Ah, the memories.

Mac OS X is five years old this month, and Apple’s gone through five revisions to this OS (counting the Public Beta) with a sixth on the way. Remember when the latest and greatest OS from Apple had a desktop that looked like this?  
I remember booting it up, and being a little confused. Why’d they move the Apple menu to the middle of the menubar? Then, after trying to click on the Apple logo in the middle of the menu bar, I remember getting angry. How the heck was I going to get to the Recent Items if there wasn’t a freakin’ Apple menu? Then I downloaded Classic Menu and life was good again. Until I realized that the Chooser was gone, how was I going to set up printing? Gah! 
It took me a while to get used to X, and I think it wasn’t until 10.2 first came out that I started using OS X regularly as opposed to playing in OS X and getting real work done in OS 9. 
Anybody else got memories of their 9 to X changeover to share? Let me know in the comments.
