there is a way to get trillian working.

1. Open Quicktime preferences by selecting “Preferences” and then “QuickTime Preferences…” from the “Edit” menu in the QuickTime player application. A dialog box will pop up, with the title: “Quicktime Settings”.
2. Select the “Advanced” tab in this dialog, and in the third section from the top, called “Video” select “Safe Mode (GDI Only)”
3. Close the QuickTime player, and exit the QuickTime system tray application as well


seemed questionable to me but apparently quicktime is used by trillians ui

Not true at all. The golden rule of any IT department that is worth their wight is to not jump on new software when they get released and to wait a while for bugs to be ironed out. Thats why companies such as Motorola wait before upgrading their O/* and installing service packs. We didn't use SP2 until early last year. The IT department at that shipping company needs to be fired.

I think he meant if it was done at any time. Even when the place I work for upgraded to SP2 long after it was released, there were still problems.

It does seem surprising that a company would upgrade to a new OS so soon after its release. I don't see what the hurry could have been for them to upgrade so quickly.

For me I'll probably stay with XP on the PC for a long time to come. Afterall I use OSX 95% of the time. And I use the PC mostly for games and music on my surround sound.

Our company I.T. people have tried it and don't like it.
They said it was so different that retraining would be required.
Not to mention all the programs would have to be changed to be compatible......so they say.

Have any of you tried Office 2007?

I'm pretty much in love with it.
