7.0?

   Back off bashing on Symbolics regarding Mac System 7.0.

   Apple blew off 2 years putting it together.  For what?  Some minor
   cleanups, a few cute but annoying gimmicks and a slow virtual memory
   system?  You don't want System 7.0 on your machine right away anyhow.
   It's buggy and lots of stuff doesn't run on it.  Wait 'til 7.1 hits the
   streets, then try it.

Oh, c'mon!  cute but annoying?  Doesn't "balloon help" just make you
titter?  Rumor has it one can even style the balloons to phrase
like Mary Worth or those Lichtensteinish captions ("..why, why does it
have to be this way?  I just want the control panel..").  They won't
get hit with "look-and-feel" on that one because no one else would be
so silly.  I love Macs, but this is too much.  I'm waiting for them to
animate the cursor into a little mouse.
