Mac OS X testing at the Meyer Media Lab

Classroom Technology Services has upgraded two Apple Macintosh G4 Towers at the Meyer Media Lab at 1154 Meyer Hall from Mac OS 9 to Mac OS X (10.3). This deployment is part of a larger pilot project to evaluate the feasibility of installing OS X on all Apple computers in open access labs, computer classrooms and media labs. Deployment and security issues have been the major hurdles in migrating from OS 9 to OS X.

Faculty who use Mac computer classrooms will be notified so they can evaluate the new operating system, test class-specific software, and provide general feedback on the upgrade.

Information about IET-managed computer rooms is available via the Classroom Technology Services Web site.
